Climate social fund is intended to cushion higher CO2 prices

The EU Commission wants to set up a social fund to alleviate high CO2 prices for houses and traffic. In addition, Brussels wants to remove more emission rights and involve industry more. Dhe proponents of EU emissions trading have long struggled to get it recognized as an instrument for reducing CO2 emissions. That has changed since the prices for CO2 rights have risen to more than 50 euros per ton, thus creating a clear incentive to abandon coal-fired power generation. The European Commission therefore wants to make emissions trading a central element of climate policy on the way to climate neutrality in 2050. The “Fit for 55” package announced for mid-July on how the EU is to reduce emissions by 55 percent by 2030 will contain proposals for reform and expansion of emissions trad...

Domestic greenhouse gas emissions decrease for the second consecutive year Ministry of the Environment announces preliminary figures for FY2003

On the 6th, the Ministry of the Environment and the National Institute for Environmental Studies announced “preliminary figures” that domestic emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) were 1,321 million tons (CO2 equivalent) in FY2015. It decreased by 3.0% from the previous year, the second consecutive year of decrease.According to the ministry, the actual result for FY2003 was 5.2% lower than that for FY2005. The government has set a short-term target of 3.8% reduction in FY2008 compared to FY2005, and this short-term target has been achieved.Looking at CO2 emissions, which account for the majority of greenhouse gases, by emission sector in FY2003, the industrial sector (factories, etc.) was 413 million tons, a decrease of 2.1% (8.6 million tons) from the previous year. ...

Greenhouse gas emissions in FY2004 decreased by 1.2% from the previous year

The Ministry of the Environment announced on the 24th that carbon dioxide (CO)2) Etc. Greenhouse gas emissions in FY2016 are CO2It announced that it was 1,307 million tons, down 1.2% from the previous year. The ministry announced a “preliminary figure” of 1,322 million tons in December last year, but this time it is a “confirmed figure.” This is the third consecutive year of decline, and the ministry is attributed to the expansion of the introduction of renewable energy such as solar power generation and wind power generation, the spread of energy saving, and the restart of some nuclear power plants.The confirmed value is the official value to be submitted to the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Under the Paris Agreement, an international framework...

A new guideline for accurate calculation of greenhouse gas emissions was established. Agreed at the IPCC General Assembly in Kyoto

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) General Assembly, which was held in Kyoto City from the 8th, will be held on the 12th, the final day of the meeting, and will include new guidelines for more accurate calculation of greenhouse gas emissions. Was agreed and announced at the general meeting venue on the morning of the 13th. It incorporates the latest scientific knowledge such as the calculation method of emissions, and is fairer and fairer than the conventional one as an important guideline for emission control measures.In order to comply with the Paris Agreement to prevent global warming, each country calculates greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the guidelines of the IPCC and reports them to the United Nations. The Paris Agreement requires all countries, both...
