Japan’s greenhouse gas declines for the fourth consecutive year in FY17 The goal of the Paris Agreement requires further reduction efforts

On November 30, the Ministry of the Environment and the National Institute for Environmental Studies announced “preliminary figures” that the domestic emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) in FY2017 were 1,294 million tons (CO2 equivalent). It decreased by 1% from the previous year, the fourth consecutive year of decrease. A ministry official said that while the introduction of renewable energy has been expanded, it is necessary to accelerate emission reduction measures in order to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, an international framework for global warming countermeasures. It is said.According to the announcement, total greenhouse gas emissions in FY2017 were 1,294 million tons (CO2 equivalent, 1.0% decrease from the previous year, 8.2% decrease from 2013, ...

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...
