Green Tax Reform

The goal of the Climate Change program is to promote green economy and combat climate change through strengthening Japan’s domestic climate policies.

Our activities are focused on:
Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and International Cooperation
Mid-term Goals
Domestic emissions trading and Voluntary Action Plan

Besides, our green tax reform program advocates the use of economic instruments (such as carbon taxes) to combat climate change.
