Japanese Municipalities with Ambitious Targets to Reduce CO2/GHG Emissions

Keywords: Climate Change Local government 

While national governments fail to set proactive targets to fight climate change, municipal governments in Japan and in many countries around the world are setting aggressive targets and attempting to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) or greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. JFS would like to collaborate with and stimulate these forward-looking efforts in Japan and overseas.

If you know of ambitious targets of municipalities not included in this list, please share the information with us and provide a web link (URL) to the source, using this online form. We will review information received and add it to the list.

* We added Yamanashi with its ambitious target.
