The Japanese new Prime Minister Suga declared that Japan would achieve carbon neutral by 2050. Carbon neutral means that the emission and absorption of greenhouse effect gases balances. So far, actually, the target was not so clear. But Suga and the government finally set a clear date. According to this declaration, the policies will be also changed.
Finally in Japan, one big target to solve the worldwide environmental problem has set. Regarding the energy strategy in Japan, before the earthquake disaster happened in March 2011 including Fukushima nuclear power plant problem, the government was going to increase nuclear power plants and decrease fossil power plant in Japan because at that time Japanese industries heavily relied on fossil fuels. That was the original energy supply strategy in Japan to contribute to the worldwide greenhouse gas problem.
However, after that earthquake Japan had to reconsider how to contribute due to the Fukushima nuclear power plant problem. But for a while there has not been a clear strategy.
For this reason, the declaration by the Prime Minister Suga this time has a great impact on the Japanese industries. They will soon move to establish decarbonized society according to the declaration. We should check the movement by them.
