Japan’s Priority Green Growth Sectors

Following on from the 3rd Green Innovation Committee held in early November, at the 4th Green Innovation Committee Meeting held later the same month, Japanese government ministries and agencies shared their action plans for each of the 14 priority areas identified as imperative to Japan’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. These action plans outlined countermeasures to address key challenges in each priority area.
At the Meeting, Committee members emphasized the importance of close coordination between government agencies and developing social implementation strategies that factor in not only supply-side considerations but also the demand side.
