All meetings of "TOKYO GX WEEK" have ended.

What is “TOKYO GX WEEK”?

Climate change is an issue that the whole world must urgently confront together. We must achieve worldwide carbon neutrality as soon as possible to achieve the targets laid out in the Paris Agreement.
However, the economic and geographical circumstances of each country are different, and in order to promote effective emissions mitigation, it is essential to accelerate the transitions of each country based on their diverse circumstances, by utilizing a wide range of technologies and energy sources, rather than adopting a uniform approach. In addition to transitioning through various pathways, we must create innovations that are not simple extensions of conventional technologies and engage with developing countries to realize decarbonization.
In this regard, we will hold the "TOKYO GX WEEK" inviting ministers and world leaders in various fields, with the aim of realizing GX (Green Transformation), which will shift the economic, social, and industrial structure that have depended on fossil fuels since the Industrial Revolution, to structures driven by clean energy, and drive economic growth and development through emissions mitigation.

  • Second Asia Green Growth Partnership Ministerial Meeting

    Second Asia Green Growth Partnership Ministerial Meeting

    Date
    September 26 (Mon.)

    In order to simultaneously achieve economic growth and carbon neutrality in emerging countries in Asia and elsewhere, we need diverse and realistic energy transitions that take each country's circumstances into account and that utilize every possible energy source and technology. In line with this idea, attendees from participating countries will hold further deliberations taking note of discussions at the AGGPM Public-Private Forum in April. We plan to share our discussions with the international community with a view toward fora such as the G20 and COP27.

    Co-organizer
    New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)

    The first ever Hydrogen Energy Ministerial Meeting was held in Japan in 2018 as a platform for promoting hydrogen usage on a global scale and for concerned countries to coordinate and work together. This year marks its fifth meeting. This fifth meeting, based on current energy circumstances, will focus on addressing energy security, the encouraging national- and regional-level involvement in taking part in hydrogen-related efforts, and how support should be provided in order to drive hydrogen usage.

    September 28 (Wed.)
    Co-organizer
    Clean Fuel Ammonia Association (CFAA)

    In order to establish stable, low-cost and flexible supply chains and markets for fuel ammonia as zero-emission fuel, the International Conference on Fuel Ammonia will be held with related countries, companies and organizations to build a foundation for international collaboration among concerned parties that transcends national boundaries. At the conference, we will deepen discussions with potential supplier countries such as Saudi Arabia about the direction of actions to enhance international recognition of fuel ammonia and expand its supply and demand.

    September 29 (Thur.)
    Co-organizer
    Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre (APERC)

    The LNG Producer-Consumer Conference is the world's largest LNG-related international conference, where producer and consumer countries gather to discuss the development of the global LNG market. This year's conference is its 11th year. It will focus on LNG, which is attracting increasing attention not only as a response to climate change but also from the perspective of stable energy supply amid the drastically changing international energy situation, and will deepen discussions on future market prospects and the measures required of the public and private sectors.

    Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia

    The Asia CCUS Network was launched in June last year as an international industry-academia-government platform to share knowledge and develop a business environment for the utilization of CCUS (Carbon dioxide Capture, Utilization, and Storage) throughout Asia. In this second forum, we will review the progress made over the past year and advance toward the creation of common rules to ensure stable CCUS projects within an Asia-wide CCUS network through panel discussions among participating countries.

  • Fourth TCFD Summit

    Fourth TCFD Summit

    Date
    October 5 (Wed.)
    Co-organizers
    TCFD Consortium, The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)

    As financial institutions become increasingly important in pushing for stronger climate change countermeasures, there is a growing international tendency to make disclosure of climate-related financial information compulsory for companies. This is the goal of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), established per the G20's request for a framework for such disclosures. At this year's TCFD Summit, industry and financial leaders will discuss what disclosures should look like in order to ensure that investors can properly appraise transition and innovation efforts—an important part of improving the quality of disclosures and achieving carbon neutrality based on shared international rules—and ensure that said disclosures will encourage financing. Participants will also speed up the flow of financing to help companies achieve carbon neutrality.
