Quantified economy-wide emission reduction target for 2020

Japan’s emission reduction target

Japan announced a target of a 3.8 per cent emission reduction by 2020 compared with 2005 levels.

The target does not currently take into account the emission reduction effect resulting from nuclear power, given that the energy policy and energy mix, including the utilization of nuclear power, are still under consideration. A firm target, based on further review of the energy policy and energy mix, will eventually be set.
