In October 2020, Prime Minister SUGA Yoshihide declared that Japan will aim to 
reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2050, namely, to realize a 
carbon-neutral, decarbonized society. To achieve such a society, technological 
innovation is required in every aspect. The exhibits at this pavilion explain 
some of the current technologies and initiatives of the companies that are 
striving to produce the innovations that will decarbonize Japan.

*Some international conferences related to climate change are planned for 
March, including the Asia-Pacific Seminar on Climate Change, the Zero Carbon 
City International Forum, and the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum. 
The goal of this pavilion is to take this opportunity to share information 
about Japan's climate change technologies and efforts.

*This exhibition is intended for technical preparation and pilot testing of the 
virtual pavilion that will be held at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference
