Japan strengthens 2030 emissions cut target

Japan strengthens 2030 emissions cut target




Japan aims to สล็อต เกมเดิมพัน SLOTXO การันตีการจ่ายเงิน cut emissions 46 per cent by
2030, significantly more than previously pledged, the country's prime minister
announced Thursday (Apr 22) ahead of a key US-hosted climate summit.


"We aim to cut greenhouse gas (emissions) by 46 per cent in fiscal 2030 from
fiscal 2013," Yoshihide Suga told a meeting hours before the discussions called by
US President Joe Biden begin.


Japan's fiscal 2030 will begin in April of the calendar year.


The new target revises a previous goal of cutting emissions 26 per cent from 2013
levels by 2030.


Japan is still heavily reliant on fossil fuels, in part because many of its nuclear
reactors remain offline after the Fukushima meltdown a decade ago.


Suga last year set a 2050 deadline for Japan to become carbon-neutral, putting
it on the same timeline as the European Union and ahead of China's 2060 goal.


Environmentalists have urged nations to take more immediate action ahead of
the two-day virtual Earth Day summit organised by Biden.


Suga is one of 40 leaders attending the talks that kick off later Thursday,
heralding a US return to the climate front lines after Donald Trump's term.


Several other countries have also announced revised targets for slashing
emissions and more pledges are expected at the meeting.
