Plan for Global Warming Countermeasures

The Plan for Global Warming Countermeasures was released by the Cabinet in order to promote global warming countermeasures comprehensively and strategically, based on the Paris agreement and Japan’s INDC. The Plan is the legal and administration backbone for domestic implementation of Japanese emission reduction goals.
The plan defines a path to achieve a mid-term target of 26% greenhouse gas emission reduction by 2030 compared to 2013, clarifying cross-cutting policies and measures to be implemented, and also sets a long-term goal to pursue 80% reduction by 2050.This plan lays down the foundations to the future progress of global warming countermeasures in Japan. Monitoring and evaluation mechanism inherent in the plan is a critical point for the steady implementation. The progress of actions will be reviewed every year, and the plan itself will be evaluated every three years.
