At the end of 2019, Asuka Jusen, an expert in the field of environmental policy and professor of Northeastern University of Japan, visited REEI. We invited him to accept the visit to see how he answered the hot topics of climate change and Japan's environmental policy development. The video is divided into 3 segments and 6 questions.
The main contents of the video are as follows:
Q1: How to comment on the negotiation results of cop25?
Q2: Which enterprises have set the goal of achieving net zero carbon emission by 2050 or before 2050? Will Japanese companies play an important role in pushing the Japanese government to set a net zero target by 2050 or earlier?
Q3: The United States has launched a "Green New Deal", and the European Union has also released the "EU green agreement". Is Mr Koizumi Shinjiro, the new environment minister, likely to bring some changes to Japan's climate policy? Is Japan about to issue a similar "Green New Deal" copywriting?
Q4: How do you evaluate Greta Thunberg, a young girl of environmental protection?
Q5: What is the potential of updating NDC in Japan in 2020?
Q6: What are the opportunities for the development of renewable energy?
