By fiscal year 2030, reduce fluorinated gases (including HFCs, PFCs, SF6 and NF3) by 25.1% compared to fiscal year 2013, equivalent to approximately 28.9 million t-CO2. (Act on Rational Use and Proper Management of Fluorocarbons)
By fiscal year 2030, reduce methane by 12.3% compared to fiscal year 2013, equivalent to 31.6 million t-CO2.
Subsidies for emissions reductions for implementation of new technologies. Emission reductions are based on an emissions reduction target set by entities, based on emissions from the most recent three years. Double counting of subsidies with J-credits and JCM is prohibited.
By fiscal year 2030, achieve savings of 50.3 billion liters crude oil equivalent, equivalent to a 35% improvement on energy efficiency. (2015 Long-term Energy Supply and Demand Outlook)
Electric power companies are required to purchase electricity generated from renewable sources under a feed-in-tariff scheme.
By the 2030 fiscal year, for approximately 22-24% of power generation to come from renewable sources: – Solar – approximately 7% – Wind – approximately 1.7% – Geothermal – approximately 1-1.1% – Hydro power – approximately 8.8-9.2% – Biomass – approximately 3.7-4.6%
By the 2030 fiscal year,for approximately 20-22% of power generation to come from nuclear power.
By the 2030 fiscal year,a 25% reduction of emissions from energy-originated CO2 below 2013 levels, equivalent to a 24% reduction below 2005 levels. (Global Warming Countermeasure Promotion Act)
Tax reductions and subsidies of 50 to 100% for hybrids, plug-in electric, electric, fuel cell, clean diesel and natural gas vehicles.
Tax breaks for low-polluting vehicles and higher tax rates for petrol based vehicles more than 13 years old and diesel vehicles more than 11 years old.
A 2030 aim for 70% of new vehicles sold to be highly energy efficient vehicles.
By the 2030 fiscal year, remove 37 million tonnes of CO2 through cropland management, grazing land management, and revegetation. This is equivalent to a 2.6% reduction based on the 2013 fiscal year. (Global Warming Countermeasure Promotion Act)
The Japanese greenhouse gas emission reduction certification system (J-credit) generates offsetting credits for approved methodologies applied within Japan. It covers sectors including energy, industrial processes, agriculture, waste and forestry.
The Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) allows Japanese and foreign firms to invest in emission reduction projects and programs in developing countries to earn offset credits. It covers sectors including electricity production and distribution, transportation, industry and waste management.
By 2050, an 80% economy wide reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, with the base year unclear. (The Plan for Global Warming Countermeasures under the Global Warming Countermeasure Promotion Act)
By fiscal year 2030, a 26% economy wide reduction of greenhouse emissions below 2013 levels, equivalent to a 25.4% reduction below 2005 levels. (The Plan for Global Warming Countermeasures under the Global Warming Countermeasure Promotion Act)
