Serious about decarbonization

The global trend toward a green society cannot be avoided. We intend to aggressively address the issue,” Suga said in his speech, indicating his determination to use all policy means available to achieve his goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Global warming is seen as a crisis shared by all humanity. However, it cannot be said that Japan has been aggressive in its actions compared with countries in Europe and elsewhere.

Serious about digitalization

In parallel with decarbonization, Suga has positioned digitalization as an important area of reform that directly affects people’s lives.
With the digital agency slated to be launched next autumn as the command center, Suga said he wants disparate municipal systems “unified and standardized within five years.”
“We will gather about 100 highly specialized professionals from the private sector and create a model that allows them to advance their careers while going back and forth between the public and private sectors. We will create digital professions within the recruitment framework for civil servants,” he said in his speech, adding that this would make it clear how serious his administration takes the matter.

The strategy identified 14 industries, such as offshore wind, hydrogen and fuel ammonia as well as autos and rechargeable batteries and roadmap for each sector. The strategy shows an installation target for offshore wind power of up to 45 gigawatts by 2040.
