お知らせ CRF publishes a proposal for carbon neutrality by 2050 — Toward net zero CO2emissions and new business creation through carbon recycling

The Carbon Recycling Fund Institute (“CRF”) has recently put forward a proposal calling for “Sustainable Carbon Society” based on carbon recycling, which will be underpinned by net zero CO2 emissions and new business creation through carbon recycling, in the hope of helping achieve the 2050 carbon neutrality goal.


The proposal has been compiled in response to the opinions and requests of the corporate members of CRF and is based on available surveys and analyses. Refined as a result of a series of dialogs with key stakeholders, the proposal emphasizes the three focus areas mentioned below. Dr. Yoshimitsu Kobayashi, CRF Chairperson, gave a presentation about it to the parliamentarians of the Liberal Democratic Party’s Carbon Neutrality Promotion Headquarters at their meeting on May 10, 2021.


Toward the realization of carbon neutrality by 2050, CRF will continue to work closely with the industry, academia, and government to have the proposal implemented.


Focus areas of the proposal

  1. Development and promotion of innovation and human resource development
  2. Improvement of the market environment
