Hiroshima City 

The G7 Summit will be held in the City of Hiroshima from May 19 to 21, 2023.

Hiroshima City, located in the western part of Hiroshima Prefecture, is surrounded by lush green mountains and hills with the Chugoku Mountains in the background, and the scenic Seto Inland Sea to the south. The city is blessed with rich nature and a mild climate, with six rivers flowing through the city center, the Ota River as their source, forming a unique landscape known as the ‘City of Water.’
Hiroshima is actively working towards becoming a ‘Zero Emission City’ by minimizing waste and its environmental impact. The city has made significant progress in waste reduction and recycling. In terms of addressing Climate Change, Hiroshima aims to achieve virtually zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. The city is implementing energy-saving measures and promoting renewable energy. In addition, Hiroshima declared a ‘Hiroshima Climate Emergency’ in July 2022.
