Publication of Research Results on Decarbonized Lifestyle by Region

The results of the research into regional decarbonized lifestyles are now available at the National Institute for Environmental Studies website. What kind of decarbonization actions are effective for each prefecture, government-designated city and region, including the 12 local governments members of ICLEI Japan, as well as the GHG emissions (carbon footprint) per person per year for each lifestyle area such as food, clothing and housing. The data book, a PDF booklet released at the same time, also summarizes the effects of decarbonization actions, the current carbon footprint and an explanation of the options, with clear graphs for each city and region.

The PDF booklet is co-produced by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) and is open access. They can be reproduced, reprinted or modified for non-commercial purposes, as long as the source is clearly indicated, so they can be used freely in local governments publicity materials, school education, civic organization programs, etc.

The results of this research are also being used in citizen workshops for the IGES “1.5°C Lifestyle” project, which ICLEI Japan is also collaborating on. In the IGES “1.5°C Lifestyles” report published in 2020, national average data for around 30 decarbonization options were presented for mobility, housing and food. The new regional data presents around 60 options by local governments and region, including mobility, housing, food, consumer goods and leisure. >>>Read More
