〔Nagano Prefecture〕Climate Emergency Declaration “Go Zero Carbon by 2050”
Mr ABE Shuichi, Governor of Nagano Prefecture announced “Climate Emergency Declaration” on December 6, responding to “Resolution on Climate Emergency” at a regular prefectural assembly in November 2019. This is the first declaration by a prefecture in Japan.
In the declaration, we have determined to achieve “zero carbon emissions in 2050” to respond to the climate change using two approaches: Mitigation to reduce the climate change, and Adaptation to build cities that are resilient to disasters.
We will unite all citizens of Nagano to promote complete proliferation of energy efficiency and renewable energy in the prefecture. We will also build a disaster-resilient region with independent and distributed energy systems, expecting sustainable development of Nagano Prefecture.
