Japan’s new Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced in his statement of belief that greenhouse gases would be reduced to zero by 2050.
"Responding to climate change is no longer a constraint on economic growth," Suga said.
"We need to change our thinking to the view that taking assertive measures against climate change will lead to changes in industrial structure and the economy that will bring about great growth." (CNN.com)
The EU, China, and the United States (Joe Biden, Democratic presidential nominee) have already declared zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (China 2060), so I feel like I lost it a little late, but Japan has clearly set a big goal. I think it is a very epoch-making speech.
Although we have time until 2050, it is clear that we cannot achieve this goal by working “on the extension of what we do now”, and I think that major social changes are needed.
Hydrogen, which is called the "ultimate clean energy", will be in the limelight in the future and will contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions.
