Japan Society – Toward a Sustainable Future: Climate & Environmental Policy in Japan & the U.S.

Climate change is significantly altering the environment, damaging ecosystems and fueling extreme weather events across the world, from deadly wildfires in California and Greece to devastating downpours and landslides in Japan. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released a code-red report definitively stating that today’s climate crisis is human-driven—how will the administrations of Japan and the U.S. prioritize their response? Prime Minister Suga has pledged Japan’s commitment to carbon neutrality by 2050, while the U.S. officially rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement during President Biden’s first hours in office. Corporations also have a critical role to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing toward a more sustainable future. In this webinar, experts discuss climate and environmental policy in Japan and the U.S., how leading corporations are addressing this challenge, and the potential of private-public partnerships as a policy response.
