Green Transportation

The Japanese automotive sector accounts for 18% of the total emission amount of Japan’s economy. Even though the trend of reducing such level is uncontested, Japanese manufacturers still have not reached the CO2 emission levels of 1990. In 2016, the total amount of CO2 released in Japan was 1.22 billion tons. Both the government and the industry are striving to implement new policies while increasing the degree of technological innovation.
