Japan’s 2010 CO2 Emissions Down By 12.3% Compared to 1990

Posted on the 24 March 2012 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

Japan’s 2010 CO2 Emissions Down By 12.3% Compared to 1990That’s the good news. 20 years of efficiency gains, technological improvements, and policy tweaks have reduced the amount of CO2 produced by Japanese industries. What’s interesting is that emissions are actually up since 2009. Now, with the nuclear industry nearly shut down nation-wide (2 of 54 plants are in operation) and imports of oil, coal, and natural gas skyrocketing after the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami, emissions are bound to rise. But, for now, back to the good news, as reported by JFS:

“The report reveals that 34 industries in the industrial and energy- conversion sectors that participated in the 2011 follow-up together emitted 443.47 million tons of CO2 in fiscal 2010, a 12.3 percent decrease from 1990, but a 5.3 percent increase from 2009. Looking at individual industries, 24 industries reduced CO2 emissions when compared to fiscal 1990, while 11 did so when compared to 2009.”

There is no information on how much money was saved or spent in reaching the lower CO2 levels. The full Keidanren report, however, is loaded with industry break downs and other data.
