What is Japan Climate Leader's Partnership?
Japan Climate Leader's Partnership was established in 2009 as a unique Japanese coalition of companies, recognizing that the industry must have a healthy sense of urgency and act proactively to realize a decarbonized society.
As of March 2023, 230 companies from a broad range of industries, including some of Japan's leading companies, are members. Coalition's total sales are approximately 130 trillion yen, and total electricity consumption is approximately 66TWh (reference and approximate values including overseas).
For the realization of a decarbonized society, they have been promoting collaboration with local governments and overseas organizations, such as by concluding a comprehensive partnership agreement with Yokohama City and serving as a local partner of The Climate Group, an international non-profit organization, as a contact point for the promotion of RE100, EV100 and EP100.
