Japan Commits to Carbon Neutrality by 2050 (.PDF Download)

Over the next 30 years, Japan plans to make the steady progression over to being a carbon-neutral nation—a distinction that just one country has attained.

A term used to describe the state of an entity where the carbon emissions it has caused have been balanced out by funding an equivalent amount of carbon savings elsewhere in the world, carbon neutrality is becoming a focal point for more companies, services, products and events.

Entire nations are also getting onboard with carbon neutrality. And while Bhutan is the only country so far to achieve the goal, Japan became the latest nation to throw its hat into the carbon neutral ring when it announced its intention to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) to net zero by 2050.
