“On behalf of the GEF, I would like to welcome the commitment by Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and Environment Minister Shinjirō Koizumi for Japan to become carbon neutral by 2050. The transition to a safer and healthier planet will require leadership and bold action as demonstrated by Tokyo today. The GEF is standing by to help governments all over the world embrace carbon neutrality and make systemic decisions about how to get ahead of climate change and its risks.”
