The Center for Low Carbon Society Strategy, LCS, with an aim to construct a sustainable low carbon society, tries to broadly lay out the image of the society compatible with affluent life, and then realize it.

In order to contribute to the realization of the low carbon society, LCS draws up the image of a desirable society and formulates a scenario to indicate a path to attain its realization. It also examines comprehensive strategy for new technologies and necessary measures for social system design to accelerate the realization of the low carbon society. By utilizing these examination results, LCS aims at contributing to the creation of new industries and employment, and also creating the system for the low carbon society capable of becoming an international model.

To explicitly show the image of a sustainable and bright low carbon society is the role as well as vision of LCS. LCS presents the medium- and long-term scenarios that have optimally incorporated elemental technologies and systems necessary for this purpose. By the way, investment is required for the construction of the low carbon society. LCS presents a wide range of social scenario including a system to be able to finally recover such investment fund, accompanied by even economical growth. For this purpose, it is necessary to establish a scenario for 2020, on the way to the achievement of a long-term target by 2050. By clarifying the scenario in 2020, the specific contents of future technologies to be developed successively will become clear. It will become clear on how personal and family life, towns, urban areas, nation, and the world in the future are incorporated in the bright low carbon society, and on what kinds of breakthrough technologies and innovations will be adopted for this purpose.
