LCS aims to apply science and technology to create a sustainable low carbon society that will open new prospects for Japan's economic and social development. As we work toward these objectives, we will adhere to the following basic policies in our research and other activities, and make our results publically available.
We will accurately determine the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake and revise our preconditions if required, and study the feasibility of transitioning to a low carbon society from a wider perspective.
Our objective at LCS is to realize an affluent low carbon society with good prospects. We focus our research activities on three main pillars: quantitative technology scenarios, quantitative economic and social scenarios, and the construction of a sustainable low carbon social system.
Designing basic strategies and scenarios for realizing a low carbon society.
The structuring of low carbon technologies, and strategies for the development and dissemination of technologies for realizing a low carbon society
Research on regional low carbon society development.
Promoting understanding towards the realization of a low carbon society.
Designing and evaluating social systems for making the transition towards a low carbon society.
Designing economic and social systems for realizing a low carbon society.
A study on the global competitiveness of products that consume vast amounts of energy during production, using a global model.
Reducing agricultural loss due to plant disease, testing low carbon technologies and developing scenarios using abandoned or idle agricultural land.
We also proactively distribute these results to individuals, companies, local and national governments, and any others working to realize a low carbon society.
We would like to express our sincere sympathy to those who have suffered from the recent earthquake disaster.
