Basic Policies

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.

  • To design a society based on a low carbon lifestyle in order to achieve the objective of constructing a social system capable of sustainable economic and social development.
  • To create scenarios and strategies that can withstand the uncertainties of time to promote the transition to a low carbon society.
  • Based on the scenarios necessary for realizing a low carbon society, to propose strategies at the individual, regional and national government level.
