Japanese indus groups against specifying emissions cut target
Tokyo: Nine Japanese industry groups have
express their opposition to specifying the nation`s greenhouse
gas emissions cut target in an anti-global warming bill which
the government plans to present to the current Diet session.
The Japan Iron and Steel Federation, the Federation of
Electric Power Companies of Japan and other groups said in a
statement that spelling out the target to cut the emissions by
25 percent from 1990 levels by 2020 would not lead to a "real
solution" to the problem unless international fairness is
The groups also expressed opposition to the inclusion in
the government bill of a domestic greenhouse gas emissions
trading system and taxation to fight global warming.
They said that such systems would have a "heavy impact on
people`s lives and industrial activities," but that there has
not been any examination of their possible effects or their
potential burdens on people.
The industry groups said that if the government submitted
the bill to the Diet without providing sufficient explanations
and information to people, the move could not be described as
a "democratic process."
They also cited the idea of promoting the reduction of
greenhouse gas emissions through transferring Japan`s
energy-saving technologies to other countries.
