How Japan is accelerating efforts towards a carbon-neutral society

In the face of the climate crisis, 136 countries around the world have pledged to reach net zero by 2050. This includes Japan, which is on the path to carbon neutrality with an interim goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 46% compared to 2013 levels by 2030.

In June 2021, the Japanese government announced its Green Growth Strategy, which outlines the current status and challenges of 14 specified fields that are expected to grow. As part of this strategy, a Green Innovation Fund of $15 billion (around JPY 2 trillion) was created to assist ambitious green projects by companies and other organizations over the next decade, targeting areas essential to the circular economy, such as storage batteries, offshore wind power, next-generation solar cells, hydrogen, and carbon recycling.

Fidelity Japan Trust PLC (LON:FJV) aims to be the key investment of choice for those seeking Japanese companies exposure. The Trust has a ‘growth at reasonable price’ (GARP) investment style and approach – which involves identifying companies whose growth prospects are being under-appreciated or are not fully recognised by other investors.
