The fall of Japan's GHGs

Japan’s greenhouse gas emissions dropped by 2.5% to a record low through March 2023,helped by reduced emissions in the industrial and service sectors.
Emissions for the 2022/23 year fell to the equivalent of 1.135 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide from 1.164 billion tons a year earlier.
Renewable energy accounted for 21.7% of the 1.01 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity generated in 2022/23, up 1.4% point on the previous year.
Nuclear energy fell 1.3% points to 5.5%, while thermal power made up 72.8%, flat from a year earlier.

            It's good news that Japan's greenhouse gas emissions are decreasing. However, they still rely a lot on thermal power, so there's more work to be done to make energy production cleaner.

              We need to decarbonize green gas emissions, this is a huge milestone for Japan! It is possible and we can do it

                @saustine_lusanzu switching from the use of fossil fuels and focusing on renewable energy is key.
