Tokyo aims for zero greenhouse-gas emissions

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has released a basic strategy to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 100 percent by 2050.

According to the" Zero Emission Tokyo Strategy", Japan's capital will produce renewable energy from solar power and other sources to replace fossil fuels.

The plan calls for converting all vehicles in Tokyo to use electricity and fuel cells, and for all buildings in the capital to be self-sufficient using renewable energy.

Tokyo will step up efforts to reduce and recycle plastic, in order to drastically change the way people use resources that consume large amounts of energy.

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said that she will call on all Tokyo residents to cooperate and fight the climate crisis together.
