Problem and its background
Today, the impacts of climate change, including damage caused by heat wave and flooding around the world, can be seen more often in our daily lives. As a result of the Paris Agreement in 2015, companies are becoming increasingly required to accurately assess the risks of climate change to their management, implement measures, and disclose information to the society, including financial institutes, investors, and other stakeholders. At the same time, there has been a trend toward new business opportunities, such as the provision of services related to adaptation measures in the private sectors. In the second half of this century, we are seeking to create a society with zero emissions of Greenhouse Gasses (GHGs), and looking for a paradigm shift to a decarbonized society through innovation. As a result, the way countries and corporate act, and our life-style are changing dramatically.
ツ While looking ahead to global trends, JANUS provides support services for climate-change mitigation measures and adaptation measures promoted by national governments, municipalities, and companies, mainly in the following areas.
- International Trends, Technical Systems, and Technology Survey on Climate Change Measures
- Study on feasibility of Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)
