15th German-Japanese Economic Forum

"Mission Net Zero: How will the German and Japanese industries succeed in the transformation?"

Industry is responsible for around 30% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Every company faces the challenge to reduce the CO2 footprint of the entire value chain and business activity. Many large companies, but also SMEs, have developed “net zero” strategies or technologies. However, switching to CO2-neutral and sustainable production is a major challenge for many industries.

What strategies do companies in Japan and Germany have to become climate-neutral by 2050 at the latest? Which technologies and political framework conditions are crucial in this context? And how can the key challenges of the transition process be turned into opportunities? Experts from German and Japanese industry and politics will discuss these issues at the 15th German-Japanese Business Forum at Hannover Messe.

The Forum is organized by Deutsche Messe in cooperation with ECOS Consult and the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Japan.
