Japanese Makers Boosting Decarbonization Investments

Japanese Makers Boosting Decarbonization Investments

   Tokyo, July 20 (Jiji Press)--Japanese manufacturers are accelerating their decarbonization investments as the government aims to reduce the country's greenhouse gas emissions effectively to zero by 2050.
   On Tuesday, JFE Engineering Corp. announced a plan to build a plant to make base structures for offshore wind turbines in Kasaoka, Okayama Prefecture, western Japan.
   The new plant, the first of its kind in the country, will be built on the premises of the West Japan Works of affiliate JFE Steel Corp., with production slated to start in 2024.
   Total investments will reach 40 billion yen, including costs to expand an assembly factory.
   The move came after the government set out a target of raising the country's offshore wind power capacity to 30 million to 45 million kilowatts by 2040.
