In October 2020, Prime Minister Suga declared that by 2050, Japan will be carbon-free. Attaining Japan’s sustainable future will depend on making many critical decisions: Which technological innovations are the most important for a more sustainable materials, energy, and environmental sector? What elements of policy and regulation are crucial to the success of a sustainable future? Which is better equipped to implement these policies: government or industry? What is the business of sustainability - when does it make sense to implement these policies, when does it not, and how can you / should you make a profit from sustainability programs?
This special two-part webinar series for Japanese ILP members will explore how MIT and its community of researchers and startups companies are leading the way in sustainability research. Also joining us during these webinars will be special guests, Japanese ILP members MITSUI MINING & SMELTING CO., LTD. and Ajinomoto Inc., who will share insights from their corporate sustainability programs. This webinar will be broadcast in the Japanese language, and will feature live Q&A with our faculty and Japanese corporate speakers.
This webinar will be conducted in Japanese as a primary language but English is available by selecting the language. Participation of members from other countries, especially Asian countries, is also welcome.
This event is for ILP members and the MIT community. You can confirm your company's ILP membership here: https://ilp.mit.edu/search/members.
