Low-Carbon Technology Innovation

Financing Programme to Demonstrate Decarbonization Technology for Realizing Co-Innovation


Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) is promoting the development of decarbonizing technologies (including low-carbon technologies; the same applies hereinafter). On behalf of the MOEJ, GEC has been implementing the financing programme to demonstrate decarbonization technology for realizing co-innovation since 2019.

Purpose & characteristics of this financing programme

  • This financing programme aims to contribute to global environmental conservation by promoting renovation and demonstration of advanced decarbonization technologies to adapt to local specific circumstances of developing countries. Such renovation is expected to address environmental regulations, culture and customs, resource restrictions and the climate in each country.
  • These projects must contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions from energy consumption. After the project is completed, the recipient of the financial support is required to calculate and report the emission reductions of the project to the MOEJ.
