Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) held the COP26 side event titled “Building global supply chain of Green hydrogen to support the energy transition toward a decarbonised society” at the site in Glasgow, UK, on Thursday, November 11th, 2021.
Japan and its partner countries including Australia, and international organisations including Asian Development Bank, have been accelerating their efforts to promote the utilisation of hydrogen produced with renewable energy (Green hydrogen) on a global scale. In this regard, Japan and Australia have signed the "Japan-Australia Partnership on Decarbonisation through Technology" in June 2021 and have been accelerating their cooperation on green hydrogen to meet net-zero emission goals. In addition, the Ministry of the Environment Japan has also signed an agreement with the Asian Development Bank at the Environmental Policy Dialogue in June 2021 to cooperate in the hydrogen sector to create new markets for Green hydrogen.
At this side event, governmental agency, business leaders, and other stakeholders from Indo-Pacific countries shared their experiences and case studies, with an aim to contribute to the efforts towards building global supply chains of Green hydrogen, which will pave a path for Indo-Pacific region towards a carbon-neutral society.
The event was held as a hybrid meeting via Zoom.
