Webinar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) Implementation in Chile – Innovation for Carbon Neutrality through the JCM –

Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) and the Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) in collaboration with Government of Chile and Nippon Koei Co., Ltd. will jointly organize “Webinar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM*1) Implementation in Chile – Innovation for Carbon Neutrality through JCM -” on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022.

Government of Japan is promoting dissemination of advanced decarbonizing technologies through the Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects*2. The webinar will be participated by government officials and business leaders from both countries, and it aims at sharing overview and progress of JCM and facilitating project development and scaling up those future projects.

Furthermore, as countries around the world aim to be carbon-neutral, innovation is the key to realizing a decarbonized society, in addition to thorough energy conservation and the introduction of renewable energy.

This webinar will introduce “Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects”, “Financing Programme to Demonstrate Decarbonization Technology for Realizing Co-Innovation”*3 and “Pilot Project for Comprehensive Support throughout the Whole Hydrogen Supply Chain Abroad”*4 started this fiscal year as well as good examples of each project. Through these, the path to a post-corona decarbonized society in Chile will be explored.

Related to the webinar, GEC will have individual consultation with companies considering applying for JCM Financing Programme. Also, individual meetings will be arranged between registrants of the webinar. Reservation is available through a match-making online platform “JCM Global Match”.

Registration 

 Registration for Webinar (Free of charge)
 Registration for Business matching / JCM Global Match (Free of charge)

 The webinar and the business matching need to be registered separately.

 *1 JCM stands for the Joint Crediting Mechanism, and it is a bilateral cooperation mechanism that developing countries and Japan collaborate
   on GHG emission reductions projects and share the reduction result.
   For further information, please refer to the official website of JCM

 *2 In order to support the implementation of candidate JCM projects, Ministry of the Environment, Japan has launched the “JCM Model Projects”.
   The purpose of this model project is to financially support the implementation of projects which reduce GHG emissions by utilizing leading
   decarbonizing technologies in developing countries, and in return seeks to acquire JCM credits for achievement of Japan’s GHG emission
   reduction target.

 *3 “Financing Programme to Demonstrate Decarbonization Technology for Realizing Co-Innovation” aims to create innovation beneficial for both
   Japan and developing countries through collaboration (co-innovation). The purpose of this financing program is creating a zero-carbon
   society through renovation and dissemination of high quality decarbonizing technologies and products, which are some of Japan’s strength,
   by means of systemization and packaging of multiple technologies, and by encouraging uptake of such technologies, in addition to bringing
   benefits to the technology developers in Japan as a result.

 *4 “Pilot Project for Comprehensive Support throughout the Whole Hydrogen Supply Chain Abroad” will subsidize a part of the demonstration project
   to produce hydrogen derived from renewable energy in third party countries where renewable energy is abundant such as
   solar power generation and wind power generation and to transport and utilize in partner countries (such as Pacific Island countries).
