Sustainable Resource Management in Tokyo

Overview

As designated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Tokyo Environmental Public Service Corporation assumes the role of serving as the secretariat for international affairs about sustainable resource management. It is anticipated that major cities across Asia and other regions will confront significant environmental challenges and heightened energy consumption due to rapid economic expansion. Tokyo endeavors to address these challenges by offering technical support aimed at resolving sustainability issues encountered by urban centers. Concurrently, Tokyo aims to contribute to global environmental initiatives, such as mitigating greenhouse gas emissions associated with resource utilization, through collaboration with cities worldwide. Furthermore, we actively foster the growth of businesses possessing advanced technologies relevant to sustainable resource management within Tokyo, with a particular emphasis on major urban centers in Asia.
