Japan eyeing 26% greenhouse gas cut: officials

People protest Japan's nuclear energy policy in Tokyo on April 25, 2015Japan is planning to pledge a 26 percent cut in its greenhouse gas emissions from 2013 levels, ahead of a global summit on climate change this year, officials said Friday. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will likely formally announce the target at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit in Germany in late June, local reports said. The pledge was immediately dubbed unambitious by environmental groups, with Tokyo-based campaigners Kiko Network pointing out that 26 percent cut from 2013 works out at just 17 percent cut from 1990 levels. The numbers come after Tokyo proposed this week a fifth of its electricity should come from nuclear power generation, despite widespread opposition in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster.
