The forum hosted by Tokyo, Japan, and sponsored by the Climate Change Leadership Group (C40) invited about 200 mayors, public officers, and experts from about 20 cities around the world.
Under the topic, ‘for cleaner cities and clear skies,’ the forum involved presentations on the common issue of effective waste control and air quality control, and adopted the Tokyo Protocols.
The City particularly introduced its public bicycle and electric car project in relation to the ‘hydrogen fuel cell car project,’ and suggested the vision to achieve sustainable objectives by making hydrogen vehicles more popular and transforming the city into an environmentally-friendly city with advanced hydrogen industries.
The City also participated in the Asia/Oceania regional conference of the Urban Climate Leadership Group (C40) to discuss the reduction of greenhouse gases under the Paris Climate Change Accord and the policies of regional member cities.
