Carbon neutral solutions

The PwC Japan Group's Carbon Neutral Solutions Group is a cross-organisational group of professionals with experience in the renewable energy, decarbonisation-focused business management, accounting and tax fields.

These days, more and more countries throughout the world are working to mitigate climate change by becoming carbon neutral. Japan has also set a target of becoming carbon neutral by 2050. To achieve this target, companies have moved away from conventional ways of thinking, and are starting to take active measures that see the fight against climate change as an opportunity for growth. But to improve their energy efficiency and increase their renewable energy use, businesses need to drastically change their business models and strategies. We believe that building a renewables-based energy system is an important challenge for society—not only for the sake of mitigating climate change but also to reduce our consumption of fossil fuels, which are a limited resource.

The PwC Japan Group can support your sustainable business growth by providing various services to help you use renewable energy, implement decarbonisation-focused business management and develop disclosure strategies.
