The world is now facing the twin major crises of the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis. In the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis, those of us alive today bear a responsibility to evolve Tokyo, through sustainable recovery, into a city where people can always live with peace of mind and happiness, rather than just restoring it to its previous state.
Now is the time to act to overcome the crises facing us and accelerate actions to stand against the climate crisis for the future. By clearly acknowledging the threat of the ever-increasing climate crisis, we will develop the climate action movement from Tokyo in the spirit of the “TIME TO ACT” slogan.
Tokyo will take the leadership in decarbonizing the world through concrete measures and in collaboration with international networks, businesses, and NGOs.
Governor of Tokyo
