India and Japan to explore strengthening bilateral cooperation on the circular economy, resource efficiency, low carbon technology and green hydrogen

Union Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Shri Bhupender Yadav, held a bilateral meeting with H.E. Mr Akihiro Nishimura, Minister of the Environment, Japan, today in New Delhi. In the meeting, both leaders discussed a range of issues including G7/G20 collaboration, LiFE, Marine & Plastic Waste, COP-27 and CBD 15.

Speaking on this occasion Shri Bhupender Yadav said that it is a coincidence that both Japan and India have taken over the Presidencies of the G7 and G20 respectively and this presents an opportunity for both countries to set the agendas and priorities for shaping the future of the world towards “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or “One Earth · One Family · One Future”, which also is the theme of India’s G20 Presidency.  Shri Yadav further added that during India’s G-20 Presidency, LiFE is one of the important priorities for all the working groups cutting across many ministries and departments. He also sought support from Japan for India’s G-20 Presidency, and also assured India’s support for Japan’s G-7 Presidency.

The Minister acknowledged and appreciated the efforts made by Japan in bringing new technologies to India. He stressed that India and Japan may explore strengthening bilateral cooperation, especially on circular economy and resource efficiency, low carbon technology, and green hydrogen among others.

Addressing the 1st India – Japan Environment week Shri Yadav stated that to build a better world and a better future leaving no one behind, we should promote just and equitable growth for all in the world, in a sustainable, holistic, responsible, and inclusive manner.
