J-Credit scheme support

We offer support from project development to credit sales with the J-Credit scheme.

About J-Credit scheme

Under the J-Credit Scheme, the government certifies the amount of greenhouse gas emissions such as CO2 reduced or removed by sinks as “credits”. This can be done through, for example, introducing energy-saving devices or managing forests etc. This scheme is managed and administered by the Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries under the name “J-Credit Scheme”. By registering your energy-saving / renewable energy business under this scheme and going through various procedures needed, the amount of CO2 emission reduction will be certified as “credits”. The credits created under the scheme can be used for various purposes, such as achieving the targets of the Keidanren’s Commitment to a Low Carbon Society, and carbon offset etc. Please see J-Credit Scheme website for further information.

Our achievements

To date, we have a track record of creating J-Credits related to energy conservation and renewable energy in project based and in programmatic based projects. Questions such as “Can I register for the J-Credit scheme in this case?”, “How much credits can be created with a certain CO2 emission reductions?” can be consulted.
