Kawasaki City was once beset by serious pollution. However, the advanced environmental technology, energy efficiency and other skills it has acquired in the process of eliminating that pollution are now the city’s greatest assets. Today, throughcooperation with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and industrial interaction with cities abroad, Kawasaki City is using the transfer of environmental technology to Asia to contribute to the global community. The city of Kawasaki announced its Carbon Challenge Kawasaki Eco-Strategy (CC Kawasaki) in February 2008 to promote a harmonious integration of the environment and economy, and create a sustainable community on a global scale. Contributing to the global community in the area of environmental issues is one of the key features in that strategy. The city is committed to continuing its contribution to the global community through environmental technology as “a model natural resource and energy efficient industrial city with a low carbon emissions”.
