The JCIA's stance on a strong climate treaty appears tempered with economic concerns. Current JCIA Chairman Yoshimitsu Kobayashi appears to appreciate the need for drastic action and a reduction in Japan's fossil fuel dependency. They appear to have advocated to policy makers to oppose. They appear to be aligned with the ICCA, the international chemicals trade body on COP21 positioning, and very closely with the Japan Business Federation on legislative strands like carbon tax and emissions trading, which they appear to have advocated to policy makers to oppose. In 2012, they appear to have opposed to the Japanese government’s renewable energy plan, emphasizing the existence of technical, economic and social obstacles in achieving the government’s goal.
