Climate Lobbying Overview: Japan Chemical Industry Association (JCIA) seems to have some engagement with climate and energy policy in Japan.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: JCIA have supported the 2050 carbon neutrality goal, but appear to emphasize the need for climate solutions and pathways that heavily rely on technology to reduce emissions from GHG-intense energy sources in the long-term, as stated in their position paper from 2021.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: JCIA appear to support some forms of government regulation to provide equal footing for countries, however have suggested the need to review the climate change mitigation tax system as stated in its 2021 Annual Review. Previously in 2016, JCIA had suggested the review of the climate change mitigation tax with the possibility of abolishing it, in its demand paper submitted to the government. In 2021, at a METI committee meeting regarding economic measures for achieving carbon neutrality, JCIA suggested that any discussion on carbon tax implementation was premature. In 2021, JCIA appear to be supporting GHG emission reductions in their own activities, although it is unclear if they support GHG emission standards.

Positioning on Energy Transition: At a METI committee meeting held in 2021, JCIA appear to support decarbonization of energy sources including clean hydrogen. However at a series of METI committee meeting held in 2020, JCIA advocated for continued use of fossil fuel power supply within its sector, suggesting the transition of energy would be unaffordable.

Industry Association Governance: JCIA appears to have disclosed its board and company memberships. JCIA has disclosed positions on some specific climate change policies but without detail on any activities undertaken to influence these policies.
