MOEJ co-organized the workshop and symposium under G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency, "Resource Efficiency and Low-Carbon Society: Identifying Opportunities and Implications " with UNU-IAS and IGES on December 12th and 13th, 2016.
Based on the results of the G7 Toyama Environment Ministers' Meeting and G7 Ise-Shima Summit in May last year, this workshop and symposium was held under G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency, which was established at G7 Summit 2015 in Schloss Elmau. With the participation of the G7 and other country's governments, companies, research institutes, international organizations, etc., this meeting was held in order to promote information sharing, opinion exchange and networking among stakeholders in the area of a resource circulation system.

The workshop adopted the Co-Chair's summary as attached.

(Note)
Resource Efficiency was featured prominently in the leader's declaration of the G7 Elmau Summit in June 2015, leading to establishment of the G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency, a forum where various stakeholders including governments, businesses, research institutions and consumers come together to share knowledge about best practices and lessons learned. The G7 Alliance was mandated to organize a series of workshops on resource efficiency under the leadership of the respective presidency. Three G7 workshops on resource efficiency were organized last year under the presidency of Germany including the one co-hosted by the United Kingdom. We held a workshop on the theme of international cooperation in Yokohama under the Japanese presidency in February this year. Subsequently, US government also hosted a workshop on automobile supply chain with Japanese government in Washington D.C. in March.
