As part of a carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction initiative by the Ministry of Environment Japan, Oracle Corporation Japan and Jyukankyo Research Institute Inc. provided approximately 300,000 households with personalized information and advice to reduce their energy use and carbon emissions over four years. The program resulted in average 2% reduction in energy consumption and a cumulative reduction of 47,000 tons of CO2.
It has been confirmed that the energy saving effect continues even a year after the delivery of the reports was suspended, and it is estimated that the cumulative CO2 reduction will reach 111,000 tons in the future, which is the equivalent of 41,000 households’ CO2 emission for a year or replacing roughly 135,000 refrigerators with more efficient models. Along with these achievements, these household decarbonization efforts are contributing towards Japan’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas by 46% by 2030.
