Since 1990 (the base year for Kyoto Protocol commitments), carbon dioxide emissions in Japan have decreased in the industries sector, but surged in the commercial & other sector. At the national level, office buildings that financial institutions occupy or lease out account for a significant share of total emissions. We propose a plan to make financial institutions carbon neutral by 2020 using carbon offsets.
