Description:

In January 2006, Japans Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) announced plans to avoid annual emissions of 21 MtCO2 in the transport sector by 2010 through various efficiency measures. 3 MtCO2 would be expected to be cut by improving road conditions in Japan to ease the flow of traffic. The remaining 18 Mt would be expected to be saved by improved fuel efficiency of vehicles, by means of usage of new energy sources and convincing drivers to turn off the engine when the car is not moving.

Annual emission of CO2 in transport sector was 240Mt in 2005, and was reduced to 225Mt in 2013.
