Kawasaki City will be holding the 20th Kawasaki International Eco-Business Forum!

The Kawasaki Environment Research Institute hosts the Kawasaki International Eco-Business Forum as an occasion to exchange and disseminate information on cutting-edge decarbonization technologies developed by companies in Kawasaki City and decarbonization initiatives in and outside of Japan, among other such topics.

Taking this 20th milestone as an opportunity to reexamine Kawasaki’s current position and consider whether it can maintain its competitiveness in the environmental business in the next era, this year’s forum will focus on the transition to decarbonized management, which began in Kawasaki. From the financial perspective with regard to large companies and SMEs that shape Kawasaki’s industries, we will hold a panel discussion to shed light on issues and strategies for coming out on top in this major transition period.

The forum will be part of the first day’s events at the 16th Kawasaki International Eco-Tech Fair, which will be held at the same venue. Participation is free, so please feel free to join us.
