Japan's Bushu Gas pens gas carbon neutralisation pacts
Japanese utility Bushu Gas has entered into separate agreements on the carbon neutralisation of gas with energy company Inpex and industrial waste processor Tsuneishi Kamtecs, the companies said on May 16 in a joint statement.
Through these agreements, Bushu Gas will purchase carbon-neutral gas from Inpex and replace the natural gas it supplies to the Saitama factory of Tsuneishi Kamtecs with carbon-neutral gas.
Tsuneishi Kamtecs will reduce its environmental footprint and build a circular economy to promote the sustainable development goals by replacing the natural gas it uses at its Saitama factory with carbon-neutral gas, the companies said.
The neutrality of the natural gas is based on carbon credits certified by a credible certifier as deriving from CO2 reduction efforts at global forest conservation projects, etc. based around the world where greenhouse gas emissions have been offset throughout the entire value chain process from development to combustion.
