For the Future Environment of Yokohama

Last updated date:2021/9/2

Since the period of rapid economic growth after World WarⅡ, Yokohama has continued to tackle the serious issues of pollution.
In our world today, we are facing new environmental issues such as climate change, the natural disasters that accompany it, loss in biodiversity and more.
To handle these problems and pass on our invaluable environment to future generations, we have formulated a comprehensive environmental plan, the “Yokohama Environmental Management Plan”. In this plan, we have put 3 cross-sectional perspectives, “Citizens/Local Communities”, ”Economy”, ”Town Development”, and are working our policies in close coordination.
