Center for Low Carbon Society Strategy (LCS), Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST)
The Center for Low Carbon Society Strategy (LCS) with a view to constructing a sustainable low carbon society, tries to broadly lay out an image of such a society compatible with affluent life, and then realize it. In order to contribute to the realization of a low carbon society, LCS draws up the image of a desirable society and formulates scenarios indicating ways to attain its realization. It also considers comprehensive strategies for new technologies and necessary measures for social system design to accelerate the realization of this low carbon society. By utilizing the results of its studies, LCS aims at contributing to the creation of new industries and employment and also creating systems for a low carbon society capable of serving as an international model. LCS is a unique and autonomous research center within the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) which is one of the core institutions responsible for the implementation of science and technology policy in Japan. From knowledge creation—the wellspring of innovation—to ensuring that the fruits of research are shared with society and citizens, JST undertakes its mission in a comprehensive manner. JST also works to provide a sound infrastructure of science and technology information and raise awareness and understanding of science and technology-related issues in Japan.
