The article analyzes the initiative put forward by the Prime-Minister of Japan Yukio Hatoyama in September 2009 pledging that Japan will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2020 from 1990 levels. The initiative has become an organic succession of Japan’s long-term strategy aimed at building a low carbon society. The perspective of the realization of the initiative will depend on the readiness of other countries to take their own responsibility for the emission cuts.
