NEDO, a governmental funding agency for research and development projects in Japan, strives to address energy and global environmental problems, as well as enhancing industrial technology. Climate change and marine plastic litter are global grave issues these days. Technologies, such as 3R (reuse, reduce, recycle), biomass utilization and photovoltaics, can contribute to tackle the issues. In this session, NEDO presents three essential social systems (ESS), namely, Circular Economy, Bio-Economy and Sustainable Energy to create a sustainable society through innovation. It is indispensable for the ecosystem with less burdens on global environment and living nature to optimally harmonize the ESS.
