Solutions to the issue of climate change, an urgent challenge for global society, require the creation of discontinuous innovations for environmental and energy technologies. In this context, at the Green Innovation Summit held in October 2019, Prime Minister ABE Shinzo stated that Japan will inaugurate an international joint research base for zero emission technologies, as a hub of aggregated knowledge from all over the world.

In response, AIST has established the Global Zero Emission Research Center (GZR) on January 29, 2020. Jointly with leading national research institutes and other famous organizations mainly in G20 member countries, GZR will conduct research for innovative environmental and energy technologies, including in the fields of renewable energy, storage batteries, hydrogen, separating and utilizing carbon dioxide, and artificial photosynthesis.
