Business idea in short

ECOLO−METRIKA is a cloud service that can centrally manage the connection with the greenhouse gas emission visualization / reduction simulation / emissions trading market to achieve GHG NET-ZERO.

Social issue to tackle | Business concept

We will create a society where everyone can fulfill their responsibility to pass on a rich ecosystem to the next generation by making the relationship between people and the earth positive. As a service aimed at curbing global warming, in the short term, based on the GHG protocol, we will create a state where the person in charge of the company can achieve the measurement-visualization-simulation up to SCOPE3 on their own. In the long term, we will provide one-stop tax advice and emissions trading mediation with a view to introducing domestic carbon tax and creating an emissions trading market, which are currently under discussion.

Motivation

Japan was once an opinion leader in environmental issues. However, he is content with his disgraceful position, such as receiving the fossil award at COP26 last year. We believe that Japan, which is the first in the world to welcome an aging society with a very low birth rate, should be able to propose a new way of development in a mature economy to the world.
