Yokohama has been developing as a port town, and the fishery was used to be a vital industry. Yokohama city was selected as “SDGs Future City” that is part of the “SDGs Action Plan” in 2018 led by the Japanese government. Yokohama city is now working on “the Yokohama Blue Carbon Project,” which includes “Blue Caron” and “Blue Resource.”
Blue Carbon is a type of carbon credit that is stored in coastal and marine ecosystems.
Blue Resource is another type of carbon credit that effectively uses resources in coastal and marine environments. This project is the first-ever verified carbon offset.
