Reuters reveals Japan pushes to remove zero-emission vehicle target from G7 statement

Reuters was first to report that Japan is pushing to remove a target for zero-emission vehicles from a G7 communique expected this week, a move that would water down language on climate change from the leaders’ summit in Germany. The pressure from Tokyo, an influential member of the Group of Seven rich nations, comes as the Japanese auto industry has faced scrutiny from green investors who say it has been slow to embrace zero-emission vehicles and lobbied against regulations that would encourage quicker transition to the technology.
