Japan Plans to Sign Emissions-Offset Agreement With Thailand

(Bloomberg) — Japan plans to sign an agreement with
Thailand as part of a program to offset its emissions in
exchange for clean-energy and energy-saving technologies.

The two countries plan to hold a signing ceremony in Tokyo
on Thursday, according to a document provided by the Ministry of
the Environment.

Japan has so far signed such an agreement with 15 other
countries since 2013. Mongolia was the first country to sign up
for the program, followed by Bangladesh and Ethiopia.
