TOKYO (AP) — Japan says it will raise its greenhouse gas emissions reduction target to 46% on 2013 levels from 26%, NHK television reported.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has set a goal to achieve carbon neutrality in Japan by 2050.

Suga on Thursday announced a new target of 46% in emissions reduction by 2030, up from the current 26% from the 2013 levels, NHK said.

The decision comes hours before a virtual climate summit later Thursday hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden.
