Japan plays a major role not only as an industrialized country, but also on an institutional level. It took over the presidency of the G7 this year, is currently one of the 10 non-permanent members of the UN Security Council and will assume the G20 presidency in 2017.

Schellnhuber gave some insights into the work of the institute and the latest findings of climate science. He also introduced PIK´s energy efficient new research building and its high-performance computer. The discussions covered a whole range of issues of the future – from energy policies and the use of nuclear energy to electric mobility and possible scientific co-operations. The Ambassador and his delegation showed great interest in an exchange and invited Schellnhuber to a return visit to Japan later this year.
