Japan will help Southeast Asian countries track greenhouse gas emissions by setting up a measuring and monitoring framework for industries.

With many members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations lacking a tracking method, gauging emissions at individual companies has been difficult. The ability to monitor decarbonisation efforts across the supply chain has become increasingly important, Nikkei reported.

Japan plans to provide assistance and take part in joint projects.

In the Philippines, a field trial will begin next summer for calculating emissions industry by industry. The selection process has begun with the cooperation of the Environment Ministry and Chamber of Commerce, with the cement and waste management sectors among the candidates to participate.

Emissions calculations in the Philippines will likely be based on data including electricity and fossil-fuel consumption, as well as production volume. Methane from waste will be estimated.

The process of selecting candidate industries is also underway in Vietnam and Thailand.

The outlines of the initiative will be crafted within the month and announced at the COP 26 climate summit to be hosted by the UK, starting October 31./.
