Climate Neutral Sustainable Societies

Challenges for the research community


ABOUTWhat is LCS-RNet?

The Strategic Research Network for Leveraging Climate Neutral Sustainable Societies (LCS-RNet) is a network of researchers and research institutions closely involved in national climate policies. LCS-RNet was established from a Japanese proposal at the 2008 G8 Environment Ministers’ Meeting. (In 2021, the network was renamed from its original name, the International Research Network for Low Carbon Societies).
The network is led by research institutes from five countries (Japan, Germany, France, Italy and the UK) and has contributed to international policy processes by sharing and disseminating research results, providing feedback to national policy processes, and supporting efforts by various actors to realise a climate-neutral society.
