Hiroshima Green Ocean Project
While seizing the current global trends of carbon neutrality and the SDGs, and by strengthening environmental and energy-related industries*, this project will consistently create businesses in Hiroshima Prefecture which contribute to solving global environmental issues.
*Fields in which the products or services supplied contribute directly or indirectly to environmental conservation and resource management, and help achieve a sustainable society
Why is Hiroshima Prefecture working in the environmental and energy-related fields?
As the first place attacked by an atomic bomb in human history, Hiroshima Prefecture shows that with a commitment to peace, reconstruction and growth are possible.
We are working to create an environment where diverse actors such as corporations and NGOs can play their roles and do business in a peaceful global environment with confidence.
In this context, we will utilize Hiroshima’s symbolism, and while constructing a mechanism to foster the independent creation of peace initiatives, envision a world where the economy and environment are mutually supportive. Hiroshima’s mission is to contribute to creating a better world by promoting the environmental and energy-related fields in order to achieve a sustainable society.
Thoughts embraced in Hiroshima Ocean Project
We aim to realize a sustainable society by creating a new market (Green Ocean) that can simultaneously promote environmental contributions and achieve economic growth.
While Green Ocean will start in Hiroshima Prefecture, we plan to expand it worldwide.

Hiroshima Environmental Business Promotion Council
The Council was established by Hiroshima Prefecture in April 2012 as the body for carrying out the activities of the Hiroshima Green Ocean Project.
The Council aims to vitalize inter-corporation collaboration and promote overseas expansion, and by doing so,
to cultivate a group of corporations that can develop businesses that contribute to the achievement of a sustainable society on a global scale.
If your corporation is interested in expanding your business overseas or creating new business in the environmental and energy-related fields, please join our Council.
Creation of new business
through collaboration between industry, academia, and government
Business community (Scrum Hiroshima)
Our community aims to create new business opportunities in the environmental and energy sectors. We organize various events, including networking and seminars, with professionals from diverse industries, beyond the boundaries of member companies and organizations.
New business creation program
This program aims to create new businesses in the environmental and energy sectors. We collaborate with experts in new business development and external startups to provide hands-on support. Our goal of this program is to develop and demonstrate businesses that can be funded by public subsidies or venture capital in 2024.
This is a subsidy program that covers some of the costs for new business projects in the development and demonstration stage. It provides financial assistance for new business development in the environmental and energy sectors, as well as for some of the costs associated with pre-market testing.
Collaboration with overseas startups
This program supports creation of new businesses in the environmental and energy sectors abroad through collaboration with overseas startups, universities and research institutions that are tackling environmental issues.
Collaboration with overseas municipalities, etc.
Through collaboration with cities and organizations overseas with which Hiroshima Prefecture has entered into economic agreements in the environmental and energy sectors, this program supports the creation of new business opportunities by collecting local needs, discovering potential customers and partners, and offering assistance in generating new projects.
