Under the IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario, by 2030, methane emissions are around 70% lower than in 2020. The role of AD in abating this potent greenhouse gas as part of a renewable energy future will be addressed by Mr Sadamori.

Previously, he held the post of Deputy Director General for Policy Co-ordination at the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in Japan. He had been involved with the IEA for a number of years as IEA Governing Board Representative for Japan and as Co-Chair of the Standing Group on Long Term Co-operation. Over the years, Mr Sadamori has served in the Cabinet of the Prime Minister of Japan and has co-ordinated numerous important projects, including work following the Fukushima-Daiichi accident in March 2011. Keisuke Sadamori will continue serving as acting Deputy Executive Director until Former US Ambassador Mary Burce Warlick assumes the role.
