TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan is drafting an economic growth measure taking climate action into account and aims to release a preliminary estimate by the end of March, economy minister Daishiro Yamagiwa said on Monday.

Asked about so-called “Green GDP” in a parliament session, Yamagiwa also said, “The Cabinet Office has been working on it this fiscal year as a commissioned project, given trends in global society,” such as initiatives by the United Nations and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
