    Abstract This study analyses the drivers behind the policy-making and implementation of the recently developed climate policies in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG). In 2010, the TMG introduced a mandatory CO2 emission reduction and a cap-and-trade scheme; the world's first such scheme that sets binding targets for buildings. The research was carried out through reviews of the published and unpublished literature, surveys and face-to-face interviews with various stakeholders involved in the policy process. The essential components that enabled successful policy-making and implementation of the scheme in Tokyo are revealed, such as the administrative leadership and the capacity of the TMG administration, the availability of historical data supporting the policy discussions and the gradual and flexible implementation mechanisms. The article concludes with recommendations for future improvements in the TMG and beyond.
