FISCO IR to Give a Presentation at the “Trial for Promoting Dialogue between Companies and Investors Using ESG Information” Investor Seminar

FISCO IR Ltd. is to participate in the “Trial for Promoting Dialogue between Companies and Investors Using ESG Information” seminar for investors under the “Environmental Reporting Platform Development Pilot Project” held by the Ministry of the Environment. The Company’s director and COO Hiroki Nakagawa will give the keynote address and join a panel discussion on the theme of “Considering the effectiveness of a trial promoting dialogue.”

This project, managed by the Ministry of the Environment, will develop a disclosure platform for handling primarily environmental information as well as information on ESG fields as a social system for companies engaging seriously on the environment to receive an appropriate evaluation from the market. It will resolve the current difficulties faced by many investors in efficiently and effectively obtaining ESG information from CSR reports and other media, which persist despite the publication of environmental information by around 60% of listed Japanese companies. It will also help investors to minimize their exposure to future risks and to ensure stability in financial markets and the Japanese economy. FISCO IR agrees with the project’s objectives and has been involved since its inception. Providing expertise accumulated through its support of IR practice for around 500 listed companies and understanding of investor psychology, the Company will support the development of a disclosure platform that benefits both companies and investors, thereby contributing to financial and capital markets in Japan.
