>> ESG Working Group Report (Japanese Version)
Japan’s Stewardship Code formulated in February 2014 expresses the viewpoint that institutional investors should aim to raise the medium- to long-term value of the companies that they invest in, and one aspect of doing that was through governance over investment recipients, including risks related to social and environmental issues. In September 2015, the Government Pension Investment Fund, the world’s largest pension fund, became a signatory to the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment, sparking interest in our country in investment considering ESG information.
Taking this situation into account, FISCO IR is advancing the following initiatives to spread ESG investment in Japan in the belief that companies publicly listed in Japan and ESG information can provide an opportunity for dialogue between both institutional and individual investors.
FISCO IR supports the development of a valuable disclosure foundation for companies and investors, while continuing to contribute to domestic financial and capital markets by providing knowledge related to ESG investment acquired from participation in the ESG Working Group since its launch, in addition to its record and experience in providing IR assistance to about 500 listed companies and expertise in understanding investor psychology.
