Launch of Japanese translation “Integrating Climate Change into Investment Strategy: A Guide for Investors” 気候変動を 投資戦略に組み入れる: 投資家向けガイド

11 April 2018

AIGCC is launching the Japanese translation of the “Integrating Climate Change into Investment Strategy: A Guide for Investors” at RI Asia in Tokyo today.

Asian investors can protect long-term returns by taking greater measures to manage climate risk. This is one of the key messages in a comprehensive climate change investor guide that is being launched in a Japanese translated version today at the RI Asia event in Tokyo by the Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC).

‘SumiTrust has been integrating climate change for many years and continues to be actively involved in local and international climate focused initiatives’, said Seiji Kawazoe, Associate General Manager at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, Ltd and AIGCC member. ‘We are proud to be involved in this guide and look forward to discussing it with our peers in Japan.’

“There is no one-size-fits-all approach to addressing climate change, which the investor guide clearly highlights,” said Arisa Kishigami, Head of ESG, Asia Pacific, FTSE Russell. “As a welcoming additional tool, the report balances common frameworks with a diverse range of specific case studies that investors can learn from and adapt to their individual needs. Arisa is also a Working Group member of AIGCC and Management committee member of Japan Sustainable Investment Forum (JSIF).

This guide is now available on the AIGCC website in Japanese, Chinese, and English.
