- This event has passed.
Dear members and friends,
The BLCCJ, together with the Luxembourg Embassy and Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office Tokyo, are honored to invite you to the following webinar with FinCity.Tokyo Chairman Hiroshi Nakaso and LuxFLAG Chairwoman Denise Voss:
Leveraging Green Towards a Profitable and Sustainable Business
Managing Assets with ESG in Japan and Luxembourg
As Japan’s Prime Minister announced ambitious targets of carbon neutrality by 2050 and a 46% reduction of the country’s carbon footprint by 2030, corporate Japan has stepped up its active stance in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters to catch up with their peers in Europe and the United States. Beyond the obvious reasons of social responsibility, companies across the world realize the positive financial outcomes of ESG investing: efforts in sustainability lead to actual business success and there is growing evidence that ESG-themed strategies boost returns.
But how can one invest profitably in Green and ESG-conscious companies?
After a welcome by H.E. Luxembourg Ambassador Pierre Ferring, our first speaker, Mr. Hiroshi NAKASO, Chairman of FinCity.Tokyo and formerly Deputy Governor of the Bank of Japan, will present how Japan emphasizes asset management and the introduction of innovative strategies to make Tokyo a leading global financial city, and moreover how ESG fits in this picture.
Our second speaker Ms. Denise VOSS, Chairwoman of LuxFLAG, the Luxembourg Finance Labelling Agency, will share the agency’s definition of Green and ESG, the approach/criteria to label ESG funds, how this labeling contributes to the growth of Luxembourg companies, and how Green in general can be profitable for your business.
Afterwards the speakers will gladly take your questions.
