Summary of Results of the Launch Event for
Japan’s Impact Consortium

 As the importance of environmental and social issues such as climate change and the declining birthrate and aging population increases, the support for businesses that contribute to resolving these issues has become an urgent task.
 In particular, it is important to realize a positive feedback loop that links the creation of environmental or social impact to economic and social growth and sustainability. A wide-ranging collaboration is expected among industry, government, academia, and financial institutions.
 In this context, "Japan’s Impact Consortium" was launched as an interactive communication platform where impact-driven stakeholders could join in and share their expertise and experiences. The Consortium aims to support various initiatives to realize impact through business and to develop impact investment into an established approach and market. The launch event (publicly open with live stream) was held on Tuesday, November 28 (JST).

 Founding members, relevant organizations, and relevant ministries and agencies (Cabinet Secretariat, Financial Services Agency, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and Ministry of the Environment) attended this event, which was streamed online.
