Sustainable Finance

Constructing a sustainable society is a major challenge of our society today. The adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement and other important milestones has shown that it is essential to promote sustainable finance, which encourages the society to transit to new industrial and social structures and realizes a sustainable society.

In December 2020, the Financial Services Agency, Japan (FSA) established its Expert Panel on Sustainable Finance and has discussed various measures to promote sustainable finance. The Expert Panel positioned sustainable finance as "an infrastructure supporting sustainable economic and social system". Based on these discussions, the FSA is working on measures to promote sustainable finance; Enhancing Corporate Disclosure, Capital Market Functions, and the Role of Financial Institutions.
