Panel Session at the PPI Roundtable


Jamie Allen, Secretary General, spoke in a virtual panel session titled “Enhancing Climate Risk Disclosures: Japan and the Rest of Asia” at the PPI Roundtable hosted by the Pacific Pension & Investment Institute (PPI) on 28 October 2021.

Topics discussed included:

  • Considering Japan’s pledge to become carbon-neutral by 2050, how are institutional investors engaging companies in Japan on climate and sustainability issues?
  • Why have prominent companies thrown their support behind climate risk disclosure, particularly through the adoption of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework?
  • How might climate risk reporting impact their business models and strategic plans?
  • How might Japan’s approach serve as a template for other countries in Asia and the rest of the world?
