ACGA Investor Delegation to Japan


The Japan Working Group (JWG), our forum for members with an interest or investments in Japan to discuss current CG developments, organised a delegation to Tokyo during February 26–March 2. The delegation was attended by 25 members. JWG members attended a meeting focused on electricity use and low carbon transition that was co-hosted by Boston Common Asset Management and the Growald Family Trust. Other meetings during the week saw members: presenting or attending the ICGN Conference on Integrated Reporting; visit nine companies for discussions with board members and investor relations representatives; engage with the Keidanren (picture below) and regulatory agencies, the Financial Services Agency, the Tokyo Stock Exchange and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry; and meet with members of the newly-formed investor-led collective – IICEF.
