GSG-NAB Japan is engaged in a variety of activities to promote impact investing in Japan. Our activities revolve around three pillars: research and publication, awareness-raising, and networking.
GSG-NAB Japan generates knowledge on impact investing through publications of reports/proposals, as well as translation of overseas reports on impact investing. It also initiates stakeholder-specific workshops or working groups to foster discussions and deepen understanding on impact investing among key stakeholders.
Annually publishes “The Current State of Impact Investing in Japan,” a research report on the size and status of the domestic impact investing market.
Publishes “Proposal for the Expansion of Impact Investing,” a report that outlines issues and recommendations including action plans, to further promote impact investing in Japan.
Translates materials including the latest research reports and literatures published by overseas network organizations.
GSG-NAB Japan hosts and/or co-hosts stakeholder-specific workshops. Together with the Financial Services Agency, since June 2020, we’ve been co-hosting “Impact Investing Roundtable,” a workshop for financial market stakeholders and government officials to discuss significance and issues in promoting impact investing in Japan.Impact Investing Roundtable
