Oct. 29, 2018 JPX JPX Expresses Support for TCFD


Today, JPX expressed its support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) under the Financial Stability Board (FSB).

TCFD, a private-sector-driven task force established in 2015 in response to a request from G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting, had deliberated on recommendations and reports regarding climate-related financial disclosure. In June 2017, TCFD released the final report whose aim is that individual financial institutions and business corporations will seize and disclose financial impacts of the risks and opportunities presented by climate change. As of September 2018, 513 entities around the world, including financial institutions, enterprises, governments, and international organizations, have shown their support for TCFD.

JPX has actively promoted ESG investment initiatives through such measures as formulating Japan's Corporate Governance Code, offering ESG-related indices and ETFs, launching an infrastructure fund market, and establishing an information platform for green and social bonds. As other relevant entities in Japan also promote initiatives for facilitating sustainability, JPX will be committed to continued promotion of ESG investment through its support for TCFD.
