Jun. 20, 2018 JPX Establishment of Sustainability Committee


Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (JPX) will establish a Sustainability Committee that directly reports to Akira Kiyota, Group CEO, on July 1, 2018.

In recent years, ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investment has increasingly grown in importance. In Japan and overseas, there is a particular growing interest in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a collection of 17 goals regrading global issues in terms of the economy, society, and environment. ESG investment is drawing attention as an effective tool to address these issues.

JPX joined the Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative in December 2017 and will be proactively engaged in spreading ESG investment in Japan through measures such as the initiatives included in the "Update of 2nd Medium-Term Management Plan (FY2018)", which was published on April 27, 2018.

The Sustainability Committee will promote these activities on a group-wide basis. Through these efforts, we hope to contribute to the spread of ESG investment and the establishment of a sustainable society in collaboration with domestic and foreign public institutions, investors, listed companies, market participants, and other stakeholders.
