Oct. 14, 2021 JPX JPX to Establish "Sustainable Finance Platform Development Working Group"


As part of its Priorities for July 2021-June 2022, as published on August 31, the Japanese Financial Services Agency (FSA) noted the urgency of developing platforms to underpin the promotion of sustainable finance and announced its intention to progress further with this in collaboration with market players. The FSA's Sustainable Finance Expert Panel has also discussed the possibilities of an information platform and certification framework for green bonds and similar products.

With this background, Japan Exchange Group, Inc. has decided to establish a Working Group consisting of a varied range of related parties including issuers, institutional investors, and academics, to consider the practical issues around the creation of an information platform that collates a wide range of information on green bonds and similar products, alongside other related topics.
