RI Tokyo 2020

Summary


RI Tokyo, formerly called RI Asia Japan, the leading sustainable finance conference attracted an audience of 650 in 2019. It is back to Tokyo Midtown Roppongi on 15th-16th April 2020. 

Since 2014, with the introduction of the Stewardship Code, a significant number of investors and companies have started using ESG and sustainability-related criteria such as the SDGs to enhance value creation. However, there is a perception amongst Japanese and global investors that although many Japanese companies are good at communicating tickbox ESG strategies, they are not as good at creating meaningful metrics around materiality and in developing longer term sustainability plans. The RI Tokyo 2020 conference will highlight financial risks linked to sustainability that are especially significant for Japan and the region. It will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss practical solutions to close the expectations gap between investors and their portfolio companies. 

RI Tokyo 2020 is an opportunity for all financial professionals to explore, discuss and learn about different global perspectives towards the rapidly developing sustainable business arena. Through high-profile keynotes, thought-provoking plenaries, and breakout sessions, the conference will provide a deeper and more practical knowledge of sustainability and sustainable finance.
