At SDG Impact Japan, we establish and manage SDG-aligned strategies. We ensure our investment strategies and the companies we invest in are aligned to the new UNDP SDG Impact Standards
New benchmark for ESG investing in public companies: NextGen ESG Japan Strategy
We are launching Asia’s next generation ESG investment strategy for public equities. This will be the first strategy in Asia to adhere to Article 9, the EU’s new leading standard for sustainable investment, and will be the new benchmark for green investing.
The NextGen ESG Japan strategy is powered by the award-winning Rubicon ESG investment engine, an approach that has consistently produced outsized returns. We implement a proprietary climate temperature change trajectory analysis for each company, projecting the future impact the company will have on the environment.
The investment process is bottom-up and engagement-centric. For each portfolio company we set individual KPIs linked to sustainability and business performance. And we always focus on companies that have the most potential for sustainability improvement and financial returns.
The strategy is managed by a team that combines world-leading finance professionals and global SDG thought leaders and practitioners.
Entrepreneurs and early-stage ventures:
We partner with venture capital firms and entrepreneurs that are fostering transformative solutions for a sustainable tomorrow – including addressing carbon emissions, alternatives to plastics, healthtech, and precision agriculture.
Sustainability analytics and advisory services:
We are partnering with a new state of the art web-based sustainability analytics platform to help funds, companies of all sizes, public institutions and NGOs improve, measure and report on their sustainability footprint.
We help align your business and investments to the SDGs. We advise you on policies, governance, and how to grow your business to maximize the value of sustainability.
