Seminar
Energy Business Towards a Decarbonized Society - The Role of Financial Institutions and Corporates

14 February 2017

Renewable Energy Institute and Bloomberg New Energy Finance jointly organized a seminar on Tuesday 14 February.

As the new international framework for climate change “Paris Agreement” has come into effect, withdrawal from coal-related business is progressing rapidly around the world. Meanwhile, the amount of investment in renewable energy hit a record high, its capacity has increased and the cost has drastically decreased. Under these circumstances, the Financial Stability Board established the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), which published a report containing proposals on corporate climate-related financial risk disclosure information.

In this seminar, an overview of the TCFD report was given in the first session, followed by a discussion on how financial institutions in Japan will utilize corporates’ financial information related to climate change risk. The second session addressed the global trend on how corporates are shifting to renewables. Financial institutions and corporates were invited to discuss future prospects and challenges in Japan.
