Tokyo—Unlocking Opportunities for Asia’s Green Finance

Webinar organized by FinCity.Tokyo,co-hosted by Reuters Plus

Monday, 22nd November, 2021, 18:00-19:00 (JST)

FinCity.Tokyo is pleased to announce “Tokyo—Unlocking Opportunities for Asia’s Green Finance,” a webinar that will delve into Japan’s strong green finance momentum and discuss how Tokyo can further boost its position as a green finance hub in Asia and globally. The event is co-hosted by Reuters Plus. Participation is free of charge.

Tokyo is emerging as a green finance powerhouse as Japan moves toward decarbonization by 2050. Green bond issuance in Japan is expected to rise to a fresh record by the end of this year. In Q1 2021 alone, the number of GSS (Green, Social & Sustainability) bonds sold was more than double that in Q1 2020. As Tokyo’s green finance market rapidly evolves, how does the city attract more foreign issuers and investors? And what can be done to further stimulate the momentum?

The panel discussion will bring together insightful perspectives from issuers, industry professionals, regulators, academia, as well as FinCity.Tokyo.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event.
