GES is pleased to invite you to a webinar on 13 February 2018, at 11:00 AM CET to present GES’ Japan Stewardship Engagement.
Japan has the third largest economy in the world and its stock markets account for about 8% of global equities, the second largest after US markets. However, Japanese corporates face challenges from a sustainability perspective. They are not as conspicuous as issues of poor return on equity or low board independence, yet companies must properly address these less obvious challenges. The Japan Corporate Governance Code was introduced to promote the sustainable growth of Japanese corporates. The period of superficial compliance should now be over, and investors need to ensure that companies are implementing measures necessary to achieve sustainable growth. Investors are the key stakeholder, with a strong interest in encouraging companies to make progress.
– Yoshi Maeda, Head of Responsible Investment, Governance for Owners Japan
The webinar will include a 30-minute presentation, followed by a Q&A session. Webinar recording will be made available to registrants upon request.
