About Us

Figure of the composition of the consortium

Purpose and background of establishment

As climate change, aging population and other social or environmental issues become urgent, supporting companies that aim to generate impact and business value is increasingly essential.
The JFSA, with public-private collaboration, launched Japan’s Impact Consortium in November 2023, as an interactive-communication platform where impact-driven stakeholders could join in and share their expertise and experiences.
The Consortium aims to provide opportunities for Japanese investors and investees including those who are previously not familiar with the issues to interact with leading domestic and global professionals and networks.
By this way, it would broaden impact investment market participants in Japan and abroad, as well as advance ideas on practical KPIs, case-based databases and methodologies for identifying and enhancing impact potentials of investees in investment practices.
