Trends in Performance of Japanese Companies under the Global ESG Rating Models
With the expansion of SRI beyond "traditional" SRI markets in Europe and North America, ESG rating models, previously developed in and applied to these regions, have variously been directly translated and applied to other markets, such as Japan and other Asian countries. This presentation will examine;
- How have Japanese performed in such rating framework?
- How have actual corporate practices, as well as performance, changed?
- How do they compare with global counterparts, including those from emerging markets in Asia?
- How appropriate is this practice of defining and measuring sustainability and ESG performance from one market to another?
