The Working Group on Impact IPOs of the Japan National Advisory Board, the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG-NAB Japan) strives to expand the impact investment market and ecosystem in Japan. It has released a draft “Guidance for Information Disclosure and Dialogue in the Capital Markets of Impact Companies” in light of the current challenges, including the lack of a well-defined method to communicate to investors the linkage between pursuing impact and sustainable business growth, both when and after an impact company goes public, in order to generate a constructive dialogue.
Impact IPO Working Group is composed of Japanese business companies, investors, securities firms, and other capital market participants. GLIN Partner Masato is also involved as a member.
We hope to see more initiatives based on this guidance so that impact companies can realize sustainable corporate value enhancement while creating impact after listing.
