Global leaders will explain application of ESG at real estate asset management level to Japanese institutional investors

Asterisk will hold an event of ESG Real Estate Investment Symposium in Tokyo on October 24th 2018. This event is for Japanese pension funds, insurance companies, financial institutions, real estate asset management companies, and developers. 

Asterisk has observed considerable increase of interest in ESG real estate investment. Prominent Japanese investors are seriously looking into sustainable investments, and understand the necessity of corporate level social responsibility. We are observing investors seeking long term investments, showing sustainability as an essential criteria.

Institutional investors have been looking for information on actual application of ESG. In the form of a seminar, we will meet these demands by inviting key specialists in this sector.

Anna Murray from Bentall Kennedy, Co-Chair of the United Nations Environment Program / Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) Property Working Group will discuss the efforts being made by global leaders for ESG real estate management.

EY Japan’s Senior Manager for Climate Change and Sustainability Services, Heather McLeish, will discuss the impact of ESG and CSR, proposing solutions necessary for sustainability and competitiveness.

Ryuichi Horie, Co-founder and CEO of CSR Design Green Investment Advisory (Japan), an adviser for UNEP FI Property Working Group, will explain their global ESG frameworks for Japanese investors.

We will be gathering questions from Japanese institutional investors prior to the event for the speakers to address.
