Sustainability Frameworks and Reporting Alignment Services

Organizations are struggling with both understanding ESG commitments and expectations, as well as knowing how to respond to new demands for action on ESG-aligned business strategies and investing practices. Read the Air supports listed Japanese Companies and Financial Services firms to report in compliance with new Japan Financial Service Agency disclosure regulations and to properly align themselves with these rapidly changing reporting frameworks, conventions and policies.

SERVICE OFFERINGS

  • Sustainability Baseline Definition and Disclosure Report Mapping

  • Japan FSA-Compliant Sustainability Disclosure Reporting

Starting April 1, 2023, all listed Japanese companies suddenly will face the requirement for compliance with reporting according to international ESG frameworks. The Japan Financial Service Agency (FSA)  has outlined these new regulations in its  November 2022 announcement of revisions.

These new FSA Corporate Sustainability Disclosures are part of a revision to the Cabinet Office Ordinance on Disclosure of Corporate Information and include reporting on:

  • Corporate Sustainability Indicators, Targets and Initiatives

  • Human Capital and Diversity

  • Corporate Governance and Risk Management

Read the Air is well placed to work with clients on FSA-compliant reporting in both English and Japanese and in providing ongoing Assessment and Reporting services.

We work with you to identify the current status of your organization and how it may already satisfy the new Japan FSA requirements with our Organizational Sustainability Baseline Definition and Disclosure Report Mapping service.

From this baseline, we are able to identify the data and qualitative information that is required to properly disclose your sustainability actions and initiatives with the RtA Japan FSA-Compliant Sustainability Disclosure Reporting service. 

After proceeding through the initial reporting for the new Japan FSA Corporate Sustainability Disclosures, your organization will be better able to understand what it does well, and where it can improve it's reporting. Read the Air can help you further to harness this knowledge and data to improve your actual sustainability initiatives and strategy with the Future Sustainability Paths services, a complementary set of Assessment Service Offerings (see next).
