This is the final part of our two-part 2023 ESG Outlook Series, in which we explore the year ahead for policy and regulation.
In this episode, we delve into global policy and regulatory themes for the year ahead with Andrew Bowley, Managing Director for Group Sustainability Strategy at Nomura. We examine whether ESG can regain the ground it lost in 2022 after banks threatened to leave key climate groups and asset managers faced pressure from investors and politicians over their primary duty to maximize returns. We also discuss the policy outlook in Japan with Kohei Okazaki, Nomura’s ESG policy expert. We discuss how Japan’s GX (green transformation) league may evolve and whether Japan will make progress on reducing its reliance on coal.
