aiESG participates in the Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) Forum.

Press Release

Promoting initiatives on natural capital and biodiversity throughout the supply chain with the ESG analysis service aiESG.

(Head office: Hakata-ku, Fukuoka; Representative Director: Shunsuke Managi; hereinafter "the Company"), an ESG assessment company, has endorsed the principles of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD *1) and has joined the TNFD Forum *2 to support its activities. The company has joined the TNFD Forum *2, which supports the activities of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD *1).

In recent years, Nature Positive (Nature Revitalisation) has become a new global trend, following on from carbon neutrality and the circular economy. Nature Positive aims not only to halt the loss of natural capital and biodiversity, but also to conserve and restore natural capital, and its importance is being recognised in corporate management.

In response to this trend, the International Initiative Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) was established in June 2021 with the aim of establishing a framework for private companies and financial institutions to properly assess and disclose risks and opportunities related to natural capital and biodiversity.

TNFD aims to shift global financial flows towards nature positivity and develops and provides a risk management and disclosure framework for companies and organisations to report and address nature-related risks. In Japan, sustainability information disclosure is to be expanded in securities reports from the year ending 31 March 2023, and biodiversity may also be subject to disclosure.

We offer aiESG, a comprehensive ESG analysis service that traces back through the entire supply chain for products and services, providing science-based data and compelling visualisations to help companies identify ESG factors and risk factors, and assists companies wishing to identify them.

Furthermore, in ESG analyses using aiESG, CO2It is possible to trace back the supply chain to analyse not only greenhouse gases such as CO2, but also social and governance aspects, including water consumption, forest area, biomass use, biodiversity, human rights and the labour environment, which have become increasingly important in recent years. This provides companies and organisations with a comprehensive assessment and appropriate disclosure and response measures.

Against the backdrop of the aforementioned growing social concern, the formulation of business strategies that contribute to natural capital and appropriate information disclosure are indispensable elements for companies to continue to be valued by investors and other stakeholders over the long term. We recognise the importance of this and support companies on their path to sustainable growth.

We will use our participation in the Forum as an opportunity to support risk management and information disclosure by companies and organisations through our ESG analysis service, aiESG, and to further promote our efforts to achieve a sustainable society.

Furthermore, analysis by aiESG enables geographical estimation, which is difficult with conventional Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), and enables visualisation of environmental, social and corporate governance hotspots, not only for direct suppliers, but also for secondary and upstream suppliers.

In addition, as the only data required from the customer is product cost composition data or physical quantity data, ESG supply chain disclosures, which previously required huge amounts of man-hours, are facilitated.
