Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (“NRI”), a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, was selected on November 30 to be included for the first time in the “Euronext Vigeo World 120 Index”, a leading ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investment stock index comprised of publicly traded companies with the highest ranks in terms of their ESG performance.

The “Euronext Vigeo World 120 Index” is a stock index developed by Euronext , a Netherlands-based corporation that operates securities exchanges in seven European countries including France and the Netherlands, and Vigeo Eiris , an ESG research company that is based in France and is an affiliate of the US ratings agency Moody's Group. The index is composed of the top 120 companies (19 of which are Japanese firms) recognized for their outstanding ESG practices, selected from among the largest 1,500 companies in terms of market capitalization that are headquartered in Europe, the US, or the Asia-Pacific region.

In its Medium-Term Management Plan (2019-2022), the NRI Group has advocated for “solving social issues through value co-creation”, and has committed itself to conducting business with a core focus on the co-creation of three social values: "Co-creating a thriving future society by driving new value," "Co-creating an ideal society by effectively utilizing its resources," and "Co-creating a safe and secure society by advancing its infrastructure". As such, the NRI Group is concentrating its combined efforts toward achieving these ends.

As part of this initiative, the NRI Group has championed the cause of “sustainability management”, while also responding to issues as a corporate citizen from a global perspective with an eye on worldwide developments, including by releasing human rights reports and conducting scenario analyses as recommended by TCFD . The NRI Group’s ESG efforts and its public disclosures of the results have been recognized internationally for their high quality, ultimately contributing to NRI’s inclusion in the index at this time.

The NRI Group aims to continue enhancing corporate value and promoting the realization of a sustainable society by solving a broad range of social problems.
