Tokyo, February 10, 2023 – Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; Chairman, President & CEO Shingo Konomoto, “NRI”), a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, announced that it was rated as one of the “Top 10%” enterprises in the S&P Sustainability Yearbook 2023 Rankings, an ESG evaluation conducted by S&P Global1, a US-based international ESG investment research and ratings agency.

About the S&P Sustainability Yearbook 2023 Rankings

Every year, S&P Global assesses the sustanability of major companies worldwide focusing on three aspects of economy, environment, and society, by way of its Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). It also publishes the Sustaiability Yearbook, which recognizes companies in various industries that participate in the CSA and that especially stand out for the strength and high level of disclosure of their sustanability efforts.

NRI was rated in the Sustainability Yearbook 2023 Rankings as being among the “Top 10%” of companies participating in the CSA. This year, 7,800 of the world’s major companies (across 61 areas of industry) were evaluated in their respective industries, with the 708 most highly-evaluated companies listed in the Yearbook.
In the industrial field of IT services industry to which NRI belongs, a total of 10 companies globally including NRI were selected as outstanding “Top 10%” companies, with three Japanese companies having received this distinction.

About NRI’s Evaluation

As a company engaged in the field of “information technology services and internet software and services”, NRI received high scores in “governance/economy” for its efforts involving information security and innovation, in “environmental” for using TCFD2 scenario analysis to calculate the financial impact of climate change to its business, and in “social” for enhancing its third-party assurance3 on its society-related data, as well as for the amount invested and professional development hours spent in human resource training. We believe that NRI’s high scores in these areas contributed to its selection as a “Top 10%” company.

NRI has also been selected4 as a constituent of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index, two stock indices which are operated by S&P Global that evaluate the sustainability of companies from an ESG investment perspective.
