Tokyo, January 25, 2021 ー NRI, a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, started providing the service for net-zero financed emissions commitment. The service combines solutions that analyze financed emissions and consulting services that help financial institutions develop and achieve net-zero portfolios.

To achieve a sustainable society, the financial industry has taken various initiatives such as measuring financed emissions and establishing decarbonization goals. For instance, the Net Zero Banking Alliance, established in April 2021, commits to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Also, the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), of which many Japanese financial institutions are members, recommends climate-related financial disclosures including governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets.

Using NRI’s new service allows financial institutions to adopt a standardized calculation method for financed emissions and formulate strategies to achieve a net-zero portfolio.

  • Provides a decarbonization pathway and technology roadmap based on NRI’s experience in consulting for public and private sector (available in 2022)
