About The Event

The IAFOR Global Innovation and Value Summit 2023

Moving Forward with ESG: Scoring for Value Creation  ESGとともに前進:価値創造に向けたスコアリング

In collaboration with ESG-Integration Research and Education Center (ESG-IREC), OSIPP, Osaka University and the Value Research Center (VRC), Doshisha University 共催:大阪大学大学院国際公共政策研究科ESG-インテグレーション研究教育センター;  同志社大学価値研究センター

Date: Friday 17 November 2023, 10:00-17:30

Venue: Saji Memorial Hall, Osaka University Nakanoshima Center, Osaka, Japan


In 2023, the European Union’s European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), the International Financial Reporting Standard’s (IFRS’s) International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) each published new guidance for how companies within their jurisdictions account for and report upon their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Impacts. While Japan stands as the world’s 4th largest economy, many Japanese companies continue to lag behind their global counterparts with their ESG efforts, as Japan itself has not yet committed to requiring companies to report their impacts beyond the environmentally focused Task Force for Climate Disclosure (TCFD).

This year’s Global Innovation and Value Summit (GIVS) 2023 will first introduce the latest advances in value measurement, sustainability disclosure reporting and ESG from the perspective of EFRAG, ISSB and the US SEC Climate Disclosures, and their impacts on how businesses and governments can effectively operate within these increasingly important, but complex, sustainability standards and frameworks. GIVS 2023 will then place these latest international advancements into the context of Japan’s historical embrace of a more socially conscious approach to business as well as the Japanese government's recent efforts related to its New Capitalism Task Force. Finally, GIVS 2023 will offer ideas and insights into how businesses not only within Japan and Asia, but also globally can integrate, enhance and implement value-focused sustainability initiatives going forward.

This event is designed to more deeply explore how all of these ideas can help guide the next evolutionary step beyond the SDGs that were raised by The Value Research Center and ESG-IREC at the United Nations General Assembly Science Summit (SSUNGA78) in September 2023.

It will bring together some of the world's top experts in value measurement and scoring, sustainability and ESG issues to discuss, debate and brainstorm new approaches to value creation, responsible business and sustainability initiatives and offer ideas and models for their implementation in 2024 and beyond.

The IAFOR Global Innovation and Value Summit 2023

Moving Forward with ESG: Scoring for Value Creation  ESGとともに前進:価値創造に向けたスコアリング

共催:大阪大学大学院国際公共政策研究科ESG-インテグレーション研究教育センター;  同志社大学価値研究センター

開催日時: 2023 年 11 月17 日(金)10:00-17:30   会場: 大阪大学中之島センター 佐治敬三メモリアル·ホール  使用言語:英語(日本語同時通訳あり)

来たる 11 月17 日に大阪大学中之島センターにおいて、大阪大学大学院国際公共政策研究科 ESG-インテグレーション研究教育センターと同志社大学価値研究センター共催(International Academic Forum協力)で、第3回 Global Innovation and Value Summit (GIVS)を開催します。第一回サミットは2018 年に東京丸の内で開催、2022年はコロナ禍のためオンラインで開催したしたが、今回は関西開催の運びとなりました。

前回のテーマに引き続き ESG に関する諸課題について、ESG スコアリングや会社の価値評価、サステナビリティについて、海外の第一線で活躍する専門家を招いて、日本企業の ESG の取組みも含めた現状とSDGが区切りを迎える2030年以降を見据えた今後の課題について、3つの観点から掘り下げて議論します。

(1)複雑さを増すサステナビリティ評価基準やフレームワークのなかで、官民が如何に効率的に連携していけるか。  (2)伝統的に社会全体の利益を意識した「商売」哲学・文化を大切にしてきた日本企業の流儀や、昨今動き始めた政府の「新資本主義タスクフォース」などの日本発の取組みが、欧米主導かつ金融市場偏重 になりガちなESG の世界的な動向のなかデ、新たな「第3の道」を提示しうるか。  (3)「価値」の創造を中心としたサステナビリティのイニシアティブを推進するためには、どのような問題を解決しなけれはならないか。


2023 年に欧州財務報告諮問グループ(EFRAG)、国際サステナビリティ基準審議会(ISSB)や米 国証券取引委員会などが相次いで ESG インパクト報告についての新しいガイドラインを発表していますが、日本企業の ESG への取り組みはEUや米国企業に比べて出遅れていると言わざるを得ません。

その要因は様々ありますが、現状において日本では気候変動に重点を置く機構関連財務開示タスク フォース(TCFD)に賛同する企業はあるものの、それ以上の ESG 関連の情報開示にはまだ積極的とは言えません。また、国内各地では SDG のロゴは定着しつつあるものの、乱立する欧米基準のESGスコアリングや評価システムへの対応に戸惑いがみられることも否めません。そもそも企業情報を開示するメリットをどこに見出すかは日本、海外を問わず、ESGの大きな課題と言えます。

11 月には、かかる問題意識を念頭に、EFRAG やISSB などの見地から価値評価やサステナビリティ情報開示に関する最新の動向や方向性の相違などに関する専門的な議論を踏まえ、日本からの発信も含む官民学のそれぞれの立場からの活発な議論が期待されます。皆様のご参加を心待ちにしております。
