sustainability for good

We want future generations to benefit from what we are doing today.

Everything we do at Nikko AM begins with sustainability. We want your investments to make a positive impact in our world, so we have made environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations part of all our investment processes. We are also determined to see the firms we invest in improve their corporate value and grow sustainably. We do this by meeting with them regularly and encouraging them to keep putting ESG factors first in their businesses.

Through our corporate sustainability activities, we have nurtured a culture of people who care deeply about our workplaces, our communities, and our world.

ESG in Investment

ESG drives our investment strategies

Sustainability and ESG factors are the driving force behind our investment decisions. In 1999, we launched Japan’s first socially responsible investment fund, and we keep improving our ESG efforts and developing innovative ESG solutions for your investments. For example, the pioneering ESG assessments and digital tools we have created help us to make the best possible decisions.

We also understand the urgent need to address climate change through our business so, in 2021, we joined the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative. In November 2022, as part of our participation in the initiative, we have launched a 2030 greenhouse gas emission reduction target. This interim target is to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 (compared to levels as of 31 December 2019) for 43% of total groupwide AUM (as of end December 2021). Further details with regards to our climate change approach will be released in our next TCFD report. This shows our commitment to strengthening our response to the crisis, in line with the Paris Agreement.

Corporate Sustainability

Committed to diversity, equality, and the environment

Over the years, we have developed a culture at Nikko AM that values sustainability. We keep learning, growing, and acting so we can make a lasting difference in the areas of diversity & inclusion (D&I), reducing inequalities, and environment & climate. We collaborate globally and act locally.

Diversity & Inclusion

We are strong because we are diverse and inclusive. Our culture embraces people of different races, genders, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, and religions, and we appreciate the perspectives they bring. Our sustainability groups — including those on women’s empowerment, the LGBT community, racial equality, and disabilities — tell us the next steps we need to take, and we listen.

Reducing Inequality

We want to do whatever we can to help others move forward in their lives and reduce inequalities in our world. As we give to charities and volunteer our time, we support vulnerable groups such as women, children, refugees, low-income families, and victims of human trafficking.

Environment & Climate

We constantly think about how to lessen the impact of our actions on the environment. We are involved in a number of projects to help tackle climate change, and we are always actively working to reduce our carbon footprint.

Fiduciary & ESG Principles

The Responsibility That Guides Us

Our fiduciary duty determines our values and actions. That means we are fully committed to meeting our clients’ needs while also carefully considering the interests of all our stakeholders. There is no question it is part of our fiduciary duty to take ESG principles into account in our investment decisions because these considerations are critical for a firm’s long-term value and sustainable economic growth.

We keep innovating and improving so that we always stay true to the spirit of fiduciary and ESG principles.
