ESG INVESTINGNovember 2, 2020
Part of the Nichibei Global Talks Video Series
Investors are increasingly paying attention to how companies are addressing Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors. On October 26, 2020, Prime Minister Suga announced Japan’s aim to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050. “This is expected to greatly transform the Japanese economy,” said Mari Yoshitaka, Ph.D., of Mitsubishi UFJ Research and Consulting Co., Ltd., who joins Billy Nauman of Financial Times in this episode on ESG investing and the important role that U.S. and Japanese private companies and financial institutions can play to create a new, sustainable economic market. Though still in the early stages of development, ESG investing has become increasingly popular in the United States and Japan. The dialogue addresses ESG investment trends in the two markets, government policies affecting those trends, impact of COVID-19, examples of U.S. and Japanese companies ranking high in terms of ESG, shared challenges regarding ESG data disclosure and accuracy, and more.

saraya - win-win japan borneo uganda
from 1970 saraya innovated palm oil cleaners for kitchen use- these are bidegradable unlike petroleum based cleansers
but around 2002 the company was inudated with reports that its souyrcing of palm oil from borneo was killing elephants whose palm tree habitat was now the worlds epicente of palm oil production; saraya designed a new supply chain including purchase of its own pal, tree farms made elephant friendly
in 2009, saraya's busneess in uganda started handwashing campaigns to improve the nations sanitation reducing infant mortality by half in under a deade (along with paralel efforst brac uganda)
saraya wanted to make its product massively affordable; to do this it strted social business modeling- it recognised that urgandas sugar cane industry could do much better for ugandas if it recycled sugat cane remants into ethanol sanitisers; by going into this social business saraya scaled handwash products; as well as reduction of infant deaths, ebola in its neighbor the congo has not come to uganda and so dar covid in uganda is less than other neigboring countries- saraya is not claiming that uganda will lead africa in beating covid- bur it is proud that community sanitation social businesses contribute to minimising diseases, local community businesses empwering women, climate solutions shared from community to community

hi-tech note from readers networks (japan, english) of von neumann biography - in 2019 g20 japan asked what society 5.0 maths determines nature's decision whether its time to extinguish homo sapiens- only 3 nations clearly understood the question ( a few more may have been suffering from mental twisties caused by the terrifting donald) many smaller ones eg singapore, nordica, austria, switzerland netherlands could - japan should immediately zoom a new gmathsclub - more at economistjapan.com and under 30s dialogue at japanthanks.com any questions ? firstname.lastname@example.org
scroll down japan 1984 was visit 3 on of 50 i have made to asia; that was 22 years after my father norman macrae of the economist started celebrating japan as offering the world first sustainability models potentially uniting the 65% of peoples who are asian in advancement
my work as a cambridge ma in stats had been very different from dads' - i was helping mit in boston complete the first databank of thousands of projects of what societies most wanted from the world's globally branded companies
i was fascinated by 2 top level exoeriences of this data; big western companies were depending on too much advertising to serve what communities most wanted; japan in 1984 still related all consumer offers to corporate purpose -
however 1984 was 5 years before my father retired from 40 years at the economist to start writing a biography of von neumann - whose knowhow more than any one single person dad said would determine millennials sustainability of extinction; i started co-authoring books with my father beginning with 19834's 2025 report.com - why health and education would need transforming if millennials wrre to be sustainable mapping approximate timeline exponentials if the world wss to be on track in applying numanns 100 times more tech per decade to end povert and to be in time to choose which 2020s autonomous ai solutions the world needed to collaborate arounf first
=================well japan korea china of g20 countries probably understand only common sennse ai choices can now save our species
fortunately 2021 has seen japanese publication of von neumann biography
lets have a look at some of the english speaking dialogues von neumann inspires - sadly i domt speak japanese but i sincerely hope japanese readers of von neumann are uniting nations sdgs deeper more openly that the englsh speaking world

was to reduce physical problems to mathematical form, and then to show how the solution of the mathematical problem
could be expressed in terms of known functions— particularly in terms of a finite number of the elementary functions.

A bibliography similar to Todd’s was given by Forsythe . Carl Friedrich Gauss died in 1855, and World War II began in 1939. Before computers, numerical analysis consisted of stopgap measures for the physical problems that could not be analytically reduced. The resulting hand computations were increasingly aided by mechanical tools which are comparatively well documented, but little was written about numerical algorithms because computing was not considered an archival contribution.2 “The state of numerical mathematics stayed pretty much the same as Gauss left it until World War II” [115, p. 287] (Figure 1.1). “Some astronomers and statisticians did computing as part of their research, but few other scientists were numerically oriented.
Among mathematicians, numerical analysis had a poor reputation and attracted few specialists” [10, pp. 49–50].
