Asset Management One Co., Ltd. (“AM-One”, President & CEO: Akira Sugano) announced that AM-One has joined the global initiative “Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials（PCAF) which aims to measure and disclose Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions associated with loans and investments.
PCAF was founded by various financial institutions - including banks, insurance companies, asset owners and asset managers, who believe their role is important in accelerating the transition to a carbon-free economy. PCAF’s ultimate purpose is to make difference in the portfolio of banks and investors in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
AM-One has been making efforts to accelerate the transition to a carbon-free society by engagement with investee companies and under the commitment to reduce the emission of GHG to Net Zero by 2050, we have set the interim goals by 2030 to start initiatives which had begun to show positive result. AM-One have decided to join the PCAF in order to enhance these initiatives, and AM-One also supports PCAF’s industry-led initiative and shares their stance of collaborating plans to promote disclosure of Greenhouse Gas emissions.
By joining PCAF, AM-One will continue to be an asset manager that contributes to a sustainable society and the future of all clients by strengthening our efforts to accelerate decarbonization throughout the asset management industry.
