Renewable energy enhances corporate value
25 October 2017

Renewable Energy Institute and CDP Japan jointly organized a seminar on Wednesday 25 October.

The choice a company makes about its energy sourcing and consumption has a profound influence today on corporate value and business continuity. Companies that are adopting sustainable business practices are increasingly becoming important considerations for investors, a trend that is driving companies to turn green. Such global investor trends were presented by invited experts in this seminar, followed by a panel discussion where panelists discussed and shared their thoughts on future prospects and challenges for Japan.
