Publish the Paper on Impact Management on Japanese Journal with Nomura Asset Management

IMPACTLAKE has conducted joint research on the evolution of impact accounting and the use of logic models in business strategy with Nomura Asset Management (Location: Koto-ku, Tokyo; CEO and President: Hiroyasu Koike; hereinafter “Nomura Asset Management”) and Professor Yumiko Miwa (School of Commerce, Meiji University). The results of this joint research have been published in the monthly journal “Gekkan Shihon Shijou”(Japanese) by the Capital Markets Research Institute.

As businesses aim for sustainability, Impact Management—advanced ESG—is becoming more vital. Our joint research simplifies Impact Management, using Impact-Weighted Accounts to quantify impact universally. This method includes a logic model for visualizing corporate ripple effects and articulating business strategies. By adopting this integrated approach, we highlight the practical importance of Impact Management for companies and investors.

The research suggests practical ways for Impact Management and includes specific analyses for individual companies. The results highlight challenges like the need for broader use to enhance disclosure and reduce burdens. However, it also shows that the methodology is currently useful.

IMPACTLAKE will continue various initiatives and collaborations in the field to promote the simultaneous achievement of social value creation and sustainable growth for companies, contributing to the realization of a sustainable society.
