UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD’S SMITH SCHOOL OF ENTERPRISE & ENVIRONMENT: Stranded Assets Forum Tokyo

January 31, 2017

The University of Oxford’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, with Bloomberg LP acting as host, is organising a private high-level forum on stranded assets and the future of sustainable finance. This will take place on 31st January 2017 in Tokyo and follows on from six equivalent forums organised by the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom and the United States.

The forum will bring together a small number of senior practitioners from key groups throughout the investment chain, as well as leading researchers and policymakers. Invitations are personal and non-transferable, there is no fee for attendance, and there will be no more than 70 high-level attendees.

The Paris Agreement coming into force, major developments in clean technology, changing interpretations of fiduciary duty, and parallel developments in company and investor disclosure mean that factors related to the environment are becoming ever more material and could reshape the risk and return profile of investments in key sectors around the world.

Our inaugural forum in Japan will examine the major developments in stranded assets and sustainable finance-related topics and look at their possible implications for Japanese financial institutions and financial regulators. There will also be a session discussing the work of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

By Invitation only
