The IIRC and ICGN first partnered in 2016 for a conference that focused on ‘dialogue for longer term value creation’. It provided an opportunity to create better awareness and understanding around longer-term factors that influence business and investment decision making.

This conference, entitled ‘Journey towards longer term value creation’ will take these conversations a step further. Hosted by the Japanese Institute of CPAs and the Tokyo Stock Exchange, our global conference will discuss:

  • Enhancing Long term corporate value in a Japanese context
  • Leveraging connections between reporting and governance to support long-term value creation
  • Corporate governance: improved board leadership and effectiveness
  • Direction of investor stewardship and engagement desired by the Japanese corporates under the ESG integration
  • Corporate governance and Integrated Reporting: views, insights and implications from survey findings
  • Overcoming obstacles to effective stewardship
  • Coherent corporate reporting: achieving the right balance between regulatory discipline and market judgement
  • Optimizing capital allocation within the investment chain
  • Board evaluation and director nomination
  • Meaningful and credible disclosure: Tackling the issue of boiler plate disclosure.
