The EU is independently promoting the standardization of sustainable finance, but, toward the common goal of carbon neutral, to exchange opinions on the future direction of sustainable finance by four panelists from Japan and the EU is expected in this webinar. The purpose of this seminar is to have discussions/dialogues regarding sustainable finance with a view to making good, hopefully well-coordinated policy makings toward the common goal of carbon neutral by 2050.
