Bringing together stakeholders from finance, business, policy and civil society towards an accelerated clean energy transition for Japan

About Us

The Japan Energy Transition Initiative (JETI) is a collaboration of global and Japanese knowledge providers dedicated to accelerating the energy transition among business, finance and policy makers in Japan. JETI will address key global climate and energy issues relevant to Japan in a manner that is ahead of the curve and focused on specific outcomes leading to decarbonisation. JETI is funded by philanthropic grants and is independent of any corporate or political agendas.

Focus Areas

How corporations impact the climate policy agenda is of increasing importance to a range of stakeholders including global investors. This workstream will evaluate global and Japanese trends and convene events to drive best practice within corporate Japan.

This workstream will bring together business and policy maker practitioners in Tokyo to maximize opportunities in this upcoming global revolution.

Institutional shareholders globally are raising climate risk above being just another ESG issue into mainstream decision making. This workstream will examine shareholder processes such as Climate Action 100+ and how Japanese companies and finance can best show global leadership in this area.

Offshore wind energy is revolutionizing Europe’s electric power sector with further expansion expected as costs decline.

This work stream will bring global regulators, finance players and thought leaders together to discuss how this should best be done in a Japanese and Asian context.

The world’s energy needs are set to grow significantly particularly in Asia. Critical risks around climate change are only now being understood yet investors and governments are expected to make multi-decade financing decisions.
