【Notice of Postponement】

We deeply regret having to inform you that this conference will not take place in April as planned and will be postponed to a later date in 2020 which we hope to announce as soon as possible. As you will understand, we have made this very difficult decision in response to the growing concerns around Covid-19 (Coronavirus). The postponed conference will still be held in Tokyo with speakers and agenda as originally planned.

This invite-only conference is a gathering of senior leaders from business, finance, policymaking and think tanks to discuss issues and solutions towards driving innovation in policy towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A particular focus will be on greater multi-stakeholder participation in climate change solutions in Japan.

The format will be interactive with several key themes discussed by expert panels and facilitation to encourage audience participation. While the majority of speakers and attendees will be from Japan, there will be significant input from global experts and leaders. There will be ample time for networking between the panels. A desired outcome is that the gathering will trigger new partnerships and practical ideas around climate policy innovation among stakeholders from business, finance, research and policymakers.
