Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) is promoting the contribution of financial solutions for social challenges. To date, TMG has been proactively making efforts to promote sustainable finance through several actions, such as; the issuance of "Tokyo Green Bonds", the establishment of the "Tokyo ESG fund", the implementation of the "Tokyo Financial Award", membership to the International Network of Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S (*)), and the advancement of cashless finance through the lens of SDGs. As a development of these actions, Tokyo Sustainable Finance Week is organized by TMG with the aim to hold events, which will promote financial services that contribute to the establishment of a sustainable city and advance Tokyo's presence in the field of sustainable finance.
During the Tokyo Sustainable Finance Week, "Sustainable Finance Forum", a forum for Japanese and worldwide government agencies, investors, financial institutions, private entities, etc., is going to be held to discuss the wide range of possibilities of sustainable finance from diverse views. At the same time, "Financial Seminar for Tokyo Residents" for general citizens will be arranged aiming to advance financial literacy and raise awareness of sustainable finance.
