Now launched: New partnership with the Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA)

Following our successful application for the Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA) special research fellowship, we are proud to announce a new partnership to conduct an impact evaluation of climate-related risks to Japan’s financial stability. The project will be led by Jakob Thomae, managing director at 2° Investing Initiative, and Hugues Chenet, co-founder and board member at 2°ii France.

This partnership represents an important expansion of our climate scenario methodology in a previously untapped market, following our collaborations with the Bank of England, the California Insurance Commissioner, and the European Insurance and Occupational Pension Authority (EIOPA), as well as 17 international banks representing 20% of the global banking sector by asset size. We look forward to sharing more about this exciting new partnership in the coming months.
