We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to participate in the co-creative Initiative to address social challenges with other financial institutions under the Japan Impact-driven Financing Initiative. Innovative solutions are needed to quickly address longstanding social challenges. We have invested in a number of deep-tech startups that are using the technology to solve some of the world's biggest challenges. We've helped them grow and create impact by providing hands-on support from our dedicated team. In collaboration with other signatory organizations, we will continue to contribute to solving social issues more effectively through implementing IMM* practices.
