Japan’s Basic Guidelines on Climate Transition Finance, was published by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Financial Services Agency (FSA) and Ministry of the Environment (MOE). It explicitly referenced ICMA’s Climate Transition Finance Handbook, and reflected results of discussion in Japan.

An online event jointly held with METI “Transition Finance in Japan –now and going forward” introduces Japan’s latest development in transition finance.

Experts who were involved in drafting the Guidelines together with international issuers and investors of transition bonds will discuss:

- the issues raised in drafting the Basic Guidelines
- the needs of transition finance
- challenges of transition finance
- recommendations for transition bond issuers
