|Dear Friends of the EBC,
The EBC committees are made of European companies. They monitor the Japanese market, work on non-tariff barriers to produce the EBC White Paper, meet with ministries and various organizations and set up events for their members.
On 9 December, our Sustainability & Social Responsibility Committee will welcome Aya Nomizu, manager at PRI Japan (a UN-supported initiative), in charge of Climate Action 100+ for Japan. She will introduce the activities of both PRI and CA100+, and share her views on how Japanese and European stakeholders perform and engage in these international initiatives.
On 5 December, the Logistics & Freight Committee will arrange a presentation from the Narita International Airport Corporation (NAA). The presentation (in Japanese with rudimentary interpretation) will be focusing on the freight part of NAA’s activities.
If these are topics that would interest you, please feel free to join by sending us an email!
Finally, I would like to share with you a few events organised by our stakeholders or close partner organisations:
