From the EBC

Dear Friends of the EBC,

We still have some available seats for our in-person Briefing on The Economic Security Promotion Law and its consequences for European companies on 22 June 2022. As the Act and its regulations will impact European industry in Japan, it is vital that companies understand how it may affect them depending upon industry segment. Join us if you are available!

Our EBC committees are all working hard on various issues.
The Sustainability and Social Responsibility Committee will hold a committee meeting on 6 July from 9:00am at the EBC. Ms. Hanna Hakko of E3G will give an overview of Japan’s climate policies, especially in the context of the growing international pressure. There will also be ample time for members to give an update on what they are doing in regard to decarbonisation.
If you and your company are interested in joining, do send an email to our Policy Director, Bjorn Kongstad ([email protected]). We look forward to seeing you on 6 July from 09H00 at the EBC in Toranomon!
