Sustainability Data Section – The Carbon Trading Marketplace in Japan

At our last meeting we heard from GPIF, JFSA and others about Japan’s plans for transition finance through new green government bonds.

Carbon credits and their trading is another key strategy in funding the transition to lower GHG emission and ultimately a net zero economy.

JPX designed and built the Japan Carbon Market in record time leveraging deep market experience and disruptive cloud technology. This presentation gives an insight into how the market works both in terms of the traded products (credits) and the associated trading and data systems.
