Japan’s Stewardship Code

AMO has declared acceptance of the ‘Principles for Responsible Institutional Investors’, known as Japan’s Stewardship Code, to fulfil its fiduciary duty and stewardship responsibilities properly as a responsible asset manager. Japan’s Stewardship Code was established by the Financial Services Agency and refers to the responsibilities of institutional investors to enhance the medium- to long-term investment return for their clients and beneficiaries, including ultimate beneficiaries, by improving and fostering the investee companies’ corporate value and sustainable growth.

United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment

The AMO Group has been a proud signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) since 2013 (formerly known as the DIAM Group). As a signatory to the UNPRI our aim is to further fulfil our social responsibilities as an institutional investor based on our fiduciary responsibilities, acting in the best long-term interests of our clients and investors.

Montreal Carbon Pledge

AMO and the AMO Group became a signatory to the Montreal Carbon Pledge in October 2015 (formerly known as DIAM). By signing the Montreal Carbon Pledge, investors commit to measuring and publicly disclosing the carbon footprint of their equities portfolios on an annual basis.

The total amount of greenhouse gas discharge for 2018 was approximately 28,000,000 ton. This amount was calculated based on the number of shares owned by all our equities portfolios, as at October 2018. We will continue to disclose greenhouse gas discharge amount regularly.
