Signing of the Japan Impact-driven Financing Initiative,
which aims to solve environmental and social issues through investment and financing

 

Dream Incubator, Inc. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President and COO Takayuki Miyake, hereinafter referred to as “DI”) has signed the ” Japan Impact-driven Financing Initiative “.

 

The ” Japan Impact-driven Financing Initiative ” is an initiative for financial institutions to work in cooperation with each other to promote investment and financing decisions based on the concept of solving environmental and social issues by capturing the environmental and social changes brought about by the recipient of the investment or loan (impact orientation) and measuring and managing the impact created.

 

DI’s mission is to “create businesses that change society,” and we have been aiming to solve sustainable social issues by creating businesses with social impact, investing in domestic and overseas venture companies that contribute to solving social issues, and establishing “Next Rise Social Impact Fund Investment Limited Partnership,” the first social impact bond (SIB) fund in Japan and one of the largest in Asia. We have decided to sign this initiative to create even greater social impact as we have in the past, in conjunction with other organizations that have signed this initiative.

 

Based on this initiative, DI will continue to realize DI’s mission of “creating businesses that change society” by making full use of the power it has cultivated so far to create concepts, build partnerships among stakeholders, and unite them as a business to solve various social issues.

Signatories to the Initiative are required to position impact creation as the purpose of their organizations, to promote impact-oriented investment and financing by measuring and managing the impact created, and to collaborate with other signatories in activities aimed at the development of impact in the domestic market.
