In this policy briefing, we explore key PRI in Person 2023 highlights from a policy perspective, including announcements from policymakers as well as policy-related insights and key findings presented by a wide range of stakeholders.

PRI in Person 2023 (PiP 2023) was held at the International Convention Centre Pamir in Tokyo, Japan from 3 to 5 October 2023. PRI in Person provides a platform for PRI signatories and other investment professionals to learn, exchange and collaborate with peers from around the globe, featuring insightful discussion and debate on the latest responsible investment trends.

This year, the theme was “moving from commitments to action”. As such, public policy was a prevalent topic that featured heavily across our six streams and, of course, the Sustainable Finance Policy Conference. Policy is being increasingly viewed as an important component of sustainable finance that can help enable further necessary action on sustainability outcomes.

We invited speakers representing policymakers worldwide, including the UK, France, Spain, the EU, the US, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, making the event a truly global platform for investor and policymaker dialogue. PiP 2023 also welcomed Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who provided the keynote address, in which he announced crucial policy commitments from Japan.
