Supporting the Activities of UNESCO Associated Schools
In an effort to nurture the next generation that is essential for realizing and maintaining a sustainable society, MUFG Bank actively supports SDGs education in schools in a joint effort with the National Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan. In fiscal 2020, we provided grants to 79 schools under the "UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) SDGs Assist Project". Also, as a consponsor of the Annual National Conference of the UNESCO Associated Schools Network, we have contributed to promoting the activities of UNESCO Associated Schools through introducing our corporate initiatives related to the SDGs.
Fostering Environmental Leaders
Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities (the Securities Business) is responsible for the "Designing Environmental Business" segment in the "International Program for Environmental Innovators" offered at Keio University's Graduate School.
In this way, the Securities Business has worked to train people and create an environment that nurtures highly-skilled environmental specialists that will contribute to a low-carbon society. We have also provided lectures on environmental business, emissions reduction credit schemes, such as for CDM and JCM, global warming issues and other matters related to sustainable society, and speeches on ESG (Environmental, Social,and Governance) investment and corporate initiatives for realizing sustainable development goals (SDGs), at various universities（Note）.
In future, while leveraging our extensive track record, know-how and networks that we have developed in the fields of ESG investment, climate finance, climate change financial information disclosure, etc. in integrated initiatives across the MUFG Group, we intend to train environmental human resources through the Group's broad financial functions and global network.
