Rating and Investment Information, Inc.
R&I has been meeting the needs of the capital market through the credit rating business in which, as Japan’s premier rating agency, it has a track record spanning more than 40 years. We have also played a pioneering role in the external assessment of ESG finance since we provided our external assessment for the first domestic green bond issued by a Japanese company in 2016. While addressing increasingly diverse ESG financing instruments, we support the promotion of impact investment and lending by financial institutions from the standpoint of an external reviewer. We are committed to contributing to impact-driven financing by strengthening collaboration with other signatory organizations and continuing to offer trusted evaluation services.
