FTSE JPX Net Zero Japan Index Series

The next generation of climate transition indexes for Japan’s net zero future​

Japanese investors are increasingly seeking to mitigate climate risks, capture climate opportunities from the green economy and ensure alignment with Net Zero by 2050 in their portfolios. The market has taken evolutionary steps as it has developed from relatively simple risk-based implementation options—such as creating "ex fossil fuel" or "low carbon" portfolios—to approaches that also capture the potential upside from the transition to a low carbon economy and a net zero pathway.

As climate transition benchmarks are becoming an important tool for investors, the FTSE JPX Net Zero Japan Index Series, based on JPX’s well-tracked TOPIX 500 is combined with FTSE Russell’s expertise in climate data, target exposure methodology, and index design.

About TPI

The TPI is a global initiative led by asset owners and supported by asset managers. Aimed at investors and free to use, it assesses companies’ preparedness for the transition to a low-carbon economy, supporting efforts to address climate change. Launched in 2017, it is rapidly becoming the "go-to" corporate climate action benchmark.​​

​Using publicly disclosed company information sourced and provided by TPI’s data partner, FTSE Russell, it:​​

  • Evaluates and tracks the quality of companies’ management of their greenhouse gas emissions and of risks and opportunities related to the low-carbon transition;​​
  • Evaluates how companies’ planned or expected future carbon performance compares to international targets and national pledges made as part of the Paris Agreement;​
  • Publishes online the results of this analysis through a publicly-available tool hosted by its academic partner, the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
