Global Innovation and Value Summit 2023 (GIVS2023): Moving Forward with ESG, Scoring for Value Creation

IAFOR is excited to announce the Global Innovation and Value Summit 2023 (GIVS2023), in collaboration with ESG-Integration Research and Education Center (ESG-IREC), OSIPP at Osaka University and the Value Research Center (VRC) at Doshisha University.


In 2023, the European Union’s European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), the International Financial Reporting Standard’s (IFRS’s) International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) each published new guidance for how companies within their jurisdictions account for and report upon their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Impacts.

While Japan stands as the world’s 4th largest economy, many Japanese companies continue to lag with their ESG efforts, as Japan itself has not yet committed to requiring companies to report their impacts beyond the environmentally focused Task Force for Climate Disclosure (TCFD).

This year’s Global Innovation and Value Summit (GIVS) 2023 will introduce the latest advances in value measurement, sustainability disclosure reporting and ESG from the perspective of EFRAG, ISSB and the US SEC Climate Disclosures, and their impacts on how businesses and governments can effectively operate within these increasingly important, but complex, sustainability standards and frameworks.

GIVS 2023 will then place these international advancements into the context of Japan’s historical embrace of a more socially conscious approach to business, as well as the Japanese government’s recent efforts related to its New Capitalism Task Force. Finally, GIVS 2023 will offer ideas and insights into how businesses not only within Japan and Asia, but also globally can integrate, enhance and implement value-focused sustainability initiatives going forward.

This event is designed to more deeply explore how all of these ideas can help guide the next evolutionary step beyond the SDGs that were raised by The Value Research Center and ESG-IREC at the United Nations General Assembly Science Summit (SSUNGA78) in September 2023.

It will bring together some of the world’s top experts in value measurement and scoring, sustainability and ESG issues to discuss, debate and brainstorm new approaches to value creation, responsible business and sustainability initiatives and offer ideas and models for their implementation in 2024 and beyond.
