Nomura is a global financial services group with a presence in over 30 countries and regions.
By connecting markets East & West, we service the needs of individuals, institutions, corporates and governments through our three business divisions: Retail, Wholesale (Global Markets and Investment Banking) and Investment Management. We put our clients at the center of everything we do, delivering unparalleled access to, from and within Asia.
Since 1925, Nomura has generated social value by developing the capital markets. We use our expertise to enrich society and “achieve sustainable growth”. ESG is embedded in Nomura’s DNA. Our ESG practice – from Tokyo to London and New York – acts as a bridge between issuers, investors, governments, corporates and startups, delivering advice and execution, while driving debate and thought leadership.
Our ESG actions fully match our commitments. We do not provide financing for new thermal coal power and have strict guidelines on financing mining, oil and gas, forestry and armaments.
In 2021, Nomura committed to net zero carbon emissions for operations by 2030 and to transition attributable GHG emissions from our lending and investment portfolios to achieve net zero by 2050. We also set a target to deploy US$125 billion in sustainable financing by March 2026. Our ESG ratings are top 4% for S&P and top 7% for Sustainalytics; our commercial focus in banking and markets aligns with an internal drive to continually enhance our ESG ratings and credentials.
By aiming for the highest ESG standards, our teams understand clients’ challenges and can respond with creative solutions. In addition to our ESG debt franchise, we support investors and investment banking clients via Nomura Greentech and have one of the largest EMEA sustainable finance teams, with 70 experts across industry and country teams as well as M&A, financing and risk solutions.
