Tempe, Ariz., January 19, 2022 — Persefoni, the leading Climate Management & Accounting Platform (CMAP) for enterprises and financial institutions, today announced that Miho Kurosaki will serve on the company’s Sustainability Advisory Board (SAB).
Kurosaki — Director of the Kamakura Sustainability Institute (KSI), and previously advisor to the Japan Prime Minster’s Office as a member of the Climate Change Expert Panel and Head of ESG APAC & Chief Representative, BloombergNEF Japan — is a leading authority on corporate purpose and the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into corporate and investment decisions. She brings considerable expertise to Persefoni, advising the company on creating best-in-class solutions that help Japanese enterprises and investors manage their carbon accounting, management, disclosure, internal education, and ultimately, decarbonization efforts.
"Miho is one of the most knowledgeable ESG experts in not just Japan, but throughout APAC, and we couldn't be more pleased to welcome her to our Sustainability Advisory Board,” said Kentaro Kawamori, CEO and co-founder of Persefoni.
“Companies and investors are now demanding better platforms to meaningfully track, measure, and disclose sustainability data. Miho has already helped make an impact at Persefoni and will only accelerate our mission of making carbon management and accounting more accessible across the region.”
Together with Kawamori and Tim Mohin — Persefoni’s Chief Sustainability Officer and the former head of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) — Kurosaki joins the SAB, which advises Persefoni’s board and executive team on the integration of sustainability, specifically carbon accounting, into corporate and investment management.
“Japan continues to lead the world with respect to carbon accounting and climate disclosure initiatives,” said Kurosaki. “Having Persefoni's leading Climate Management and Accounting Platform (CMAP) software now built specifically for the Japanese market conclusively illustrates the commitment Persefoni has made to supporting Japan and our businesses, as together we strive for a more sustainable future.”
Kurosaki is also a member of the Sustainable Finance Working Group for the Japan Exchange Group, Inc., a Japanese financial services corporation that operates multiple securities exchanges, including the Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka Securities Exchange.
