▶︎Comments from Yuki Kishi, CFO
I am very honored to receive this prestigious award. As all business and investment decisions become ESG-oriented in the future, we will continue to expand our business by deepening our products and building a sustainable team to illuminate all "good" companies all around the world through the visualization of non-financial values. We are looking for new members who want to join the forefront of creating a sustainable world with the power of data science!

▶︎ TERRAST β, non-financial data bank
The non-financial databank TERRAST β visualizes a company's environmental and social contribution using AI and big data. More than 700 non-financial data items per company are collected and analyzed by AI. Based on the analysis results, the degree of contribution to sustainability is visualized, by breaking-down the overall score into individual themes such as climate change, environmental management, diversity, and workers' rights. The system also enables users to view the data that make up the data, and to compare their company with other companies in the same industry over time. Since December 2021, some of the major Japanese financial institutions have started adopting the system. The system is also available with an interface in English for non-Japanese financial institutions. TERRAST β will evolve into a one-stop platform that enables information gathering and analysis to illuminate "good companies" globally.
