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

▶︎ TERRAST β, non-financial database
The TERRAST β extra-financial database visualizes a company’s environmental and social contribution using AI and big data. More than 700 extra-financial data per company are collected and analyzed by AI. Based on the results of the analysis, the degree of contribution to sustainability is visualized, breaking down the overall score into individual themes such as climate change, environmental management, diversity and workers’ rights. The system also allows users to view the data that makes up the data and to compare their business with other businesses in the same industry over time. Since December 2021, some of Japan’s major financial institutions have started adopting the system. The system is also available with an English interface for non-Japanese financial institutions. TERRAST β will evolve into a single platform that will enable the collection and analysis of information to inform “good business” globally.
