The Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau (TCVB) is delighted to announce that Tokyo has been confirmed as the host city for the PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) global conference (PRI in Person 2023) from October 3 - 5, 2023. The 2023 conference will be the 15th annual event and the first one held in Asia in seven years and the first time in Japan.

PRI in Person is the world's leading responsible investment conference, convening over 1,000 delegates each year to learn the latest developments, discuss best practices, and network. It plays a unique role in bringing industry leaders together to share knowledge and effect change.

The 2023 conference program will include experts from PRI signatories, policymakers, and the broader financial community and expects to attract a diverse group of investment industry stakeholders, including asset owners, foundations, investment managers, and service providers. CEOs, CIOs, directors, portfolio managers, and RI/ESG specialists will be among them.

Japan has a long-standing focus which is aligned with PRI's mission to help create an economically efficient, sustainable global financial system that will reward long-term, responsible investment and benefit the environment and society.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) has agreed to provide a generous subsidy as needed through financial and in-kind support for the conference.

The TMG and TCVB will continue to offer support to deliver a successful and unforgettable PRI in Person 2023 in Tokyo.

About the Principles for Responsible Investment
The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is the world's leading proponent of responsible investment. Supported by the United Nations, it works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole. Launched in New York in 2006, the PRI has grown to more than 5,000 signatories, managing over US$121 trillion. For more information visit
