Rimm Japan Partners with LTS and ME-Lab Japan To Develop “Climate Hybrid Risk Indicators”

Rimm Japan Inc. and its parent company, Rimm Sustainability Pte Ltd. have entered a business partnership with LTS Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiary, ME-Lab Japan Inc., to conduct joint research on the development of new climate risk assessment indicators and provide services related to ESG assessment. Through this business partnership, we will be able to provide comprehensive support, from evaluating a company’s overall ESG issues to consulting on implementing improvement activities.

Details of the Business Partnership

Rimm, LTS, and ME-Lab Japan have now agreed to collaborate in the following two areas:

1. Support for Companies to Evaluate and Improve Their Overall ESG

Rimm offers advanced market understanding of ESG and a platform for digitizing corporate sustainability evaluations. Through its partnership with LTS and ME-Lab Japan, which provide climate management consulting services based on in-depth scientific knowledge of climate change, RIMM will combine the strengths and customer bases of the three companies to help more companies evaluate ESG in general and promote improvement activities based on the results of that evaluation. This collaboration aims to support the advancement of corporate ESG management and the sustainable growth of society and companies.

2. Joint Research into the “Climate Hybrid Risk” Index

LTS and ME-Lab Japan are collaborating with MetaEarth Lab, Inc., a Korean academic start-up, to develop services related to climate change risks, particularly physical risks (risk of physical damage caused by increased natural disasters and extreme weather). Meanwhile, Rimm has been developing services related to transition risks within the climate change risk spectrum (risks of responding to strengthened regulations by governments and other organizations and the transition to decarbonization technologies). Together, LTS, ME-Lab Japan, and Rimm will conduct joint research to develop new indicators and provide services regarding “climate hybrid risk,” which considers both physical risks and transition risks, with the aim of enabling companies to assess and consider risks due to climate change with greater accuracy.
