Sustainability of Money Forward
Since our founding, we have embraced our corporate mission, “Money Forward. Move your life forward,” and aspired to eliminate financial issues and concerns from the world. Money is merely a tool for living. Yet, many individuals and companies are pressured and affected by it due to lack of adequate knowledge and are unable to take actions. Through our services, we support people to move their lives forward and to drastically enrich everyday life, thus create a society that drives challenges.
Our mission, business activities, and future outlook are summarized in detail in our Integrated Report, which is updated once a year.
We also plan to update our ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) data as needed.

Structure for Promoting Sustainability
In February 2021, we appointed Toshio Taki, Executive Officer and CoPA (Chief of Public Affairs), as Head of Sustainability.
We also established the Sustainability Committee with the aim of further promoting sustainability through regular discussions including External Directors and Executive Officers of each business division in February 2022. The Committee is composed of members appointed by the Board of Directors, and is chaired by the Representative Director, President and CEO. The Committee also ensures the effectiveness and efficiency of sustainability measures by requesting the attendance of External Directors and senior executives of each business division as necessary.
The Committee meets bimonthly to deliberate on sustainability initiatives, monitor the implementation of the measures, and report to the Board of Directors.
Members of the Committee’s Office will further promote company-wide efforts to implement various measures determined by the Committee and the Board of Directors, through coordination with liaisons in related corporate and business divisions within the Group.
