LONGEVITY PARTNERS OPEN THEIR ASIAN HEADQUARTERS IN TOYKO, JAPAN

Longevity Partners, the global multidisciplinary ESG Consultancy, has announced today the expansion of its global footprint with the opening of a new office in Tokyo, Japan. The new office, which is set to open on September 5th, 2022, marks the ninth international office for Longevity Partners since its inception in 2015; joining its other locations in Paris, London, Munich, Amsterdam, Milan, Austin, Seattle, and New York.

The expansion comes on the heels of Longevity’s recognition as Europe’s fastest growing ESG advisory firm by the Financial Times and after having doubled its annual revenue for the seventh consecutive year in a row in 2021. In line with Longevity's practice of establishing offices in jurisdictions where clients' needs are the greatest, the new subsidiary will provide local, tailored, and first-class ESG solutions to Longevity’s new and existing clients in Japan and beyond.

Etienne Cadestin, Founder and Global CEO, said: “To respond to fantastic client demand and accelerate our impact in the Asia Pacific region, I am delighted to announce the launch of our Asian headquarters and fully owned subsidiary in Tokyo. We are very excited about our Japanese expansion, the world's third-largest economy.”

“Though the country is the fifth-largest carbon emitter in the world, Japan has a very ambitious emission reduction programme to halve their emissions by 2030. Longevity's local team of experts will provide a unique global experience to the local real asset market to meet their climate goals. Our ambition is to create plenty of green jobs and employ more than a hundred people in the next few years in our Tokyo office, to support our partners and accelerate the region's decarbonisation efforts.”

“This latest expansion finalises our three years globalisation program, which means that we can now deliver globally wherever our clients need us. It also marks a milestone for Longevity as we now have boots on the ground in 6 of the G7 countries, which represent around 30 percent of the global economy.”

“I'm also delighted to bring Kemmu on board to lead our efforts in Japan, and we very much look forward to working closely with him in the coming years to deliver our agenda in the Asia Pacific region to secure a more sustainable, inclusive, and low carbon society for future generations!”

Kemmu Kawai, the new Country Director of Longevity Partners Japan and Asia will be responsible for overseeing all of Longevity’s activities in the region.

Kemmu Kawai, Country Director, said: “I am thrilled to be joining Longevity and excited to launch the Tokyo office, the first Longevity Partner's Asian office with our professional team members. I will bring to the Longevity team my expertise in real estate in Asia and I am looking forward to delivering unique ESG solutions to our local as well as global clients across the Asia Pacific region. I am excited to be in this position to contribute to the success of our business and that of our clients.”

In recent months, Longevity Partners has undergone a tremendous organisational restructuring, including the expansion of its technical expertise at a global level with the appointment of over 70 new experts since January 2022. At the same time, Longevity Partners has invested heavily in the digitalisation of its innovative service solutions and launched new services such as Climate Resilience, Value at Risk, Green Finance, Social Impact and Net Zero Carbon Portfolio Management. The new opening in Tokyo is designed to fit the rapidly evolving needs of its clients and to better support its partners’ decarbonation efforts across the Asia Pacific region, giving Longevity the right edge to assert itself as the first truly global independent ESG advisory firm in the real estate sector.
