Tokyo, May 31, 2021 - Nomura Asset Management Co., Ltd. (NAM), the core company within the Investment Management Division of Nomura Group, today announced that on May 13 it signed the Investor Expectations on Nutrition, Diets and Health developed by Access to Nutrition Initiative (ATNI). ATNI is an initiative by the Access to Nutrition Foundation (ATNF)1, an independent non- profit organization committed to creating positive impacts by tackling the global nutrition crisis.
1 ATNF is an independent non-profit organization founded in 2013 by Dutch entrepreneur Inge Kauer. Committed to eradicating diet-related illnesses and deaths, ATNF encourages companies in the food and beverage industry to address the global nutrition challenges of overweight and obesity, undernutrition, and micronutrient deficiencies, and to improve the diets of adults and children worldwide. ATNF is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the UK's Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).
Access to proper nutrition presents a major global sustainability challenge, as recognized in goals two and three of the Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to achieve zero hunger and good health and well-being.
ATNI develops tools and initiatives to track the contribution of food and beverage companies to addressing global nutrition challenges and delivery on their commitments to nutrition at the national and global level. Through collaboration with ATNI, NAM aims to bolster its ongoing efforts to mitigate the obesity epidemic, a key goal of NAM's public equity impact strategies.
In addition, by making use of the analysis and data ATNI provides on food and beverage companies, and through collaborative engagement with such companies, NAM seeks to strengthen its firm-wide ESG initiatives and build on its efforts to deliver better social outcomes.
As a responsible institutional investor, NAM is committed to making a positive difference in society.
NAM's goal is to strengthen long-term investment performance by enhancing the corporate value of the companies it invests in, while creating positive change in the communities where it operates.
