Combined with the establishment today of Nomura Institute of Capital Market Research’s Research Center of Sustainability it shows our commitment towards the sustainable development of society.”

Also today, Nomura Institute of Capital Markets Research (NICMR), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nomura Holdings, said that it established the Nomura Research Center of Sustainability.
