    <sec>
    <title content-type="abstract-subheading">Purpose</title>
    The purpose of this paper is to investigate investors’ perception of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and its risk-mitigating effects on firm-level innovation in Japan from 2006 to 2017. The authors examine the influence of CSR intensity on firm-specific risks, focusing on the risk-moderating effect of CSR on innovation.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title content-type="abstract-subheading">Design/methodology/approach</title>
    The authors conducted a simple slope analysis and panel data regressions with input and output innovation measures and idiosyncratic risk based on an asset-pricing model.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title content-type="abstract-subheading">Findings</title>
    The results demonstrate that CSR intensity not only reduces firm-specific risk directly but also indirectly by negatively moderating the relationship between firm-level innovation and idiosyncratic risk.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title content-type="abstract-subheading">Research limitations/implications</title>
    Signaling trust to capital markets, CSR engagements in the manufacturing industry are clearly important for innovative firms with active research and development undertakings.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title content-type="abstract-subheading">Practical implications</title>
    Corporate managers should further expand their efforts to make non-financial disclosures available, considering the interactions between CSR intensity and research and development financial risk.

    <sec>
    <title content-type="abstract-subheading">Originality/value</title>
    In the context of Japanese firms, this study demonstrates the interaction between CSR practices and innovation activities from the perspective of long-term management of corporate sustainability.

     View Summary

    Purpose: Managers sometimes hide their level of corporate social performance (CSP) from investors, intentionally or unintentionally. The purpose of this study is to estimate such "hidden CSP" of firms. Design/methodology/approach: In this study, it is assumed that Japanese public firms can be classified into two groups based on the difference in corporate social responsibility (CSR) awareness. Thus, the respondents to the CSR questionnaire survey are classified as the CSR-aware group, and the non-respondents are treated as the CSR-unaware group. It is further assumed that a significant relationship exists between CSP and a firm's attributes, including financial performance and stock ownership. Under these assumptions, a model to estimate the CSP of non-respondents is constructed using the relationship between CSP and a firm's observable attributes. Findings: There is a significant latent gap between the CSP of respondents and the hidden CSP of non-respondents because of differences in firm size, foreign dependency of business and reputation and trust in the financial markets, rather than because of differences in financial performance. Insider-oriented ownership structures are negatively associated with CSP. Research limitations/implications: The estimation model developed in this study depends on a set of assumptions. In particular, a stable relationship between CSP and firm-specific variables, i.e. there is no structural change during the observation period, is assumed. Despite these limitations, this study extends the CSR research perspective, as it makes it possible to estimate the hidden CSP of public firms. Practical implications: In practice, the findings of this study surface a part of the missing CSR that investors need and that could alert non-respondent firms to the importance of CSR strategy and related disclosures to adapt to rapidly changing social and environmental business settings. Originality/value: This study is the result of academic interest in examining the missing information related to CSR activities to obtain an overall picture of the CSP distribution of Japanese listed firms as a whole.

     View Summary

    In Japan, ESG investment of pension funds grows only sluggishly and the national opinion on this investment is comparable by a third respectively among "positive", "negative" and "no-idea". However, the fact that CSR activities are ordinarily conducted by many Japanese companies and high consciousness of the Japanese people concerning environmental and social problems indicate that ESG investment may possibly expand greatly. As Japan faces problem of population aging and fertility decline, to awake and cultivate national sentiment is necessary.
    The role of the soft-law, the application of "Comply or explain" and the importance of independence are pointed out as legal and practical issues. In the quantitative analysis, it is confirmed in Japanese stock market that the CSR activities have certain influence on equity performance.

     View Summary

    This project has been carrying on the study about the trends of the risk sharing between public and private sectors in the fields such as housing, education, community development, and deposit insurance system, as well as traditional area of welfare state system such as social welfare, pension, and medicare plans upon the understanding that welfare state system should be thought as the economic and crisis management system which can not be accomplished only through the market mechanisum, focusing on the area where ways of intervening of the public sector tend to take indirect forms such as financial guarantee activities for the private sectors since 1970s.
    Our project has not reached the common conclusion because each field has the different trends. But for example in the housing finance sectors, we can see the trends that public sectors' coverage in the each market tend to be higher comparing to former direct intevention for income redistribution from the public sectors to individual economic entities by the public sectors in this filed, as well as the high regulated and publicly intervened sectors in the newly industrialized countries in Asia.

     View Summary

    This project have been carrying on the comparison of financial and capital markets and their influences on the welfare state system in Japan and the United States. Our standpoints are based on the following understanding about the recent trends of welfare state system and its circumstance in both countries. Those are ; (1) since 1980s, financial liberalization, securitization, and globalization in financial markets has produced the new developments of the market economy accompanied with problems such as the increasing risks in the financial markets and the lack or contortion of capital formation. (2) these trends have also been accompanied with the problems include the structural changes of the welfare state systems which include the permeation of market mechanism not only in the traditional fields of income redistribution systems such as pension and the health insurance systems, but also the filed of housing, community development, agriculture, and the financial crisis management systems.
    Mainly through two international conferences held in 1994 and 1996, and through the books and discussion papers series of Otaru University, with cooperation of many scholars and researchers in Japan and the United States, our project have gotten the following common knowledge ; (1) the welfare state system should include the broader fields such as housing, community development, agriculture, and other areas related to social capital formation, as well as the traditional welfare system such as pension and health care systems, because some income-and resource reallocation by the public sectors could be recognized, (2) and in the period of apparent low growth and increasing fiscal deficit since 1980s, on one side, the traditional welfare state system accounted by special funds of public sectors where relatively apparent relations between cost-bearer and benefit-receiver exists has been forced to be restraint, but on the other side, in the broader welfare state system, however there have been existing the apparent evolution of the public sectors' intervention from the direct forms (direct subsidies, and direct loans) to indirect forms (financial guarantees, shift of responsibility of the policy from the central government to local governments, and even to private non-profit organizations, and privatization of government agencies, we saw also some adverse trends such as radical expansion of indirect public sectors' activities, and sudden fiscal burdens as the result of economic and financial risks. So we should conclude that at least at this time, welfare state system exists between the reverse pressures of easing fiscal burdens and avoiding the competitions with private entities, and growing needs of expanding the public sectors roles.

    2004  

     View Summary

    2003年末に、日独米英4カ国のファンド・マネージャーの行動に関するアンケート調査を実施した。 本研究は、このサーベイデータを用いて各国機関投資家のファンド・マネージメント行動の違いを検証し、検証結果をコーポレート・ガバナンスの視点から分析するこことを目的とする国際共同研究である。ドイツ・ハノーバー大学のKukas Mekhoff教授との国際共同研究プロジェクトの一環として進めている。当初、4カ国を対象に比較研究を行う目的であったが、英国のサーベー・データが不十分であるために、日・独・米3カ国に絞って、投資視野、herding, 顧客からのプレッシャーへの弱さ、情報の依存効果など、機関投資家行動の違いに関するノンパラメトリック検定を行った。 暫定的な結果によると、日本の機関投資家は独米に比べて、herding、投資視野の短期性、顧客からのプレッシャー感応性の面で際立っており、企業評価がゆがめられている可能性が示唆されるという、暫定的な結果が得られている。2005年3月のハノーバー大学およびハンブルグ国際経済研究所(HWWA)への出張において、この結果を検討しさらに分析を精緻化して、論文にまとめる手順について意見交換を行うと同時に、ファンド・マネージメントの背景となる各国の機関投資家のガバナンス行動をとりまく制度的環境の違いを明らかにするために、英国およびドイツにおいてコーポレート・ガバナンスに関連する資料収集を行った。研究成果は、統計分析にかけたのち、英文でまとめた。
