Jiazhong Fang, PetroChina, "Sustainable Development of the Petroleum Industry"
Climate change has become more and more critical to the survival of humans. If there is no appropriate control of the total greenhouse gas emissions over the next 10-20 years, emissions will drive global temperatures to rise 1.5-2oC. Impacts related to climate change can be found in many segments of society such as human health, agriculture and food security, water supply, transportation, etc. These same areas also impact the survival of the petroleum industry. In his research, Fang has analyzed different scenarios about future clean energy implementation and emission reduction. In this presentation, he shares potential solutions of the sustainable development of the petroleum industry.
Ryoji Miyawaki, AAKEL Technologies, "Technology to Realize Decarbonization"
Hiro Nishinaka, Ishin Co., Ltd. "The State of Japanese Corporate Venture Capitals in the Silicon Valley"
Hayato Watanabe, Hamamatsu Iwata Shinkin Bank, "The World of Japanese Manufacturing SMEs that Support Japan as a Manufacturing Powerhouse"
Japan's global market share is rapidly shrinking. As a regional financial institution, the Hamamatsu Iwata Shinkin Bank focuses on supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a majority of their customers in the vehicle engine parts industry. There is an increasing possibility that the pyramid of parts supply centering on automobiles will collapse in the near future. In such an era, it will be necessary for Japanese manufacturing SMEs to change their way of business in order to survive. In his research, Watanabe shares his experience of proof of concept in Silicon Valley and provides suggestions on how Japanese manufacturing SMEs need to progress their business to expand their market share.
Kosuke Yokota, Future Corporation, "Success Factors of FinTech in Japan"
