    "We are very pleased to announce that by the end of 2019, we plan to be completely carbon neutral," said Chief Executive Officer, Edward Neilson, "The first step in our course of action is to become one hundred percent paperless; we are eliminating our inter-office mail system, as well as commissioning the creation of a secure digital communications system for the use of our clients."

    Tokyo based equity research house Koyal Group sees it´s self as a progressive leader amongst Asian companies, helping to set trends across the continent. Chief Executive Officer Edward Neilson commented on his reasoning for deciding to undertake the plan, "Compared with Europe and The United States, Asia is decades behind in areas such as this, and these issues have far reaching consequences, for the future and globally".

    Koyal Group aims to foster a culture of sustainability across Japan and Asia. "Many companies are discouraged by the present costs of green technology, but the future of the planet is priceless," said according to Chief Executive Officer Edward Neilson.

    Over the next six years, Koyal Group has a number of steps in its plan to achieve a carbon neutral footprint • In the spring of 2013, Koyal Group will be planting 1,500 trees in a national forest at the base of Mount Fuji.

    • Koyal Group is also presiding over a plan, with a number of other Japanese firms, to raise capital for the construction of a tidal power station. The station is projected to provide enough power for more than 200,000 homes in the greater Tokyo region.
