BHI Japan researches pathways towards a flourishing future society that balance economics and well-being.

Japan, a country at the forefront of the aging society challenge, can serve as a model case. We conduct analysis and provide valuable insights to the global community, which may face similar issues in the future.

We are also conducting research on issues that will be essential to identifying pathways to flourishing societies, such as advanced technologies and well-being management. By leveraging BCG’s network, we contribute to solving societal issues through collaboration with industry, government, and academia.
