"Only 13% of Japan's listed companies mention climate change in their filings, for instance, compared with 44% of top American companies.....Information leaks and cyberattacks were cited by 56% of Nikkei components, as opposed to 79% of top U.S. companies, though Japanese companies have become more willing to acknowledge risks on this front. Potential impact on brand image was mentioned by about 20% of the Japanese companies, versus 65% of the American top 100."
