Environmental business initiatives
Promoting environmental friendliness in society as a whole through our business activities
The Group believes it is important to promote environment–friendliness in society as a whole through the financial products and services it offers as part of its core business based on the knowledge and insight of a global financial group. From this perspective, individual group companies are developing businesses that contribute to the environment according to the nature of their own operations.
Broadly speaking, Mizuho's environmental businesses can be divided into three categories. The first is "Environmental Finance" to support funds to companies that will promote environment–friendliness and businesses that will contribute to a reduction in the environmental burden. The second is consulting, surveys and research using the rich experience and advanced knowledge of the Group, centered on the think tank Mizuho Information & Research Institute, which has special strengths in the environmental field. The third is the development and sales of environment–friendly investment products. Looking ahead, we intend to engage in wide–ranging environmental business centered on these three sectors.
In addition, Mizuho Financial Group issues green bond to promote green finance.
