Environmental enlightenment for executives and employees: Environmental Campaign

Mizuho has conducted an Environmental Campaign for all the employees of the domestic Mizuho group with the aim of establishing a corporate culture to actively address environmentally friendly activities among employees and their family members.

In fiscal 2017, under the theme of measures against Climate Change saving electricity, Mizuho issued its Eco–Action Declaration to promote employee participation in familiar, everyday activities benefiting the environment.

We will continue similar enlightenment activities on an ongoing basis so that Mizuho's employees can take environment–friendly actions both at the office and at home.

Mizuho's Eco–Action Declaration

Under Mizuho's Eco–Action Declaration, employees pledge to be environmentally conscious in their everyday activities, and Mizuho undertakes to donate one tree seedling for every 20 employees participating in the Declaration.

In fiscal 2017, 12,656 employees pledged participation in activities regarding measures against Climate Change through the Declaration, and Mizuho donated 632 seedlings in total to greenery promotion areas including the Coastal forest restoration project* at the disaster–stricken areas in Natori city, Miyagi prefecture, and through group company branches to local schools and facilities.

  • *The ten–years project to support seedling farmers and their raising seedlings toward the coastal forest restoration in the tsunami disaster–hit area of Natori city, Miyagi prefecture.

Volunteers for forestry activities

With the object of preventing global warming and helping preserve biodiversity, Mizuho implements forest creation activities by planting and thinning the forests.

Since fiscal 2007, Mizuho employees have also been taking part in Tokyo Greenship Action, a Tokyo Metropolitan Government forest management program for thinning trees and clearing underbrush to conserve and create forests.

Mizuho employees and their families volunteer their time for participation in forest conservation activities, including thinning forests and planting trees in the Ome Kaminariki Forest environment conservation area in Ome city, Tokyo.
