In the sustainability section of our website, we endeavor to deepen our communication with stakeholders by reporting on the results of activities in accordance with our approach toward sustainability as well as related policies and plans. In an effort to further promote sustainability, Mizuho is disclosing information on its related activities in a systematic and comprehensive manner.
Mizuho issued an Integrated Report, which effectively combines the content of its CSR Report and Annual Review effective from fiscal 2015. In preparing this Integrated Report, Mizuho referred to the guidelines set out under the International Integration Reporting Framework.
The CSR Report and the Annual Review were integrated into a single Integrated Report in fiscal 2015.
Besides financial information, the Integrated Report contains information regarding such subjects as corporate identity, corporate strategies, and ESG (environment, society, and governance). The report presents information on Mizuho's efforts related to strategies, governance, corporate culture, and other subjects along with information on how those activities are leading to the creation of value for Mizuho and society over the short–, medium–, and long–term. It is edited with the intention of providing stakeholders with concise and clear explanations in a story–like form.
The Task Force on Climate–related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is a task force led by representatives of the private sector, established in December 2015 based on recommendations from the Financial Stability Board in order to enhance the availability of corporate information related to climate change. It issued its final recommendations report in 2017. At Mizuho we support the intent and aims of the TCFD Recommendations and are working to engage in initiatives and enhance disclosures in accordance with the recommendations.
