Sustainability Determines the Value of a Company

 It is now becoming an important social responsibility of companies to take initiatives in solving social challenges directly faced by the world including those of poverty, education, health, and welfare. The key is to figure out how to create and maintain a sustainable society. Companies must therefore develop solutions to these challenges through their business and provide them to their customers. It is not an overstatement to say that nowadays, a company’s sustainability policies serve as the foundation of its corporate management.

Creating Our Future Through Six Materiality Topics

 Mizuho Leasing continuously strives to identify the initiatives we can take to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society and a brighter future. Through this process, we have identified six materiality topics (priority issues) after examining about 300 issues and analyzing their relevance to our business, level of impact on our future strategies, etc. The six materiality topics are: Contributing to a decarbonized society ; Contributing to a healthy and prosperous lifestyle; Contributing to the creation of social infrastructure that supports our lifestyle; Leading toward circular economy; Creating new value through technology; and Creating a society and workplace where everyone can thrive. Through our efforts in solving these challenges through our business, we will continue to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society.

The Actions of Each Person Impact the World.
Changing Society through Interconnectedness

 There are unique sustainability initiatives that only we, as a leasing company with a long and extensive experience, can promote. To make them happen, it is important for each Mizuho Leasing member to thoroughly understand the importance of these initiatives and work on them.
Mizuho Leasing’s vision is to become a creator of a sustainable society. And this is not something for far out into the future. The actions of each member spread throughout a company. And the actions of each company spread throughout the world. We therefore continue to work hard every day to create a sustainable society.
