Its Sustainability Policy defines the principles via which ORIX Bank will incorporate sustainability into its business activities.

Basic Approach

  • In order to contribute to a sustainable society, ORIX Bank will clearly grasp society’s needs by entering into dialogue with diverse stakeholders, including customers, business partners, employees, shareholders, society, and administrative bodies. Through its business activities, it will endeavor to resolve societal issues.
  • ORIX Bank will provide financing services to industry, which is the foundation on which a sustainable society is built; at the same time, it will provide products and services that contribute to the resolution of issues faced both by its customers and by society.

The world is faced with diverse environmental and societal issues, ranging from the depletion of global resources and climate change to social inequalities and anxiety.
