Jul 03, 2023

TOKYO, Japan - July 3, 2023 - ORIX Bank Corporation (“ORIX Bank”) today announced that it has executed a sustainability-linked loan (“SLL”) to &Do Holdings Co., Ltd. (“&Do HLD”). This is the first time for ORIX Bank to execute an SLL.

SLL is a financing method that offers better terms such as lower interest rates, depending on the customer’s progress in accomplishing economic activities that lead to the realization of a sustainable society, aiming to encourage customers to engage in those activities. In collaboration with six regional financial institutions across Japan, ORIX Bank has executed a ¥2.7 billion SLL to &Do HLD, utilizing the trust capability of ORIX Bank.

&Do HLD operates a House-Leaseback*1 Business and a Reverse Mortgage Guarantee*2 Business. In this SLL, the goal is to contribute to the growing needs of the aging population for funds for life after retirement, and if the goal is not achieved, &Do HLD will donate a designated amount of money to an organization that aims to provide welfare for the elderly.
This program has received a second opinion*3 from Rating and Investment Information, Inc. (“R&I”), stating that it complies with the principles and guidelines for SLL.

In its Sustainability Policy*4, ORIX Bank has defined “responding to an aging society” as one of its priority issues, and is promoting loans that will have a positive impact on society and the environment. ORIX Bank will continue to contribute to solving social issues by supporting corporate activities that lead to the realization of a sustainable society, such as measures to address climate change.
