Green Bond Issuance

ORIX raises funds based on a framework developed by international organizations such as the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) to finance projects that contribute significantly to the environment and society. In January 2020, the Company issued its first public green bond* (unsecured bond) in the domestic market after obtaining a second opinion on eligibility from the ESG evaluation agency Sustainalytics.

ORIX has identified renewable energy, clean transportation, and green buildings as three key business areas appropriate for the use of proceeds from our green bond issuance. In addition to diversifying our funding, this green bond issuance helps create a more sustainable society through funding sustainable business initiatives.

  • Green bonds are bonds issued by companies/organizations to raise funds for projects that have environmentally positive effects.
