ORIX – Contributing to a Sustainable Society
Sustainability at ORIX
Since our founding, contributing to society by creating new value through our business activities has been fundamental to ORIX. We believe that it is important for a company to make a profit, but making a profit is not everything. Providing new value to society and being a company that is needed by society are also important, and the profit that results makes ORIX’s sustainable growth possible.
In addition, operating with an awareness of sustainability has become fundamental to the survival of companies amid constantly shifting economic, social and environmental conditions. These shifting conditions include dramatic changes in the natural environment due to climate change along with their related economic impacts as well as changes in society’s expectations regarding the relationship between companies and society.
Based on this thinking, ORIX strives to accurately assess and identify the opportunities and risks arising from economic, social and environmental changes in order to work with our stakeholders and community to contribute to the economic development and sustainable growth of the larger global community, and to incorporate those opportunities and risks into our corporate management.
Continuously Adding New Value to Society

We will proactively tackle social issues and

The resource ORIX will utilize to achieve this is its
“people”, which ORIX views as its greatest strength.
Our “people” will drive innovation via utilizing
their unique knowledge, skills, resilience, and
diverse values to contribute to society.
People are ORIX’s most important asset.
