The Mizuho group has continually supported the growth of Mizuho Leasing through collaborative efforts with the leasing company, and by combining the functions of both parties we have successfully created new solutions that extend beyond the traditional boundaries of the leasing business, such as realizing the supply of renewable energy from one of Japan's largest-scale low-voltage, distributed photovoltaic facilities.
The Mizuho group is committed to further expanding these kinds of initiatives and promoting ongoing collaboration with Mizuho Leasing through its expansive business network both in Japan and throughout the world, co-creating value that contributes to improving environmental and social sustainability.
