Major Human Rights Issues
Identifying and Assessing Human Rights Issues
In establishing and revising our Human Rights Policy, we identified potential human rights risks in our business activities and assessed their severity and likelihood of occurrence. Based on the results, we identified priority items to address in an effort to enhance our measures. We will continue to conduct periodic inspections and revisions in line with changes in the business environment both in and outside Mizuho.
