In recent years environmental awareness has started to penetrate the mindset of nearly everyone, and there has been mounting demand for reducing environmental impact in daily consumption and investment activities. Based on this need Mizuho develops and markets a diverse line of financial products that incorporate environmental considerations.

Development and Management of SRI Funds and Environment–Related Funds

Socially responsible investing has garnered attention as a way of investing in companies that takes into account not only financial factors like earnings and growth outlook but also corporate ethics, legal compliance and environmental issues.

DIAM and MHAM are promoting the development, establishment, and operation of such SRI funds and are making efforts to establish and operate environment–related funds.

For more information on SRI funds other than environment–related funds, please refer to the Other Initiatives.
