At the Mizuho Financial Group, "Mizuho's Corporate Identity" has been formulated as the concept that forms the basis of all activities conducted as Mizuho. "The Mizuho Code of Conduct" is positioned as the ethical rule to be complied with in implementing "Mizuho's Corporate Identity," and serves as the foothold for the various decisions that will be made on business administration and operation.

Mizuho recognizes the importance of outlining its stance toward CSR initiatives with respect to its stakeholders. At the same time, it acknowledges the critical need for employees to pursue initiatives that reflect considerable sensitivity toward CSR in the conduct of their duties. Guided by the Mizuho Vision in the Mizuho's Corporate Identity, Mizuho indicates its definition and stance regarding CSR in its "Basic Policy on CSR Initiatives", and sets forth uniform policies and standards for the group regarding the environment, compliance, contributing to society, and other aspects of CSR.

Basic Approach toward CSR Initiatives

Mizuho defines its CSR activities as follows. CSR initiatives entail the practice of corporate activities that reflect an unwavering awareness toward the importance of Mizuho's social responsibilities and public mission as a global financial group, take into consideration the expectations of stakeholders, and thoroughly fulfill its responsibilities toward society, which provide the basis for its existence.

In addition, recognizing that CSR initiatives help contribute to the sustainable development of society and provide the platform for creating and advancing corporate value, Mizuho has positioned CSR initiatives as a pillar of its corporate conduct.

In implementing its CSR activities, Mizuho has identified the strengthening efforts to promote businesses that contribute to the sustainable development of society, reinforce the group's foundations that underpin activities in line with society's expectations, and promote social contribution activities that take into consideration the needs of local regions and society, as three initiative policies to address over medium– and long–term. Moreover, Mizuho has put forward the group's annual initiative policy that helps to crystallize activities in each of three initiative policies. Based on this policy, group companies formulate measures that take into consideration individual business strategies while working in unison to achieve the group's overarching CSR goals.

Also, to pursue CSR activities that are based on a global perspective, Mizuho participates in key CSR initiatives both in Japan and overseas. For example, Mizuho is a signatory to "The United Nations Global Compact" and "The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI)" and follows the "The Principles for Financial Action towards a Sustainable Society."
