ESGMizuho Issues €750 Million Green Bond to Fund Low Carbon Society Projects

Mizuho, a Tokyo-based banking and financial services company, has issued a €750 million (USD$820 million) green bond, with the proceeds earmarked to finance projects supporting the transition to a low-carbon society. This issuance aligns with Mizuho’s goal, announced last month, to facilitate JPY 100 trillion ($USD 700 billion) in sustainable finance between 2019 and 2030, including JPY 50 trillion dedicated to environment and climate change-related finance. The green bond issuance is part of Mizuho’s broader sustainable finance efforts, which are integral to its medium-term business plan focused on personal well-being and sustainability. Climate change response is a central component of this plan. The funds raised will be channeled through Mizuho Bank to finance green projects, contributing to a more sustainable society.
