Environmental Management System

Basic approach

Mitsubishi HC Capital has established the Sustainability Committee as an advisory body to the Executive Committee to promote sustainability-conscious management throughout the Group. We position environmental issues, most notably climate change, as one of our most important management issues and formulate and implement environmental plans accordingly.

ISO 14001 certification

Based on ISO 14001 standards, Mitsubishi HC Capital Inc. introduced and has been operating its Environmental Management System (EMS) for approximately 20 years and improving environmental performance continually since receiving third-party certification in 2001.
To formulate and implement a medium to long-term management strategy in a timely manner by accurately understanding the global and social environmental changes, the Company decided to shift EMS to self-declaration* of conformity in December, 2023.
Incidentally, MHC Reuse Services Corporation (formerly Hitachi Capital Services Co., Ltd.), and Mitsubishi HC Capital UK PLC (formerly Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC) have been certified under the ISO 14001:2015 by third-party certification.

  • self-declaration is one of the formal options according to the ISO 14001 standard, to evaluate and satisfy requirement of ISO international standards by itself with its own responsibility, without depending on the third-party certification.

Compliance with environmental laws and regulations

As a part of its compliance activities, the Mitsubishi HC Capital Group ensures that all executives and employees fully comply with applicable laws and regulations, including those related to the environment, and carries out regular compliance checks.
