Environmental Management System

Basic approach

Mitsubishi HC Capital has established the Sustainability Committee as an advisory body to the Executive Committee to lead 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.
Furthermore, based on the ISO 14001:2015 international standard for environmental management systems, we operate efficient and effective environmental management systems for four groups of divisions, namely, the sales, office-based, lease-up asset handling, and internal audit divisions. These systems are overseen by the general manager of the IT & Digital Transformation Division, who is also a member of the Sustainability Committee.

ISO 14001 certification

To ensure the achievement of environmental targets and promote ongoing improvement, since 2001, the following companies and divisions have been certified under the ISO 14001:2015 international standard for environmental management systems: Mitsubishi HC Capital (formerly Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Company Limited), the head office of MUL Business Company Limited, the Tokyo office of MUL Eco-Business Co., Ltd., MHC Reuse Services Corporation (formerly Hitachi Capital Services Co., Ltd.), and Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC in the United Kingdom (company names as of August 31, 2021).

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.

Environmental education

The Mitsubishi HC Capital Group strives to ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations related to its business activities, collect information about such laws and regulations, provide such information to stakeholders, and enhance its employees' understanding of environmental issues. To this end, we have established the following policy on environmental education and implement environmental education for all employees. In particular, at office-based divisions, we check paper and electricity usage and implement awareness-raising to encourage each department and office to find ways to reduce consumption.
