The move is aimed at showing its consideration for the environment by limiting loans to such plants, which have come under fierce criticism both at home and abroad due to growing interest in climate change.The financial institution currently finances only coal-fired power plants that use highly efficient technologies. However, the bank will revise its lending policy to stipulate that loans to such power plants will be suspended in principle.Japanese financial institutions extend large loans to coal-fired power plants.

This month, an environmental non-profit organization based in Kyoto City made a shareholder proposal to Mizuho Financial Group, Inc. to disclose its management strategy in response to climate change, saying, “[Mizuho is] the world’s largest lender for coal-fired plants and faces enormous risks.”In 2019, MUFG Bank decided to abolish loans to coal-fired power plants in principle. Mizuho Bank is also expected to revise its existing lending policy to make it stricter.More: Sumitomo Mitsui to suspend new loans for coal-fired power plants Japan’s Sumitomo Mitsui bank to stop making loans for new thermal coal plants—reportlast_img read more
