Environmental Conservation through Our Core Business
Funds for Corporations
We have prepared various funding systems to meet the fundraising needs of businesses that undertake environmental conservation activities and install environmentally friendly equipment.
SRI Fund for Company Pensions
Resona Bank has previously established its “Global SRI” fund, which invests in ESG-friendly* foreign companies, etc., aimed for company pension funds. There are few other SRI funds that invest in foreign stocks, aimed at company pensions in Japan; thus our Global SRI provides a wider range of choices for pension investments.
- *ESG: Abbreviation of Environmental, Social, Corporate Governance
