Support through Financing
Strengthening Social impact finance Efforts
JBIC's Fourth Medium-term Business Plan identified the addressing of "global issues toward realizing sustainable development for the global economy and society" as its first key focus area.
Through Social impact finance, we are providing support for projects that assist resolving social issues to realize sustainable growth.
Since the formulation and publication of the JBIC Guidelines for Confirmation of Environmental and Social Considerations in 1999, JBIC has ensured that the financing of its relevant projects have been subject to the environmental and social impact considerations required under such guidelines.
