Creating a greener, cleaner future

Mitsubishi HC Capital UK is transitioning to become a more sustainable business with climate focus as a priority and has set targets to reduce its GHG emissions including formal Science Based Targets (SBT) and internal targets.

By embedding a culture of sustainability, setting clear pathways with targets, actions and measurement, and engaging our colleagues in our ambitions, we believe we can make a meaningful contribution to the global aspiration for net zero by 2050.

We’re shaping the future of low-emission mobility as a leading advocate of zero-emission vehicles. In partnership with GRIDSERVE, we’re helping to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles powered by solar energy.

In line with our  environmental policy, our business is evolving to direct the flow of finance to sectors of the economy that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We’re creating a brighter future for tomorrow by developing innovative partnerships, supporting businesses that are seeking to deliver sustainable change.
