Aiming to realize a sustainable society

The environment surrounding us is constantly undergoing significant changes. In particular, in the upcoming decade a new ecosystem is likely to emerge, mainly from new industry crossover collaborations and cooperation that will be triggered by drastic changes in the social structure, including the digital transformation, aging of society, population decline, and intensification of global competition.

The DBJ Group, constantly picking up on changes in society and the needs of customers, implements sustainability management that aims to generate both economic and social value through the supply of financial services, with the entire Group contributing to the realization of a sustainable society.
