Tokyo, April 1, 2019

Today Nippon Life Insurance Company has become a signatory of the Equator Principles.

Nippon Life initiated full-scale engagement in overseas project finance in 2017. When making project finance decisions, Nippon Life recognizes that environmental and social factors can take on heightened importance given that projects that involve large-scale development could potentially have major impacts on the natural environment and local communities. With this in mind, Nippon Life has decided to adopt the Equator Principles.

To date, 95 international financial institutions in 37 countries are signatories of the Equator Principles.
