APR 21, 2023 - 6:58 am
Mitsubishi HC Capital America has dedicated additional resources aimed at helping clients meet their own clean energy goals through its integrated sustainable development group, which has team members based across the United States and Canada that actively work to help companies throughout North America advance their own strategies through financing, investing and other services.
“Intently focusing and prioritizing sustainability and the environment is a focused priority for our company,” Craig Weinewuth, president and CEO of Mitsubishi HC Capital America, said. “Climate change knows no borders and we want to be the leading solutions provider to our partners and clients looking to reduce their own carbon footprints. The recently announced merger provides the opportunity for us to combine our teams across the United States and Canada to better leverage our collective knowledge and expertise, and to continue delivering customized and innovative solutions for our clients.”
As a collective group, employees from across the organization are joining together; with Tom Canepa, John Critelli, Jon Davies and Russ Yanaga focusing on mobility; and Christine Chui and Tom Waters focusing on clean technology and energy efficiency. The group will place emphasis on solutions for clean energy projects directed at producing power with a lower carbon emission. Another key area of focus will be mobility solutions for the transportation sector, specifically capital for decarbonizing Class 1 to Class 8 trucks and trailers, including charging infrastructure, as-a-service solutions and alternative fuels.
“Sustainability is among the top three priorities for most companies, so we’re eager and excited to align our company mission with that of our clients,” Stéphane Arsenault, senior vice president and newly appointed sustainable development group leader of Mitsubishi HC Capital America, said. “Our combined solutions platform across the United States and Canada enable us to provide a comprehensive suite of products and services for clients operating in either or both countries. Our unique cross-border skillset makes it easier for businesses looking to improve their own environmental impact.”
Within each of its focus areas, the sustainable development group will collaborate with a team of external partners to help companies in the design and implementation of programs, structures and software to meet sustainability goals.
“This is truly more than financing,” Arsenault said. “With our partner network, located across all states and provinces, we work with clients to help them navigate the complex range of rebates, credits and subsidy programs available at the federal, state and provincial level.
“Our commitment and the importance of clean energy solutions and sustainability comes into great focus as we approach Earth Day. We agree that sustainability is the path to prosperity for humanity and businesses alike. As we grow, we will expand into other areas of sustainability, always looking to expand our partner network and furthering our commitment.”
