The amount of CO2 emitted from the construction and operation of buildings is said to account for approximately 40% of all CO2 emissions in Japan, including indirect emissions. In addition, as humans spend a long time indoors, the indoor environment affects the health and productivity of the occupants. Given the significant impact of real estate property on the three aspects of the environment, society, and the economy, integrated initiatives for achieving the SDGs are thought to be highly beneficial for improving the sustainability of the three aspects.

The Group aims to promote and increase properties that give consideration to the environment, such as cities and buildings with high energy and resource efficiency and buildings that contribute to improving production efficiency. We will advance initiatives that contribute to increasing property values through features such as high environmental performance that reduce risk and enhance income.

Challenges for Achieving the goals

  • Making the environmental performance of properties visible
  • Making the added value of environmentally friendly properties visible
  • Increasing awareness in the real estate market about the added value of environmentally friendly properties
  • Expanding corporate initiatives toward creating added value

Initiatives for Solving the Challenges

  • Support acquisition of environmental performance certifications, such as CASBEE for Real Estate and CASBEE for Urban Development.
  • Support the realization of environmentally friendly construction through construction consulting and assistance to help subsidy applicants qualify.
  • Promote and raise awareness of environmentally friendly properties through committees and lectures.
