The Nomura Real Estate Group recognizes that climate change, the depletion of natural resources, water shortages, and the collapsing of ecosystems are important social issues. It contributes to the realization of a sustainable society through environmentally friendly urban development, including energy saving and low-carbon initiatives as well as the use of renewal energy and appropriate utilization of resources. It also complies with environmental laws, ordinances, and regulations, and promotes appropriate environmental management.
We are taking measures to improve group-wide environmental management under the leadership of Nomura Real Estate Holdings president and Group CEO.
In addition, the Sustainability Committee, which comprises Nomura Real Estate Holdings and Group company directors and others and is chaired by the Nomura Real Estate Holdings president and Group CEO, deliberates on and decides related policies and action plans. The Sustainability Committee sets environmental targets and monitors progress for environmental management, climate change, efficient use of water resources, consideration for biodiversity, appropriate resource use and pollution prevention.
Furthermore, an environmental subcommittee has been established as the Sustainability Committee’s subordinate organization under the supervision of the officer responsible for quality management and architectural design. The subcommittee consists of members from business units related to environmental themes and holds meetings as needed. In fiscal 2020, it held two meetings to mainly discuss the reduction of CO2 emissions and the use of renewable energy, which led to company-wide initiatives.
