The Nomura Real Estate Group recognizes that building and infrastructure deterioration and obsolescence, reduced urban functions, and increased natural disasters are important social issues. It contributes to the realization of the safety and security of customers and local communities through the provision of products and services based on appropriate quality management and sustainable urban development. It also promotes the creation of work and living environments in which business and daily living can continue even in times of emergency.
The safety and security of Group design and construction are overseen by the officer responsible for quality management and architectural design. Under this officer, the general manager of the Quality Control Department of the Residential Development Division and the General Manager of the Engineering Management Department of the Commercial Real Estate Business Division oversee the management of workplace quality control for housing and non-housing projects, respectively. 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 annual targets and monitors progress regarding improvement in safety and security across design and construction, operation and management, and response to disasters.
