As a corporate group that connects people, towns and communities to the future, we will realize lifestyles for which diverse backgrounds and values are respected, and will respect people’s dignity and basic human rights throughout our business activities to strengthen our Foundation for Sustainability Promotion and pursue co-creation initiatives that transcend organizations and business models.
The Sustainability Committee, which consists of Nomura Real Estate Holdings and Group company directors and other members, is chaired by the Nomura Real Estate Holdings president and Group CEO. It deliberates and decides policies and action plans focused on sustainability, including priority issues (materiality), and reports to the Board of Directors. It also monitors progress with regard to its targets. In addition, two subordinate organizations have been established under the committee to strengthen the foundations for co-creation. One is the Human Rights Subcommittee, led by the officer in charge of Group Diversity and Inclusion Management as supervisor, and the other is the Wellness and D&I Management Committee, chaired by the Nomura Real Estate Holdings president and Group CEO.
