For more information on the promotion of each materiality issue, please refer to the April 26 news release, Nomura Real Estate Group establishes a sustainability policy showing a vision of 2050 to achieve growth and realize a sustainable society.

About the Sustainability Policy determination process

Since August 2020, the Group has been formulating a Sustainability Policy (for 2050) and considering what issues to prioritize (materiality) until 2030.
During the determination process, we held in-house workshops to gather opinions on such issues as "what kind of value to provide." We also collected opinions from management through a "materiality candidate questionnaire" and from various stakeholders outside the company through similar questionnaires.

After analyzing the opinions, we synchronized and linked the results with our medium-to long-term business plan and positioned the plan as a way to realize our ideal corporate image through the business. Particularly important items were defined as priority issues (materiality).

Approximately 460 people from inside and outside the company participated in the determination process.

183 mid-level and young employees in the Group
214 management employees
Over 20 members of director and executive Officer(Sustainability Committee members, etc.)
About 40 people in total,
including sustainability professionals,
institutional investors, business partners and customers

During the development process, many people expressed ideas and opinions about creating new value in the areas of spiritual wealth, happiness, caring for people, and providing healthy and comfortable lifestyles. They shared common feelings and empathy for people.

Based on these results, we will position the materiality of "diversity & inclusion" and "human rights" related to "societies and employees" as the foundation of our Sustainability Policy. We will also promote initiatives that contribute to "decarbonization," "biodiversity," and "circular design" related to "climate change and natural environment" in our businesses.
