Awareness of Climate Change
We consider climate change to be a scientific fact as indicated in the Paris Agreement and the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report. We also recognize that climate change will disrupt natural environments and social structure, which will have a significant impact on our business.
Endorsement of TCFD
We endorse the ideas of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
Initiatives at Individual Properties
TRANSITION TO LED LIGHTING AND IMPROVED EFFICIENCY
We are considering switching to LED lighting and installing other energy-saving equipment at all properties and create regular opportunities to save energy by improving equipment efficiency.
- CONSIDERING USE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY
Given the increase in procurement costs, we are considering the use of on-site renewable energy as well as procuring renewable energy off-site through 100% renewable energy plan contracts.
- WATER-SAVING MEASURES
We have established a system for monthly monitoring of water usage and are also considering switching to water-saving fixtures when it is time for renewal.
- GREEN LEASES
In our lease agreements, we have made the “Green Lease Clause” standard not only for new leases but for lease renewals as well to work with tenants to reduce environmental impact.
