Basic policies / Sustainability committee

The Investment Corporation and the Asset Management Company aim to contribute to the sustainable development of society (sustainability) by addressing environmental and social issues through investment and management of real estate that takes the environment, society and governance (ESG) into consideration. The environment surrounding the real estate in which the Investment Corporation invests and manages changes from day to day including changes in housing conditions due to diversification of lifestyles, rapid aging of the population, and increased demand for accommodations by foreigners due to the shift to major industrialization of tourism. As a result of changes in natural environments and diversification of society as well as those changes, we recognize that the challenges to be tackled are complex and diverse. The Investment Corporation and the Asset Management Company have established a “Sustainability Policy” and are promoting Initiatives for Sustainability with the aim of solving as many issues as possible and contributing to the realization of sustainable societies. In addition, we have separately established an “Environmental Policy” as a policy for dealing with environmental issues, and we are focusing on our efforts on real estate investment and management that takes the environment into consideration. We also aim to contribute to the achievement of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) by sharing the Kenedix Group's Materiality (Material issues) established by Kenedix, the parent company of the Asset Management Company. In promoting Initiatives for sustainability, the Investment Corporation will place importance on dialogue with investors as well as various stakeholders related to the Investment Corporation and the Asset Management Company through management properties and strive to disclose appropriate information.
