Environmental initiatives

Target on energy consumption etc.,

The Asset Management Company has set long-term goals concerning reduction of the amount of energy used and other efforts for consumption in common areas of residential properties as shown below, and promotes initiatives leading to reduction of environmental burden while continuously monitoring its efforts.. 

(Residential Facility)

Items Reduction targets
Energy consumption 5 year(FY2019 through FY2023)/5% total reduction in intensity(Annual average of 1%)
 GHG emissions 5 year(FY2019 through FY2023)/5% total reduction in intensity(Annual average of 1%)
 Water use
5 year(FY2019 through FY2023)/To prevent increase in intensity
※Healthcare facilities will avoid increasing energy consumption and water usage over  5 years (FY2019-2023)/intensity basis

(Note 1) The fiscal year starts on April and end on March of the following year.
(Note 2) "Residential Facilities" indicates actual figures for common areas. 
(Note 3) "Comparison of the same conditions" compares the same properties owned from the baseline year to the target year. The amount of electricity related to antennas and other incidental equipment installed after the acquisition of the property is not taken into account.
(Note 4)" CO2 emissions figures" are calculated by the Asset Management Company using the substitute value for emissions coefficient for each electric power supplier announced by the Ministry of the Environment. 
(Note 5) Starting in fiscal 2019, Nursing and health facilities, which use more energy and other resources, have been included in the aggregate, resulting in an increase in energy and other resources consumption. Because a nursing and health facility uses medical and rehabilitation equipment and devices, it is expected to use more energy, etc. than senior home with nursing care.

Example of environmental initiatives

Example of environmental initiatives

■Installation of LED Lights in Common Area

KDR is making various efforts to conserve energy from the viewpoint of environmental consideration and cost reduction. One of our efforts is to reduce the cost of replacing light bulbs and electricity consumption by changing the lighting fixtures in common areas to LEDs as appropriate.

Green Lease
■Green Lease 
A green lease is where building owners and tenants collaborate to reach voluntary agreements with regards to energy saving and other measures to reduce environmental burdens of real estate as well as improvements of indoor environments through contracts, memorandums of understanding and such and implement the contents of these agreements.
          
Based on the green lease at the KDR-owned healthcare facility “TEN”, KDR conducted LED lighting implementation work for energy-saving at the KDR’s expense.  A certain part of the tenant’s benefits of reduction in electricity charges for the lighting equipment and bulb replacement costs resulting from such renovations are paid to KDR as green lease fees.

 
 
 
■Installation of share cycle station

 

KDR provides a part of the property as a rental cycle base for the purpose of providing services to residents and surrounding residents and reducing environmental impact.


Installation: 5 props

 

Remote Surveillance of Road Heating
■Remote Surveillance of Road Heating

ロードヒーティングの遠隔監視

We have installed remote surveillance system for road heating (snow melting equipment) at our three properties located in Sapporo. The installations have results in significant reduction in the fuel costs melting snow.

 

■Installing Secure Lockers for Deliveries

宅配ボックスの設置

Secure lockers for parcels eliminate the need for delivery companies to return to a property when a resident is not home the first time. This reduces transportation CO2 emissions and wasted working time for drivers.

Installation:119 lockers
Installation rate:96%

 

■Outlets for recharging electric cars

宅配ボックスの設置

Parking areas have outlets so that residents can easily recharge electric cars.



Installation: 3 props

 

■Posters for conservation of energy and water

省エネ推進ポスターの掲示

Putting up posters in common areas to urge tenants to consider the environment through conservation of energy and water
