Creating an environmentally friendly society

Promotion of Solar Power Generation Business

Since 2011 we have focused on three models to actively advance our solar power generation business: (1) solar panel installations via owner investments; (2) wholesaling electricity generated from solar panels installed on rooftops leased from owners; and (3) the design and execution of a mega-solar project on a vacant site.
As of March 31, 2017, the total installed generation capacity stands at 182.4 MW, with installations on the rooftops of 12,987 buildings. We plan to move forward with solar power generation initiatives as a way to support safe, sustainable energy generation.

Reducing Our Environmental Impact via Business Activities

We are working to reduce the environmental burden of our business activities. In fiscal 2016, like in fiscal 2015, we implemented a "Cool Biz" dress code for summer and an Eco-green cards program, executed an initiative to reuse discarded materials, added more minicars to our fleet, and converted more facilities to LED lighting.
The head office monitors electricity usage, and we continue to advance ambitious initiatives in recognition of the large size of the impacts of our business activities on the environment.

Reducing Our Environmental Impact via Business Activities

The solar power generation systems we installed on roofs of properties we manage reduced CO2 emissions by an estimated 55,000t CO2, and within that, the systems installed on company-owned properties reduced CO2 emissions by an estimated 19,000t CO2. The reduction via company-managed properties is equivalent to the amount of CO2 absorbed per year by about six million Japanese cedar trees (assumes a forty-year life span for Japanese cedar trees), and the reduction via company-owned buildings is equivalent to the amount of CO2 absorbed per year by about two million Japanese cedar trees. (Our conversion estimates are based on Forestry Agency calculations).

Paper Reuse

We continue with attempts to reuse documents in storage that no longer need to be retained. In fiscal 2016, we reused important documents that had been kept at the head office and Osaka office to make toilet paper and this yielded 38,972 rolls. This equates to one month's toilet paper for the Group's entire workforce.
