Relations with Local Communities

Basic Concept

We regard our connections and relationships of trust with all stakeholders as an important form of capital for value creation. We believe it is the Company’s mission to create new value for society through the various initiatives that we undertake together with our stakeholders. We will continue to promote these initiatives, and build solid relationships with all of our stakeholders.

Relations with Local Communities

Under our Code of Conduct of “We will establish a good relationship with the community and actively engage in social contribution activities as a good citizen”, as a real estate company fully grounded in the local community, we are continuously and actively engaged in local contribution activities such as donations, participation in community clean-up activities, and support for local events. We believe such steady contribution activities in local communities help to invigorate the areas, which will also lead to the Company’s growth.
