Preservation and Utilization of the Natural Environment (Preservation of Biodiversity)

Increasing Greenery (Creation of Greenery)

Along with making efforts to plant greenery in accordance with the special characteristics of the region and properties, efforts are also being made in consideration of protection of cities’ valuable existing trees and forests and ecosystem networks.

At “Diver City Tokyo Plaza,” the outside facilities, roof, and walls, together accounting for 40% of the site area, have been made green and became a ratio of greenness that surpasses the green standards of Tokyo and Koto Ward.
Additionally, the city'slargest rooftop rental farm land of approximately 900m2 was installed with the concepts of “seeing,” “knowing,” and “feeling” farming. This aims to create communities for people who live in cities to realize the enjoyment and difficulty of farming through the cycle from “producing” to “consumption.”

At the “Yokohama Mitsui Building,” by forming continuous green spaces by proactively greening (greening ratio of 21.8%, four times what is normal) the adjacent Tochinoki roadside and Katabira riverside, efforts are being made to form an ecosystem network in which the surrounding region'slarge green lands and water areas become one. Along with understanding the potential vegetation of the region and taking salt tolerance into account, this vegetation plan takes in food plants that are food for birds and insects. Further, by incorporating plant life from high trees to herbs in the structure, an environment that provides nesting sites and hiding places for creatures is created.
