Environmental Accounting (Mitsui Fudosan Office Building Division)
Cost of Environmental Conservation
Investments in fiscal 2017 totaled ¥344,334,000 mainly for updating air-conditioning systems and installing new air-conditioning control equipment.
Spending during the fiscal year of ¥1,205,406,000 was primarily for the maintenance of equipment for managing energy usage in the operations of building facilities, and for cleaning medium-performance filters. Moreover, management costs totaled ¥95,990,000 which included efforts to ensure compliance with the Energy Conservation Law and the Tokyo Metropolitan government’s environmental regulations. A cumulative total of ¥14,452,862,000 has been spent on environmental conservation since the base fiscal year.
Calculation of Environmental Accounting
- Investment and expenses required for environmental conservation were calculated in the environmental conservation costs. In addition, fiscal 2002 is regarded as the base fiscal year for comparisons/calculations.
- Expenses for environmental conservation costs include depreciation allowance for equipment, etc. invested in.
- Among environmental conservation costs related to administrative activities, expenses for conducting occupational knowledge training and other expenses are posted.
- The basis for conversion into CO2 with respect to environmental conservation effects is as follows. In order to compare with the base fiscal year, the numerical values for the fiscal year under review and the previous fiscal year were also calculated on the following basis.
- CO2 emissions coefficient (other than electricity):
The CO2 emissions coefficient indicated in the Enforcement Ordinance of the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures (revised in December 2002).
- CO2 emissions coefficient (electricity):
The CO2 emissions coefficient indicated in the Enforcement Ordinance of the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures (revised in December 2002) (the numerical value for general electric power suppliers is used).
- CO2 emissions coefficient (other than electricity):
- Targeted properties of the fiscal year under review differ from those of the previous fiscal year and base fiscal year.

In overall terms, environmental load indices for fiscal 2017 were unchanged from the previous fiscal year. Compared with the base fiscal year (fiscal 2002), indicators across-the-board are improving.
Looking at electricity, electricity usage per unit of floor area at managed properties, 6,770 kWh of electricity was used per 1,000 m2 in fiscal 2017, a decrease of 4,170 kWh per 1,000 m2 (down approximately 38%) compared with the base fiscal year, which was 10,940 kWh per 1,000 m2. This represents an improvement in electricity usage per unit of floor area.
For water, water usage per unit of floor area at managed properties, 40.15 tons of water was used per 1,000 m2, a reduction of 37.81 tons per 1,000 m2 (down approximately 48%) compared with 77.96 tons per 1,000 m2 in the base fiscal year.
From a recycling versus total waste volume perspective, the ratio was 71.32% in fiscal year under review compared with 44.77% in the base fiscal year, for a 26.55 percentage point improvement in the recycling ratio. Moreover, turning to waste volume per unit of floor area, the amount of waste generated per unit of floor area declined to 0.63 tons per 1,000 m2 in the fiscal year under review, a reduction of 0.56 tons per 1,000 m2 (down approximately 47%) or a decline of around one-half compared with the base fiscal year.
