Community Involvement and Development

Policy

The Mitsui Fudosan Group is working to coexist and collaborate with local communities and build new communities in accordance with the distinctive characteristics of each area and other factors based on our philosophy of coexisting in harmony with society, linking diverse values, and achieving a sustainable society.

Furthermore, we have put in place a Policy for Social Contribution Initiatives to ensure that each Group company and department follows a common and uniform direction. Based on this policy, each and every member of the Group looks to contribute to society in four core areas: the global environment, local communities, culture and education, and international exchange.

The Mitsui Fudosan Group's Policy for Social Contribution Initiatives(Formulated March 27, 2013)

In line with our Group Statement that focuses on efforts to bring affluence and comfort to urban living, we actively contribute to society by revitalizing and creating urban areas while engaging in various activities from a global perspective, to provide affluence and comfort with the aim of achieving the sustained development of society and the economy.

  1. We are primarily involved in four areas: the global environment, local communities, culture and education, and international exchange.
  2. We strive to achieve harmony with local communities, and
  3. We proactively make use of our own resources, including properties, networks, and personnel.

Management System

The ESG Management Committee under the ESG Promotion Committee, which is headed by the Representative Director, President and CEO, was established to promote social contributions throughout the Mitsui Fudosan Group.

The ESG Management Committee formulates the principles and policies that define the social contribution activities of Mitsui Fudosan and the Mitsui Fudosan Group. It also keeps up to date the social contribution targets, objectives and plans of each division and Group companies while monitoring and evaluating their progress toward targets and plans.

The Social Contribution Activity Policy was created in March 2013 to serve as common ground for various activities to realize abundance and affluence in society from a global perspective.
