■ The Philosophy of Mitsui Fudosan’s Urban Development Utilizing the “Power of Sports”

Sports not only improve the mental and physical health of people through actions such as “Doing,” “Watching” and “Supporting,” it also creates new connections and has the power to revitalize communities. For Mitsui Fudosan, whose Group Statement includes an aim for a community that brings affluence and comfort to urban living and targets creation of communities that get better as they age, sees sports as an important element for attractive urban development and promotes utilization of the “Power of Sports” in urban development.

Moreover, as the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 Gold Partner in the category of “Real Estate Development”, Mitsui Fudosan has created the slogan of “BE THE CHANGE” and seeks to change itself under the themes of “Communicating,” “Connecting” and “Accepting,” and to use urban development as a base that will create positive change in the people, communities and society that it aims to transform.

■ Mitsui Fudosan’s Slogan for 2020

The logo of BE THE CHANGE, which carries the meaning of each person bringing about their own change, has been designed with the motif of a “Wind” changing the world. The symbol painted in the two Mitsui Fudosan corporate colors conveys the image of a “Bird riding the wind and flying through the skies.” The slogan contains the philosophy of “If people change, they can change the world” for 2020 and beyond.
