ESG at the Mitsui Fudosan Group

Declarations to Society and Participation in International Initiatives

Participation in the United Nations Global Compact

The Group supports and signed the UN Global Compact (UNGC), which comprises 10 principles relating to human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. Further, based on Group management’s commitment, we have participated in its local network in Japan called the Global Compact Network Japan (GCNJ) and have been conducting our business in consideration of its 10 principles.

In 2001, we established a Group Environmental Policy, and we have helped curb global warming by creating buildings and neighborhoods which conserve energy and have low greenhouse gas emissions, and we have also made efforts in areas such as prevention of environmental pollution, reduction of waste, and conservation of water and biodiversity. As a corporate group supporting office buildings, housing, and other infrastructure necessary for daily life, we will fulfill our social responsibility at an even higher level by making even greater efforts in the future in areas such as environmental conservation.
