Efforts Relating to COVID-19

The Mitsui Fudosan Group understands that a priority of its ESG management is the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, which is a global threat, and the cessation of the pandemic. By taking the lead with efforts to protect human life and health, we are fulfilling our corporate social responsibility.

There is currently no reliable pharmaceutical treatment for COVID-19, and the cessation of the pandemic is expected to take some time. As such, each of its businesses are working to restart economic activity in co-existence with COVID-19, pursuing strict measures to prevent further spread of the virus while progressively restarting and normalizing their business activities in close collaboration with their stakeholders, including tenants.

In the post-pandemic era, we anticipate structural changes in people’s lifestyles and workstyles, including more remote work, a transformation in residential needs, and an expansion in E-commerce. As we work to accelerate the digital transformation, we will enhance the value of healthy, secure real spaces where people can encounter others and encounter nature experiences that digital technology cannot match. We will implement measures that position us for the next leap forward and further enhance our competitive capabilities.

Through these efforts, we will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society as defined in our Group long-term vision, VISION 2025, to the solution of ESG challenges, and to the achievement of SDGs.
