The Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group recognizes that climate change is an important environmental issue that greatly impacts its business activities.
The Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group recognizes that climate change is an important environmental issue that greatly impacts its business activities. The Group formulated our Sustainable Procurement Policy in January 2020. We promote the efficient use of energy and the use of renewable energy not only in our business activities but also throughout the life cycle of our products and services, and limit the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on climate variability. ( 5. Environmental measures, Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group Sustainable Procurement Policy)
In 2014, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). This report found that warming of the climate system is unequivocal and it is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century. Climate change caused by global warming not only causes rising sea levels, but also abnormal weather such as an increase in heavy rains and flooding as well as droughts. The businesses of the Group are not only directly affected by weather conditions, such as snowfall amounts required to operate ski areas, but also indirectly affected as well such as the fact that the worldwide procurement of various supplies required for our businesses may become difficult.
It is based on this awareness that the Group is promoting the more efficient use of energy and the utilization of renewable energy at its business offices as well as the office buildings, commercial facilities and resorts that it owns in an effort to mitigate the impacts that its business activities have on climate change. The development and operation of energy efficient office buildings, commercial facilities and resorts will create business opportunities and enhance the competitiveness of the Group.
We will continue to work with design firms, construction companies, end users and other stakeholders in an effort to realize a low-carbon society and address the issues of climate change and energy consumption.
The Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group has in place the Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Sustainability Committee, which is chaired by the President
The Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group has in place the Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Sustainability Committee, which is chaired by the President & Representative Director of Tokyu Fudosan Holdings and co-chaired by the Operating Officer of Tokyu Fudosan Holdings. The committee meets regularly 3 times a year to discuss, plan and confirm results pertaining to material issues, such as compliance, climate change, social contributions, and diversity. In turn, the results of committee deliberations are reported to the Board of Directors, which is led by the President & Representative Director of Tokyu Fudosan Holdings.
Additionally, the Sustainability Council, established as a subcommittee to the Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group Sustainability Committee, leads relevant management activities across the entire Group.
the Sustainability Council, comprised of environmental managers from each group company, sets group-wide fiscal year targets for greenhouse gas emissions, a major cause of climate change, monitors results and shares information based on a shared policy. This ensures proper reporting under relevant laws and regulations and environmental impacts are reduced through business activities.
In fiscal 2017, the Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group launched the 2017-2020 Management Plan as stage 2 of its Value Frontier 2020 medium-and long-term management plan. One of the materialities that form the basis for its formulation is the "change in the natural environment". Among them, we regard "climate change" as medium to long-term risk.
・With advanced renewable energy sources and technologies including energy management system becoming available, Tokyu Land Corporation has always been on the lookout for latest trends and technologies to identify and seize business opportunities that climate change presents. One such example is BRANZ City Shinagawa Katsushima, the first condominium in the world with each unit equipped with ENE-FARM, a fuel cell system developed specifically for multi-family residential. Also successfully completed in FY2017 are two multi-family residential projects, one with 11kW-solar power generation system and the other with EV sharing. We are now looking to offer residential with smart home services using cutting-edge energy management system and IoT technology.
・The Energy Conservation Act has been strengthened in recent years and we adhere to the stricter requirements as part of our climate-change risk management. Under the amended Act, we are required to make an effort to reduce annual emissions from our properties including office buildings, commercial facilities, resort facilities and fitness facilities by average of 1%. We renew and renovate our facilities and run routine energy management and energy conservation activities in order to meet the reduction target and other requirements.
Climate change risks and opportunities in our strategy
4℃Scenario & 2℃Scenario
●Society in 4℃ scenario
Worsening natural disasters while transition to low carbon/renewable energy stalled.
●Society in 2℃ scenario
Natural disasters becomes not as worse as 4℃ scenario while ZEB/renewable energy become popular.
a: Costs associated with climate changeWe expect apparent exposure to physical risks associated with climate change by year 2050. We have therefore established a set of expected climate change factors affecting our resort facility business in year 2050, and identified possible risks to the business:
• Decrease in revenue due to unexpected weather conditions including intense rainfalls and typhoons leading to fewer operating days.
• Added restoration cost related to collapsed slopes in the resort facilities caused by unexpected torrential rain.
• Decrease in revenue generated from our ski resorts and other winter sports facilities due to shorter operating period caused by warmer temperature and less snowfall amid global warming.
b: Investment in R&D on climate changeIn order to reduce exposure to GHG emissions and therefore less sensitivity to changes in cost of carbon, we have been advancing our research of and exploring further deployment of renewable energy generation facilities including solar and wind power generations to our commercial and resort facilities.
Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Corporation has agreed to the recommendations of “Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures(TCFD)” established by the Financial Stability Board (FSB).
As a member of the environmental committee of "The Real Estate Companies Association of Japan ”, Tokyu Land Corporation is working on promoting environmental action in the real estate industry. The committee periodically collects excellent efforts by member companies that lead to reduction of environmental burden and sustainable society building . They are used to share information among member companies and to further improve environmental awareness. Furthermore, we actively make proposals to public policies and regulations through “Low Carbon Town Planning Action Plan” or ” Environmental voluntary action plan”etc.
The Group supports and respects the UN Global Compact. In accordance with the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact broken down by the subjects of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, we are promoting responsible management aimed at contributing to the realization of a sustainable society.

Renewable Energy Business
Tokyu Fudosan Holdings has developed a wide range of businesses while always confronting social issues. In the field of renewable energy, we have been working on the brand "ReENE" since we entered the solar power business in Kagawa in 2014.We are steadily expanding our business with the keywords "contribution to decarbonization," "energy self-sufficiency rate improvement," and "regional contribution,", and became a member of "RE100" in April 2019 .In addition, we have positioned this business as one of the new investment targets in the “Expansion of the area of the recycling-based reinvestment business,” which is one of the growth strategies of the medium-term management plan.The number of solar power plants owned and operated, including those under development, has increased to 50 locations throughout Japan, and the rated capacity has grown to over 1 GW (= 1,000 MW).
We started a capital and business alliance with Renewable Japan Co., Ltd., a renewable energy company in 2017, and have continuing to strength our partnership. We currently are also a sponsor of Renewable Japan Energy Infrastructure Fund, Inc.
ReENE Matsumae Wind Power Plant, (Matsumae-gun, Hokkaido) the first wind power station with a storage battery in Hokkaido, started operation in April 2019. And, Suzuran Kushiro cho Solar power plant, (Kushiro-gun, Hokkaido) which is one of the largest power stations in Japan with a storage battery, has been in operation since February 2020.We plan to expand our assets to include not only the solar and wind power generation business, but also the biomass power generation business and the next-generation renewable energy business in the future.
Renewable energy is positioned as the main power source in Japan, and as the needs and social importance of clean energy increase, power generation companies and related businesses are required to have various functions and specialties.Therefore, Tokyu Land Corporation established the "Renewable Energy Association for Sustainable Power supply (REASP)" in December 2019 jointly with five companies including Renewable Japan Co.,Ltd. We will continue to expand our business by creating a system for stable supply over the long term while discussing with related ministries and agencies.
