ESG Initiatives 

ESG Policy

Sustainability Policy

SHAM and SHR aim to provide “sustainable living basis” for residents and “sustainable bases of operation” of tenant companies by conducting real estate investment management with due consideration given to the environment, society and governance (collectively referred to as “ESG”) in recognition of the shared responsibility to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society in accordance with the “Sustainable Vision” advocated by Sekisui House, the sponsor of SHAM and SHR.

SHAM has established a Sustainability Policy, as set out below, and observes and implements these principles throughout all its business activities.

Our Sustainability Committee also sets targets, and periodically measures compliance and the effectiveness of measures we have taken and examines improvements.

 

Signing of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

Since SHR and SHAM have conducted real estate investment management taking ESG into consideration to realize a sustainable society and believe that such initiatives share objectives with the Principles for Responsible Investment (“PRI”) advocating incorporation of ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes, SHAM decided to support the basic approaches of the PRI and became a signatory in March 2019 as an asset management company. In becoming a signatory institution, we will commit ourselves to the goals set in the PRI and further deepen our ESG initiatives.
