During the course of its business activities in a wide range of domains from development to operations management of real estate, the Group is connected with various regional communities. Therefore, we believe that it is our duty as a good corporate citizen to proactively fulfill a role to support and work with society while seeking harmonious balance between interests of our own and society.
As part of such efforts, the Group is engaged in social/community service activities mainly in its mainstay real estate field such as recovery support for disaster-stricken areas and conservation and management of traditional Kyomachiya (townhouse in Kyoto). We believe these activities will lead to pursuit of the “dream life” and realization of sustainable society.
