As for the numerical targets, please see "Energy Usage/Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Policy" as well as "Water Conservation Policy".
CO₂ emissions are calculated based on the method defined in the Ministry of the Environment's "Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Accounting and Reporting System."
Increase of each energy statistics is due to acquisition of multi-purpose facilities, etc. during FY2016.
Scope 1 refers to direct emissions of greenhouse gases originating from the use of fuels and other materials in facilities.
Scope 2 refers to indirect emissions resulting from the use of electricity, heat and steam supplied by other companies.

- Conducted with purposes of incresing tenant satisfaction, improving building specifications, reducing costs, etc.
- There are cases where rents increase due to coinciding tenant's needs for installing LED lightings

■Reducing electric power consumption and CO₂ emissions

Property:intervillage OH!MAGARI
We are working with tenants to reduce electric power consumption and CO₂ emissions through a program that makes it possible to compare electric power consumption, perform analysis, and manage targets.

  • intervillage OH!MAGARI
  • mietaro
■Green Lease

For new lease agreements on many properties, they include clauses regarding environmental issues such as reduction of energy usage, waste weightage and requesting tenants cooperation when acquiring green building certifications.
Furthermore, OJR has addressed green leases arising from refurbishment such as the example below.

An example of green lease
Property:Morioka Minami Shopping Center Sansa
Introduction of green lease, in which OJR benefits (in electricity bill reductions) together with tenants from energy-saving improvement investments (LED lighting installation work) being implemented

Accredations on Properties


◆What is CASBEE?

CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency) is a comprehensive environmental performance assessment system that is under the initiative of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism for buildings being developed and promoted in Japan. There are 5 classifications for the 21 assessment items, namely energy/greenhouse gas, water, resource use/safety, biodiversity/land, and internal environment. Assessments are indicated based on a five-rank scale of C Rank to S Rank.

> Click here to view details about CASBEE.

◆Portfolio coverage ratio over total floor space on properties with CASBEE Certification

36% as of March 12, 2019 excluding land rights

In the case where the certification was acquired for a specific section of a multi usage facility, we will use the entire floor space of this property for the purpose of calculating the coverage ratio.

◆Certification Result

OJR has acquired evaluations on the following properties based on the assessment by Bureau Veritas Japan Co., Ltd.

◆What is BELS?

BELS (Building-Housing Energy-efficiency Labeling System) is the third-party certification system to rate houses and building in accordance with duty to make effort to label energy saving performance in the Act on Improving Energy Consumption Performance for Architectural Structures. Houses and building are evaluated based on the value of BEI (Building Energy Index) derived from the primary energy consumption based on the government-designated energy consumption performance standard of architectural structures.
The evaluation and indication based on the system shall be implemented by the registered organizations as operators of BELS operations, which fall under registered housing performance evaluation organizations that are members of the evaluation association, designated construction confirmation authorities or registered building research agencies.
The evaluation is given according to a scale of one to five stars.

◆Portfolio coverage ratio over total floor space on properties with BELS

20% as of March 12, 2019 excluding land rights

◆Certification Result

Based on evaluation of Japan ERI CO.,LTD., and The Building Center of Japan, OJR received the certification for the following properties.
