Environmental Collaboration Efforts with Tenant・Stakeholders

MEL and MJIA, the asset management company, endeavors to contribute to a sustainable environment by improving the environmental performance of the properties under management. However, we believe that the understanding and cooperation of tenants are also important. We aim to collaborate for a sustainable environmental society in order to promote awareness-raising activities for tenants. MEL has introduced green lease contract that allows both building owners and tenants to share merits, and promote sustainability-related initiatives in cooperation with tenants.

Awareness-Raising Activities for Tenants

In order to take the lead in energy-saving activities, we have prepared building regulation manuals describing the environmental cooperation clause such as waste sorting, recycling recommendations, air conditioning operation standards, idling stopping. In addition, we are implementing awareness-raising activities by distributing posters to common areas on each floor.

Green Lease

MEL conducted LED lighting installation works for a part of a tenant office space at the expense of MEL based on the green lease contract. A certain ratio of the highly reduced amount of electricity bills and maintenance costs (costs for exchanging fluorescent bulbs) has been paid from the tenants in return as Green Lease fee.

Cooperation with Property Management Company and Selection Criteria・Evaluation Measures

MEL has established a criteria for the selection of property management companies to which property management is entrusted, and in principle, evaluates all property management companies once a year.
MEL and MJIA are engaging with property management companies to share our vision, policies of sustainability and when making contract with a new tenant, property managers explain these ideas to tenants to achieve their cooperation.

Education to Employees on Green Building

MJIA provides sustainability training annually by external specialist to improve awareness and knowledge on green building for its employees.
