CO₂ Emissions Reduction Plan for 2030

Long-term Goal for 2030

  • We aim to reduce total CO2 emissions, in principle, from fiscal year 2013.
  • Along with total CO2 emissions, we will identify CO2 emissions from individual buildings with the aim of verifying the CO2 reduction effects from a single building.

Actions on Climate Change

The 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21), held in December 2015 in Paris, adopted the Paris Agreement as a new international framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions after 2020. In Japan, discussions on specific measures to address climate change are picking up momentum with the formulation by the government of the “Plan for Global Warming Countermeasures,” which sets the target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions of 26% by FY2030 from the level in FY2013. In addition, companies in the “commercial and other sectors” are required to reduce emissions by 40%.
In accordance with these changes in the external environment, Hulic reviewed the existing plan to reduce CO2 emissions with the year 2020 as the target year, and formulated a new CO2 emissions reduction plan in 2017 with the year 2030 as the target year.
Regarding the current progress of the existing CO2 emissions reduction plan (target year: 2020), we have achieved the target on the basis of our consumption of primary energy.

Basic Plan to Achieve the Goal

  1. Properties for reconstruction: Reduce energy consumption by an average of 25% by implementing various energy-saving measures.
  2. Properties requiring maintenance/renovation properties to be newly purchased: Reduce energy consumption by an average of 5% by implementing facility renovation (increasing value), and the use and operational arrangement of green leasing*.
  3. All buildings: Endeavor to reduce energy consumption with cooperation from tenants by taking measures such as visualizing the energy consumption of each building.
  • *Under green leasing, building owners collaborate with tenants and make voluntary arrangements on reducing environmental impacts through energy-saving measures for real estate and improving the work environment by specifying in a contract or memorandum of understanding, etc., and implement the agreements.

Adoption of Energy-saving Technologies, etc.

  1. Buildings: Improve building envelope performance (improve window specifications and enhance heat insulation capacity, etc.), introduce natural ventilation/lighting systems, and adopt greening of rooftops/walls, etc.
  2. High-efficiency devices/systems: Work to reduce the outdoor air load by adopting LED lighting, high-efficiency devices, total heat exchangers, motion detectors/light control sensors, and CO2 sensors, and use cogeneration/fuel cells, untapped energy, and heat interchange systems, etc.
  3. Others: Work to introduce renewable energy, promote onsite/offsite photovoltaic power generation, and visualize energy consumption, etc.
