Operational Framework for Sustainability

Mitsubishi Estate takes an active, group-wide approach to sustainability. Chaired by the President & Chief Executive Officer of Mitsubishi Estate with the Director responsible for Sustainability (the Director in charge of the Sustainability Management and Promotion Department at Mitsubishi Estate) as the deputy chair, the Group's Sustainability Committee comprises executives in charge of respective functional and business groups and the executives in charge of the Corporate Group, as well as managers of the major Group companies, and it ensures group-wide implementation of sustainability. The Sustainability Subcommittee serves as forum for detailed discussion to prepare for Sustainability Committee meetings.

The Sustainability Committee typically meets twice a year to deliberate and report on important matters related to sustainability. Prior to the meetings of the Sustainability Committee, the Sustainability Subcommittee conducts preliminary discussions and reporting while compiling information on efforts to promote sustainability made by business groups.

The deliberations of the Sustainability Committee are submitted to the Executive Committee whenever necessary in light of their importance and other factors. The deliberations of the Sustainability Committee are also reported to and supervised by the Board of Directors.

The Sustainability Committee formulates policies and plans. In implementing the policies and plans it approves, the Director responsible for Sustainability oversees the process, while the sustainability managers and staff of each department at Mitsubishi Estate and each Mitsubishi Estate Group company and the Sustainability Promotion Executive Office (Sustainability Management and Promotion Department at Mitsubishi Estate) together head the execution of specific activities and studies.

Monitoring Progress Relating to Key Themes

The Mitsubishi Estate Group formulated the Mitsubishi Estate Group 2030 Goals for the SDGs, a core component for its strategy of increasing social value, and one of the strategic drivers that the Group has set out in its Long-Term Management Plan 2030 (launched in 2020). The 2030 Goals make plain the four key themes of the environment, diversity & inclusion, innovation, and resilience, and articulate specific action plans and targets for each theme. For the "environment" theme in particular, the Group has established quantitative goals linked to international initiatives, such as the formulation of science-based targets (SBTs) and participation in RE100.

To achieve these goals, the Group has incorporated its annual targets and initiatives related to the four key themes into annual plans for each organization and function. The Sustainability Committee tracks Group-wide progress and manages the process using the PDCA cycle. Target progress and detail are also regularly monitored by third-party organizations.

Finally, achieving the annual plans is included as one of the qualitative evaluation criteria for determining officer remuneration.
