Creating a Prosperous, Sustainable Future
1 Offering a more sustainable model that preserves existing real estate
Ichigo's Sustainable Real Estate business has a proven track record of preserving and improving existing real estate, while challenging the wasteful cycle of demolition and redevelopment in Japan’s real estate industry. Ichigo will build on this long-standing commitment to sustainability by developing new technologies to extend the lives of buildings and other social infrastructure 100 years and beyond.
2 Generating safe, clean energy to support Japan and world
In November 2012, we launched our clean energy business after the Fukushima nuclear accident to support Japan's shift into clean, safe renewables. We deploy Ichigo's expertise in real estate to make effective use of idle land across the nation by building utility-scale solar and more recently wind power plants. Our largest plant, the Ichigo Showamura Ogose ECO Power Plant, has 167,000 solar panels that can power 14,500 homes.
3 Demonstrating sustainability to create new value for real estate
The Comprehensive Assessment System for Building Environmental Efficiency, or CASBEE, is a Japanese government certification that evaluates and rates buildings’ environmental performance based on their energy and resource efficiency, recycling activity, environmental load, and aesthetic appeal.
CASBEE-certified buildings are scored for their environmental performance in five categories and receive a total environmental performance ranking (from highest to lowest): S, A, B+, B-, C.
