Promote Further Integration of Business Operations and ESG Initiatives in the Overseas Housing and Real Estate Business

The Overseas Housing and Real Estate Business places value on construction that adapts to the living customs and culture of each region. We respect the management policies of our local Group companies to create a system that is able to provide products and services best suited to each region. For example, in the United States, enhancements to common areas such as walkways lush with nature and playgrounds as well as information centers built alongside pools, parks, cafés and other amenities in line with the scale of a development heighten community value and satisfaction of lifestyle environments.

In Australia, we are also improving added valve toward reductions in the environmental impact by actively selling environmentally-sound housing and successfully developing zero-emission homes in addition to other initiatives.

At the same time, the Overseas Housing and Real Estate Business communicates closely with the Sumitomo Forestry head office while building a system for rapid, precise response to material issues whether risk evaluations in the development of housing and real estate or efforts to ensure on-site occupational health and safety.
