Environmental Activities (E)
The GLP Group's fundamental approach to facility design and operational processes is energy-saving. We strive to improve energy efficiency in both existing facilities and new facility developments. In accordance with the above policy, GLP J-REIT actively owns environmentally friendly buildings and introduces eco-friendly equipment, as well as develops rules for checking sustainability and environment protection items in the due diligence process when considering the purchase of a property. Thus, it takes utmost care in that its asset management operations pay consideration to the sustainability of society and environmental protection. At the facilities it operates, GLP J-REIT sets numerical targets and monitors the amount of energy and water used within the facility as well as the amount of waste. Furthermore, GLP J-REIT not only strives to save energy and reduce waste in common areas but also shares information on the amount of energy used and waste with tenant companies in an effort to reduce environmental load together with tenant companies by issuing an energy-saving guidebook according to energy use and recommending to stop idling engines within facility premises.

Cooperation with tenants
GLP J-REIT includes the following clauses in its standard lease contracts signed with its tenants to cooperate with them in reducing environmental load.
- Cooperation in improving environmental performance to obtain environmental certification (saving electricity and water, reducing waste)
- Sharing of data and targets on energy consumption
Tenant management programs
In cooperation with tenants, GLP Group takes part in various initiatives that reduce environmental load.We proactively work to increase tenant awareness regarding how to reduce environmental load and cut water and electricity consumption. Specifically, we promote the visualization of electricity consumption by sending meter data to our tenants, encouraging them to turn off their vehicles when stopped, and encouraging them to save water and electricity.
- Visualize electricity consumption in cooperation with tenants
- Provide tenants with information on energy, water, waste, and other consumption and emissions
- Tenant awareness and education activities, etc.
Initiatives in water resources
GLP J-REIT makes efforts to save water by updating toilet equipment when tenants move in or leave, and by using rainwater and well water.
Water-saving by updating toilet equipment
Installation of water-saving devices.
By installing water-saving devices, the amount of water that comes out of the faucet when the tap is twisted can be reduced.
Water-saving by using well water and rainwater
In an effort to save water, well water and rainwater are used to drain toilets as well as to water the plants in the facility.
Initiatives in waste management
GLP J-REIT works to reduce waste by continuously monitoring the waste quantities and by implementing trash separation at its facilities.Matebank Corporation, a used logistics goods brokerage firm, and GLP Japan Inc., the sponsor, have a business partnership which allows GLP’s customers to buy and sell inexpensive logistics goods from Matebank. We are committed to the reuse of logistics goods.
GLP J-REIT recognizes the importance of the various benefits that ecosystems bring about and works to preserve them by planting trees in our facilities.
