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.

Initiatives in energy-saving

GLP J-REIT strives to reduce the use of energy within its logistics facilities by adopting LED lighting and human-presence sensors in its facilities and segmenting light switching in the warehouse areas.

GLP J-REIT also improves energy efficiency within buildings by promoting energy-saving through updates of air-conditioning equipment at facilities and adopting heat-insulating panels on the exterior walls of the facilities that improve heat insulation performance.

Promoting the acquisition of energy-saving examinations

The BELS (Building Energy-efficiency Labeling System) assessment is a system whereby a third party evaluates the performance of buildings based on the primary energy consumption as defined in the Act on the Rational Use of Energy, regardless of whether a building is new or not, and this is expected to promote further improvements in the energy conservation performance of buildings.

Cooperation with tenants

At the facilities it operates, GLP J-REIT sets numerical targets and monitors the amount of energy used within the facility. Furthermore, it not only strives to save energy and reduce waste in the common areas but also makes efforts to reduce environmental load together with tenant companies through initiatives such as issuing an energy-saving guidebook according to the use of energy by the tenants.

Trash separation

Green lease

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.

節水コマの設

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.

Biodiversity

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.

GLP Urayasu II

  • Rebuilt and redeveloped an existing facility (B building) at GLP Urayasu II by GLP Group
  • Upon redevelopment, the building acquired Rank A certification from CASBEE for Real Estate as it was able to reduce electricity use by installing LED lighting throughout the entire newly developed building and through large ceiling fans in air-conditioned areas

Pollution prevention

When acquiring real-estate-related assets, etc., as a rule, experts conduct an environmental contamination survey prior to the conclusion of a purchase agreement, and the survey results will be evaluated and considered in accordance with the following “soil survey chart” based on the Asset Management Guidelines. Moreover, as a rule, our investment targets will be properties that are appropriately treated for soil contamination, etc., in accordance with the Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act (Act No. 53, 2002), other related environmental laws, and municipal ordinances or guidance.

  1. After surveying the overview of the land-use history, surrounding environment, etc. and obtaining experts’ opinions on possible soil contamination and risk of it causing health damage when contamination is likely.
  2. Based on the Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act and other related environment-related laws as well as ordinances or directions of local governments, identify the type of pollutants and the scope of contamination to the extent possible by holding talks with the seller, experts, etc. and carrying out subsurface soil investigation to confirm the contamination status.
  3. Based on the results of soil contamination investigation mentioned in *2, estimate decontamination costs and other expected economic loss that could arise in the future to the extent possible by holding talks with experts, etc.
