Environmental initiatives

Fundamental Policy

The PARCO Group recognizes global environmental issues as an important theme in its business activities in shopping centers and related fields. Through the promotion of environmental preservation activities, the Group seeks to leave a sustainable society for future generations.

To this end, the Group aims to reduce the environmental impact of the commercial spaces it creates. These efforts include cooperating with tenants and other transaction partners, and making sure that customers and local communities are informed of the Groups activities and accept them.

Furthermore, the Group will use energy efficiently by introducing state-of-the-art technology and other measures.
