Environmental Measures

* Green Leases refer to voluntary agreements formed in cooperation with building owners and tenants in which contracts and MOUs are concluded to reduce the environmental burden through energy saving, etc., and to improve the working environments of real estate, and the implementation of the contents of those agreements.
