Message from the Management

DHR will work to continuously increase unitholder value by ensuring stable revenue and steady
growth of its assets over the medium to long term through fully utilizing Daiwa House Group’s
comprehensive strengths and knowhow regarding real-estate development.

■Daiwa House REIT Investment Corporation’s ESG Policy

Aiming to ensure stable revenue and steady growth of assets over the medium
to long term, we will strive to manage assets in a manner that embraces ESG
considerations while appropriately disclosing such performance

Daiwa House REIT Investment Corporation and its asset manager Daiwa House Asset Management Co., Ltd. share the Daiwa House Group’s basic approach of “Creating Dreams, Building Hearts.” To attain a sustainable society, it is essential that we include environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) considerations in real estate investment management operations. We also believe that this will contribute to DHR’s basic policy of ensuring stable revenue and achieving steady asset growth over the medium to long term. As such, DHR established the Sustainability Policy in April 2017, and has been applying it to its real estate investment management business.
We released our first Sustainability Report in July 2021 for the purpose of providing an opportunity for unitholders and other stakeholders to learn more about the various ESG initiatives and approaches implemented by DHR and the Asset Manager thus far. Going forward, DHR will keep striving to further enhance its ESG initiatives with respect to its real estate investment management business, while endeavoring to appropriately disclose such performance.
