Contributing to the SDGs

Daiwa House Industry was launched in 1955 because its founder wanted to go into business to be of service to people and society, and his spirit is embodied in the Group’s fundamental principal: Creating Dreams, Building Hearts. Group companies have kept this commitment alive by working to achieve the SDGs, intended to bring about a sustainable world.
In that context, we are engaged in environmental initiatives oriented to achieving the Group’s RE100 objectives.
