Calculating backward from the long-term environmental vision, we have set 2030 as a milestone for achieving the vision. We formulate concrete targets and plans as the Endless Green Program (EGP) nearly every three years in accord with the period of a medium-term management plan to promote it.
In the EGP, we identify "four environmental themes (social issues)," which are of much interest to stakeholders and closely related to our business, and we work on them at three phases: procurement; business activities; and products and services.

Establishing targets through "backcasting"
In identifying the targets for our four themes introduced above, we applied the technique of "backcasting" for the Long-Term Environmental Vision we formulated as our objective for 2055, when Daiwa House Industry will mark its 100th anniversary. We have identified the period from 2025 to 2040 as our milestones, and have indicated the levels to be attained after three years.
In the Endless Green Program 2021 (fiscal 2019 to 2021), which expands the scope of application to all the Group companies including overseas ones, we are going to accelerate integrated environmental management within our Group and globally based on the life cycle approach to ensure that corporate profitability can coexist with environmental sustainability. In particular, we place emphasis on the carbon-free initiative, which is raised as one of the policies in our 6th Medium-Term Management Plan (fiscal 2019 to 2021).
