SG Realty is involved in solar power generation at the Group's 99 distribution sites and distribution centers throughout Japan with the goal of a stable supply of electric power and the reduction of the environmental impact. The total area of the panel installations is roughly 197,000m2 and the total power generated annually is approximately 27,772MWh. This is equivalent to a reduction of about 13,811 tons of CO2 emissions compared to that generated through means other than natural energy. The generated electric power is supplied to electric power companies in each region, but SG Realty Wako completed in February 2018 has introduced the latest captive solar power generation system.
SG Realty Wako uses LED lighting for all lighting throughout the facility, and has installed an outdoor deck using natural wood processed by Sagawa Forestry that can be used as a place for employees to interact with each other and disaster prevention electricity storage facilities using the generated power. It has obtained five stars, which is the highest rank, under both the DBJ Green Building certification system supporting environmentally and socially friendly real estate (Green Buildings) and the BELS labeling system for energy-saving performance of buildings for being a facility where steps have been taken to address environmental, comfort and disaster prevention aspects. Furthermore, it became the first logistics facility to be recognized as a zero-energy building (ZEB) under BELS.
