Overview of DBJ Green Building Certification System
The DBJ Green Building Certification Program was launched by Development Bank of Japan Inc. (“DBJ”) in April 2011, for the purpose of supporting the properties which give proper care to environment and society (“Green Building”).
The program evaluates and certifies properties which are required by society and economy. It makes comprehensive assessment of properties, while evaluating various factors which range from properties’ environmental features to their communication with stakeholders, such as disaster prevention and proper care for surrounding communities.
Since August 2017, Japan Real Estate Institute (“JREI”) evaluates and certifies properties and DBJ controls the DBJ Green Building Certification Program.

Overview of GRESB and the GRESB Real Estate Assessment
GRESB is an annual benchmark for environmental, social and governance considerations in the global real estate sector, which was established in 2009 primarily by major European pension fund groups which led the Principles for Responsible Investment. The characteristic of the GRESB Assessment is that it evaluates sustainability efforts by real estate companies and REITs, etc., not of individual properties.
