Response to Climate Change
Green management certificate
Green management is a system of independently and systematically promoting environmentally friendly
measures while also aiming to improve the management side of business.
Green management certification is judged and issued by the Foundation for Promoting Personal Mobility and Ecological Transportation to businesses that are making efforts beyond a certain level based on the Green Management Implementation Manual.
Mitsui-Soko Group has obtained this certification in the warehousing and trucking industries, with 46 office locations having a long-term registered trademark (awarded to offices with continuous registration for 10 years from their first year of registration) as part of an effort to reduce its environmental impact.
CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency) is a ranking system for evaluating the
environmental-friendliness of buildings.
It was created in 2001 and is being led by the Ministry of Land, Transport, Infrastructure, and Tourism.
Five categories (S rank, superior; A rank, excellent; B+ rank, good; B- rank, somewhat lacking; C rank, lacking) are used, with those at rank A and above considered sustainable buildings that are eco-friendly.
Facilities we have built in recent years are A-rated under the Ministry of Land, Transport, Infrastructure, and Tourism CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency) metric.

Implementing the Cool Choice program
Cool Choice is a campaign launched by the Ministry of the Environment that seeks to reduce greenhouse gases to cope with climate change. Making Japan a model for the low-carbon society of the future hinges on actively using Japan’s leading low-energy/low-carbon products, services, and mentality in our daily lives. Seeking to have everyone come together to prevent global warming, the project has a unified logo and involves a partnership between the government, industry, local municipalities, and NPOs, working widely with people across Japan. As of this year, we are acting as a sponsor firm of the project.
