Energy Saving via the Renewal of Air-Conditioning Facilities

We are engaging in the renewal of air-conditioning facilities at our properties to reduce energy consumption.

NMF Shiba-koen Building

Energy Saving via installing double sash

We are installing double sash to improve heat insulation and reduce the air conditioning energy required to keep the room temperature constant to reduce energy consumption.
(Sapporo North Plaza, NRE Yotsubashi Building)

Advanced energy-saving initiative: multiple effects realized through double skin (installation of double sash windows)

Most efficient energy-saving measure for existing buildings: Reduction of air-conditioning load (approx. 40% of total building energy consumption)

In addition to replacing lighting and air conditioning at end of useful life with high-performance equipment, the retrofitting of highly cost-effective double sash windows improves thermal insulation and achieves further energy savings

  • (Note 1) Attributable to downsizing of air handling units (AHUs) and associated reductions in maintenance costs.

Installed inner glass

Slimmer window frames improved design and helped increase property value.
3 layers of glass in total:
Window on existing exterior wall (1 layer) + Double sash windows (high transmittance, triple low-E glass: 1 layer + high transmittance glass: 1 layer)

Received Award of Excellence in the mitigation category at the 2022 Osaka Climate Change Action Awards

Award given to businesses and other organizations that undertaken particularly outstanding exemplar initiatives with regard to measures against climate change and measures mitigating the heat island phenomenon, in recognition of their achievements.


The installation of double sash windows has the effect of improving indoor comfort as well as saving energy.

  • Eliminates “cold drafts” from air cooled by the window surface flowing at foot level
  • Reduces condensation that occurs around windows such as with existing glass/aluminum sash windows and air conditioning outlets
  • Creates room spaces where the indoor temperature does not fluctuate much and there is little temperature difference between the window area and the center of the room
  • Shortens the time for heating up, and improves sound insulation, etc.

Collaboration with Tenants

Based on an understanding that real property operation that takes into consideration global environmental issues will lead to stable operations over the medium to long term, NMF is collaborating with tenants in owned properties and entering into green lease agreements to address global environmental issues including reducing energy and water use as well as reduction and proper disposal of waste throughout the entire business supply chain.

Green Lease Clauses

Standard lease contracts proposed by NMF include the following clauses aimed at ensuring that NMF and tenants work together to reduce environmental burdens.

  • Collaboration in the implementation of energy- and water-saving measures and waste reduction efforts to improve environmental performance and acquire relevant external certifications
  • Information sharing pertaining to status and goals with regard to energy consumption and other environmental performance indicators

<An example of a green lease scheme>

Under this scheme, NMF and its tenants agreed to share expenses for investment in energy-saving facility upgrades (i.e., a switchover to LED lighting)

  • NRE Yotsubashi Building
  • SORA Shin-Osaka 21
  • Sagamihara Tana Logistics Center

A System for Making It Easier to Check Energy Consumption (PMO Series)

Tenant Engagement Program

On top of using smart meters and Building and Energy Management Systems (BEMS), NMF cooperates with tenants to promote initiatives for the environment. Properties leased under the PREMIUM MIDSIZE OFFICE (PMO) brand are furnished with tablet terminals that make it easier to check the status of energy consumption, with the aim of ensuring that NMF and tenant companies share an acute awareness of the need to pursue eco-friendly operations and reduce environmental burdens.


Replacement of Power Companies

NMF is engaged in the selection of power companies from a broad range of candidates, including Power Producer and Supplier (PPS) companies inaugurated following the liberalization of Japan's electricity market . For each candidate, NMF gives due consideration to such factors as their cost competitiveness and supply stability as well as CO2 emission coefficients attributable to their energy source mixes.

Adaption to Climate Change

We are proactively expanding greenery at our properties to curb rises in temperatures and reduce energy consumption. Also, we are implementing a number of countermeasures to secure resilience against damage attributable to natural disasters arising from climate change.

Expanding Greenery

We are proactively planting grasses and trees on the rooftops of our properties while striving to allocate larger spaces to greenery in the course of facility renovation.

Countermeasures against Flooding

Flood prevention barriers are in place at such facilities as the NRE Tennozu Building and the Sagamihara Tana Logistics Center to protect them from surges attributable to high tides and heavy rainfalls.

Countermeasures against Heavy Snowfalls

In Sapporo, Hokkaido—the northernmost prefecture in Japan—our properties are equipped with road heating systems to lessen the inconvenience of heavy snowfalls. Moreover, we have improved facilities to prevent the accumulation of snow near the roof edges in order to ensure that passers-by are protected from the sudden heavy falls from above.
