Furthermore, KDXR and the Asset Management Company recognize “providing environment and social friendly properties” as one of our materialities, and contribute to reducing the overall environmental impact of society, improving convenience through investment in wide variety of properties.

Improving Resilience for Disaster

KDXR and the Asset Management Company have been making various initiatives to be prepared for emergency situations in our properties for the safety and security of tenants' employees, visitors and local communities.

Emergency Kit Box in Elevator

KDXR has been placing boxes of emergency kit in the elevators in case of disaster and machine trouble.

Distribution of Emergency Action Manual Handbook

KDXR published a pocket-sized, portable emergency action manual handbook and distributed to tenants for emergencies including major earthquakes.
The handbook contains various helpful information in an emergency, such as response to major earthquakes, emergency relief activities and how to use AED.

Vending machines for disaster relief

KDXR has installed vending machines for disaster relief at some of its properties. In the event of a power outage caused by a disaster or similar event, products in the vending machine can be provided as relief beverages free of charge.

Improving Tenant Satisfaction

KDXR and the Asset Management Company tries to enhance customer satisfaction through managing its properties. KDXR and the Asset Management Company are also dedicated to increasing the satisfaction of listed REIT investors. To improve the quality of the properties and management performance, KDXR and the Asset Management Company work in cooperation with property management companies, building management companies and other business partners.

Tenant Satisfaction Survey

The Asset Management Company conducts satisfaction survey for tenants in office buildings, shopping centers and healthcare facilities (the person in charge of general affairs and employees, and residents) regarding building facilities and operational services. This survey is undertaken by a third party and conducted every two years as a general rule.
Consecutive survey enables us to capture the tenant needs and quickly respond by renewal of facilities or implement refurbishment and receive strong intention to stay in the same building from tenants.
