To provide peace of mind to our customers, we have added greenery to our facilities and opened up parks and other communal spaces. We also work continuously to provide safe spaces for the local community and coordinate with local events. For example, our Abiko Shopping Plaza sponsors the local summer festival, and its rooftop is opened to the public as a viewing spot during the Teganuma Fireworks Display, which is one of the largest fireworks displays in the region.
Through these efforts, we are working to create an environment where local residents see our facilities as part of their community.
In addition, we have introduced “Park & Ride Shopping” at mozo wonder city as an effort to alleviate traffic jams in the surrounding area and to be environmentally friendly. We cooperate with nearby railway companies and offer benefits to customers who visit the shopping center by train after parking in a designated parking lot.
We are also cooperating in public rescue and assistance and mutual help initiatives through public-private partnerships at Twin 21, located in Osaka Business Park.
