－TEKKO BUILDING Achieves 100% Renewable Electricity－
In December 2020, TEKKO BUILDING concluded an energy supply agreement with ENEOS Corporation, empowering the building with sufficient electricity from renewable power sources to meet all its power needs from January 1, 2021. As a result, TEKKO BUILDING is “the first large-scale mixed-use building in Japan to be 100% powered by renewable electricity”* - an achievement which is expected to reduce annual CO2 emissions by 8,000 tons.
This decarbonization initiative was inspired by the Tekko Building Co., Ltd. corporate philosophy: “In a world of increasing social diversification, we are creating environmental value wherever people are active, and we are contributing to society”. Our objective is to advance business that provides our customers, business partners and district neighbors with a better environment and helps to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
In the future, we will not only continue to pursue clean energy measures but also forge ahead with other efforts to create sustainable environmental value including recycling/re-use of resources, gross reduction of waste, and improvement of recycling rates.
The electrical power supplied under this agreement is clean power generated with zero CO2 emissions. It is hoped that TEKKO BUILDING tenants will reflect this benefit in their calculation of CO2 emission performance when measuring their compliance with international initiatives such as RE100 and domestic regulations such as Rationalization in Energy Use Law.

This 100% renewable electricity initiative also contributes toward the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and related targets which have been adopted by TEKKO BUILDING: increasing the usage of clean energy, strengthening urban sustainability, and pursuit of measures to improve the environment and mitigate climate change through reduction of CO2 emissions.
