Seeking realization of a sustainable society

Since the founding of our business, we have consistently provided architectural structures that respond to the expectations of our customers based on our management philosophy, "Contribute to society by passing on the best works to future generations." The role that corporations are called on to play in society changes with the times. Today they are being asked to contribute to solving large numbers of problems confronting our world on a global scale, including such issues as climate change and overpopulation. We wish to maintain a sensitivity to change at all times. To this end, we will continue our ongoing dialog with people everywhere and our diligent efforts to improve our technologies with the aim of providing optimal solutions to the needs of the era. Leveraging the strengths of our whole corporate group, we will contribute to urban creation by building cities and towns in which people can live in safety and security and to achieving a sustainable society with the aim of establishing a path to a better future for the earth.

We wish to take this opportunity to offer our sincere apologies once more for the considerable inconvenience caused to subway passengers as well as to other concerned parties when a large volume of water flooded Nagoya Station on the Higashiyama Line of the Nagoya Municipal Subway system recently, requiring an extended suspension of subway operation. We and all our employees reaffirm our awareness of our potential as an architectural firm to exert a serious impact on society at all times, and our companywide commitment to efforts to prevent any future recurrence of such incidents.

"Urban Creation" with prosperity and peace of mind

Society’s expectations of architectural firms such as ours are undergoing drastic changes. We are expected to respond decisively to wide-ranging needs, including earthquake disaster recovery efforts and energy and environmental issues, development of more stable and abundant national land, and construction of cities and infrastructure around the world as well as the globalization of corporations’ business operations. Cities and buildings are expected to fulfill increasingly sophisticated and diversified functions in today’s era of changing lifestyles and corporate activities.
Last year we established the "Takenaka Group CSR Vision" and the "Takenaka Group Message." With these as a basis, we intend to promote activities that contribute to realizing a sustainable society through "urban creation" with prosperity and peace of mind, thereby enabling people to lead happy, fulfilling lives, as the best partner for society and our customers.
