We want to give it shape.
As a space creation professional,
we want to create spaces that people are glad they exist
10 years from now, 20 years from now, and even 100 years from now.
Spaces that are the starting point
to move society in the direction of a happy future.
These spaces will address global environmental issues
and lead to a sustainable future society.
Delivering vitality to the region,
and providing a path of hope to the people living there.
Inheriting culture, nurturing culture,
and enriching people's sensibilities and creativity.
Kind to all visitors,
and enabling the creation of new connections.
We will unite our thoughts with our many partners
and through new co-creation that extends from the encounter,
we will continue to shape them one by one.
To bring the Delight and Passion of today,
and deliver happiness that continues into the future
to people and society.
of the NOMURA Group
With challenging technology development
Contributing to solving social issues
We, NOMURA Group, have faced various social issues and worked on unique social good as a space creation professional. In projects with customers, members who transcend organizational boundaries exchange ideas from the perspective of solving social issues and find solutions from a creative perspective.
4 areas of activity
Our social good is centered on the following four areas.
Contributing to the conservation of the global environment and sustainable space creation
Contributing to the creation of rich sensibilities through collaborative creation and support for art and traditional crafts
Contributing to regional revitalization, community building, and the inheritance of local resources
Creating people-friendly spaces and contributing to diversity in social participation
Social Good R&D
In order to develop the next-generation business foundation, employees think for themselves, take action,
We are working to create new value by balancing social issue resolution and business feasibility.
Sustainable space solution development
We are working on reducing CO2 emissions and creating zero waste with the aim of achieving sustainable space creation and revitalization. We are currently promoting visualization (numerical display) of CO2 emissions that use building information modeling (BIM), implementation of pre-cut methods, and joint-development of sustainable materials.
Rediscovering local resources and creating local value
We are re-examining the value of local resources so that future generations will consider these type of resources as a matter of course. We will continue working with local regions on activities that create “Delight and Passion” based on our mission of “creating a starting point to connect with the local community” while considering NOMURA’s future work style.
The study of Delight and Passion
Over the 130 years since NOMURA was first founded, we have provided “Delight and Passion” to people through our achievements with spaces. From now on, we will contribute to the construction of a richer society through "Delight and Passion" that adds a scientific approach in terms of "the analysis and research of behavior and psychology".
Capital or rather finance is a vital element in the various social good activities. We are promoting research into effective methods such as fund structuring and the development of evaluation techniques for social contribution activities. We have also invested in companies and groups that actively engage in social good tasks.
The NOMURA Group recognizes that contributing towards forestry conservation and sustainable timber distribution is our social responsibility, and promotes the use of Fairwood. We are working on field trials to increase the value of timber and are developing new uses for timber with the aim of jointly creating a “complete recycling timber business” in which Japanese timber such as cedar and cypress trees are used, planted, grown and then used as a renewable resource.
Inclusion & Art
We are working on programs and spatial design that lead to the creation of comfortable inclusion places for various people and places that enable creation and exchange through culture and art together with experts, educational institutions and companies to achieve an inclusive society where anyone can participate. We aim to create a community or rather a jointly created place where everyone can participate and play an active role.
We are aiming to pass on the essence of beauty and its various forms that NOMURA has developed over the many years by turning the aesthetic phenomena in our space creation and business activities into knowledge that is “typical of NOMURA” from an abstract perspective based on empirical practical knowledge.
