In terms of ’Customer-Oriented Management’, we strive to offer services that contribute even more to solving customers’ problems, by using our nationwide Customer Support Centers and account sales to gather information on market needs, which are then reected in our offerings. In the area of ‘Digital Transformation, we are building sustainable facility management models by integrating human skills and technology. Finally, as part of ‘Group Management’ we are working to strengthen governance systems as the foundation for sustainable growth.

■Contributing to the realization of a sustainable society
through continuous innovation The spread of COVID-19 has forced signicant changes to people’s lives. With disease prevention measures becoming the norm in all aspects of life, the growing shift to remote working and online services is changing the functions required of certain facilities.
