V.E provides SPO for Nomura Real Estate Group’s Sustainability Bond

V.E (Vigeo Eiris) has provided a second-party opinion on the sustainability credentials and management of Nomura Real Estate Group’s Sustainability Bond.

The sustainability bond that is scheduled to be issued within 2021 at least 100 million yen, will refinance green buildings, basic infrastructure that protects people from natural disaster, elderly residences, and satellite offices for woman and SME’s that provide diverse working conditions.

V.E has assigned a Second Party Opinion (SPO) on the sustainability credentials and management of the Sustainability Bond issued by Nomura Real Estate Group. Our opinion is that this Bond is aligned with the four core components of the Green Bond Principles (2018), Social Bond Principles (2020) and we have expressed a robust assurance (our second highest level of assurance) on the contribution of this Bond to sustainable development.

V.E has produced more than 300 second-party opinions on sustainable financing operations in Europe, Africa, the Americas and Asia. We are a Climate Bonds Standard Approved Verifier.

Nomura Real Estate Group and its affiliated companies sells and leases condominiums, residential houses, and office buildings. The Company also manages REITs, real estate development, and consulting services. In November 2018, the Company has acquired Lothbury Investment Management, a UK-based real estate investment manager. Nomura Real Estate Holdings was founded in 2004 and is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
