Describe the Impact of a Project you’re focused on.
I am working on a green development (ideally the first Living Building Challenge bldg in Japan) in central Tokyo. It aims to give back to the environment and community as much as or more than it takes in the form of carbon and environmental footprint.
What results do you hope for when the impact is amplified?
I aim to inspire the real estate investment industry to adopt similar practices by showing how it can be done at or above market rate returns. Japan is currently the 2nd largest real estate market in the world by value.
What do you have to offer as a connector? What can you give as expertise to others?
We plan on making the development process open source, so that developers can use our knowledge base to replicate our successes and avoid our mistakes. We hope to make the real estate industry (which is responsible for approx. 40% of global man made carbon emissions) truly regenerative and sustainable.
