HEARTH Heart&Earth Design

Our resolve to care about the global environment in homebuilding is signified by the word "HEARTH,"
which combines "Heart" and "Earth."
A HEARTH is a home where parents and children enjoy the most meaningful interactions,
where families deepen their connections, where people live with a lasting sense of security,
and where the heart is treasured and cherished.
It is a home where people live in comfort while staying in touch with nature,
a home that contributes to the global environment, and where the earth is treasured and cherished.
We design homes with consideration for humankind and the earth to create a more beautiful,
more prosperous future for children.
We members of the Misawa Homes Group view HEARTH as a key concept of our CSR activities,
and engage in various activities to contribute to the achievement of SDGs.

For the children of tomorrow

Misawa Homes has always operated under the founding principle of maintaining a lifelong commitment to its homeowners.
We have always developed products and technology that equips users with the capacity for sustainable growth
and the ability to react to the changing times,
even as the coming age of 100-year lifespans means that a lifetime will involve more
changes and greater demand for environmental consideration above and beyond just homes.

Amid our efforts, during the UN Summit in 2015,
17 goals for achieving a sustainable world—goals that would come to be known as SDGs—were adopted.
We at Misawa Homes share these goals,
and intend to leverage our hard-earned technology and expertise to contribute to their achievement.

In 2015, at the United Nations summit, 17 goals to achieve a sustainable world, called SDGs, were adopted.
Misawa Homes will contribute to this common goal by utilizing the technology and know-how that it has cultivated until now.

What are SDGs?

Sustainable development goals (SDGs) are global goals for creating a better world through
sustainability by 2030 as defined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
They were adopted at the UN Summit held in September 2015 as successors to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) formulated in 2001.
SDGs comprise of 17 goals and 169 targets,
and are founded on the pledge to leave no one behind, anywhere in the world.
SDGs are universal goals and targets for developing countries and developed countries alike to strive to achieve.
In that spirit, Japan joins other countries of the world in proactively striving to achieve SDGs.

Based on our principle of maintaining a lifelong commitment to our homeowners,
we the members of the Misawa Homes Group aim to create sustainable societies by building homes
and communities as well as in all our corporate activities.
Through seven sustainable activities, we strive to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs promoted by the UN.
