Energy-saving / utilization of natural energy

LED lighting

For malls opened in recent years, 100% of public areas is equipped with LED lights. We are also encouraging specialty stores to adopt LED lighting when a new mall is opened or when existing stores are renovated since, colors and brightness of lights can now be chosen by stores. As a result, a steady progress is being made in the switch to LED lighting. Additionally, LED lighting with lower power consumption is being adopted for exterior electric signs.

Introduction of an air-conditioning ventilation energy saving system

We have achieved remarkable energy-saving by introducing an air-conditioning ventilation energy saving system and managing energy of entire properties using an advanced IT technology. This system optimizes energy efficiency using IT by always monitoring outside air temperature, room temperature and humidity, and humidity and CO2 concentration, and controlling electric equipment, air conditioning equipment, water supplying and draining equipment, and the like.

Solar power generation

Moving ahead of other commercial properties, we have introduced solar power generation systems in stages to create electricity by utilizing natural energy. In addition, some malls have introduced systems where power generated by solar panels can be used in the event of a power outage due to disasters etc.

Completed to install EV chargers at all our malls in Japan

Completed to install EV chargers at all our malls in Japan

This fiscal year, a total of 142 malls* managed and operated by AEON MALL completed the installation of 1,476 EV (electric vehicle) chargers. We have also installed 461 EV chargers at 10 malls in China where EV vehicles have been rapidly spreading. In addition, in November 2017, we officially participated in "EV100", an international business initiative, to promote use of electric vehicles by enterprises as the first Japanese company.

* Excludes some property management (the building management and operation being commissioned by the owner) malls.

Promoting use of public transportation

Promoting use of public transportation

AEON MALL is trying to make it easy for customers to be able to visit mall by using public transportation, and some of our malls within walking distance of station is doing much more, for example, by offering benefits to customers who come by train in cooperation with railroad company and transportation bureau. AEON MALL Chikushino (Fukuoka Prefecture) started full-fledged operation of Park & Ride in October 2017 in cooperation with Chikushino City, Fukuoka City, Fukuoka Prefecture, JR Kyushu, Nishitetsu. By preparing parking spaces for 70 cars on weekdays, the mall supports customers who visit the mall by car so that they can transfer from the closest station to Hakata and Tenjin by train.

We are participating in the “CO2 Reduction / Light Down Campaign” advocated by the Ministry of the Environment, and we turned off some outdoor lights from 20:00 to 22:00 on the summer solstice June 21 and on the Cool Earth Day July 7 in 2017. About 1,700 facilities including stores and distribution centers belonging to the nationwide AEON group participated in this campaign and implemented simultaneously. In addition, as part of this campaign, AEON MALL Makuhari New City (Chiba Prefecture) held a workshop where participants create luminous paper strips and penlights using magnesium batteries and attracted attention from the viewpoint of environmental burden reduction.

Cool sharing project “Suzumall”

AEON MALL Fukuoka
AEON MALL Fukuoka

As one of our efforts for the national campaign “COOL CHOICE” to take global warming countermeasures which the AEON group supports, we implemented the cool sharing project “Suzumall” at each mall just like last fiscal year. Each mall held various events such as opening our study rooms to the public and holding water events. Purpose of this event was to offer an opportunity for reduction of home air conditioner use by providing customers with an enjoyable and comfortable time at all malls.
