1. SMBC Sustainable Building Assessment for Privately-placed Bond

SMBC Sustainable Building Assessment for privately-placed bond, an original assessment system established by Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and CSR Design & Landscape Co., Ltd., assesses buildings owned or constructed by company based on the environmental quality of the building (energy, water, construction materials), risk management approach for business continuity (earthquake resistance of the building, BCP, BCM) and corporate policy and practices for sustainability. The results of the assessment will be reflected in the privately-placed bond terms.
