One by one, ideals become reality.GYRE’s actions for the future
Imagining the future, we make choices about our consumption and our actions. This is something that GYRE has consistently communicated and practiced.
At GYRE.FOOD, located on the fourth floor, vegetables grown on the terrace are served at the shops and restaurants, and the food waste that remains is converted into compost and returned to the soil.
We are also working to reduce plastic waste with the cooperation of all our tenants.
We believe that sharing music, culture, art, and other experiences, and creating a place where children can enjoy learning, feeds a “cycle” that connects to the future.
In fiscal 2021, we succeeded in replacing all of the electricity used in the entire facility with renewable energy, and we have achieved virtually zero CO2 emissions thanks to carbon offsets.
We are doing this in order to realize our ideals for the environment and society. Going forward, GYRE will continue to take a number of specific actions.
GYRE SUSTAINABILITY ACTIONS 15
Use 100% renewable energy.

We stopped providing plastic drip bags for umbrellas and we are using biomass-blend garbage bags in common areas.
Strive to eliminate plastic throughout the building.
We aim to refrain from using plastic materials, even in items such as shopping bags and straws.
Remove plastic from vending machines.
Vending machines in the building have stopped dispensing drinks in PET plastic bottles and we are working to make them entirely plastic-free.
Raise vegetables on the terrace.

In an effort to encourage the cycle of nature's blessings, we started an urban beekeeping operation on a corner of the rooftop.
