About Toda Corporation
Under its corporate credo of "Realizing high-quality construction, safely and on time," Toda Corporation has accumulated extensive technical expertise and experience over the course of its 140-year history. In recent years, Toda has reinforced its existing business-centred on the construction of hospitals, medical facilities and schools-by prioritizing such strategic fields as the construction of production facilities and office buildings. Diligently building a track record in these fields, Toda is concurrently accelerating its activities in business areas peripheral to its mainstay construction business, such as investment projects in the real estate development field. Toda is steadily expanding its business, while remaining highly regarded by customers for the quality it delivers both in Japan and overseas.

About JR East Energy Development
East Japan Railway Company (JR East) established "JR East Energy Development Corporation" in April 2015 to promote the introduction of renewable energy. In developing the project, we will create a "source" to energize the local community by creating a system in which local companies and others can participate as partners. We will continue to develop wind power generation projects that are rooted in the local community.
By supplying the developed renewable energy mainly to railroads, JR East Energy Development will contribute to achieving JR East's goal of using renewable energy to cover approximately 30-40% of its entire energy consumption in order to achieve virtually zero CO2 emissions in the railroad business by 2050.
