Smart Aeon

Aeon is working on the development of Smart Aeon, our next-generation Eco Stores that are environmentally friendly as well as energy-efficient and disaster-resilient.

In addition to building stores with lower environmental impacts, we also set out to develop next-generation Smart Aeon stores that can achieve efficient use of energy and disaster prevention from the perspective of civic- and community-building efforts carried out in cooperation with local communities.

Working​ to build environmentally friendly stores, Aeon has defined Eco Stores as outlets that achieve at least 20% lower CO2 emissions in comparison with conventional stores, and a CASBEE* ranking of A or higher. Since the opening of our first Eco Store, the Aeon Town Chikusa Shopping Center in May 2005, Aeon has opened twelve Eco Stores by February 2013. In September 2012, we started working on further developments for our next-generation (Smart Aeon) Eco Stores. In addition to building stores with lower environmental impacts, we also formulated five criteria to achieve efficient use of energy and disaster prevention from the perspective of civic- and community-building efforts carried out in cooperation with local communities. Starting with the opening of the first Smart Aeon store, Aeon Mall Yahata Higashi, in March 2013, eleven more Smart Aeon stores has been opened as of the end of February 2019.

  • CASBEE: An environmental performance evaluation system for architecture that was developed by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in 2001. It is used as an index that objectively evaluates and displays such performances as consideration for the global and surrounding environment, waste in running costs, and comfort for users.
