Management Approach

Fundamental concept

Through the provision of products and services, including natural gas, the Osaka Gas Group is committed to reducing the environmental impact of business activities. By harmonizing its business activities with the environment, the Group will strive to create a sustainable society.

Environmental conservation on a local and a global scale is an extremely important mission for the Osaka Gas Group, whose operations center on the energy business. In accordance with the “Osaka Gas Group Environmental Activities Policy” we established in FY2007, the Osaka Gas Group is lessening the environmental impact of its business activities through the provision of natural gas and other products and services. And through our business activities, we contribute to environmental improvement and the development of sustainable societies locally, nationally, and internationally by pursuing harmony with the environment and making efficient use of energy and resources.

Environmental Management Indicator: Environmental Management Efficiency

Osaka Gas uses “environmental management efficiency” as an indicator to assess progress in environmental management in a continuous, integrated manner. This indicator is the total monetary value of seven environmental impacts* per gas sold. The smaller the figure for environmental management efficiency, the greater the reduction in environmental impact per amount of gas sold.

* Environmental impacts
GHG emissions, NOx emissions, COD (chemical oxygen demand), final disposal of general / industrial waste, final disposal of excavated soil, chemical emissions, use of water supply and industrial water

Targets and results

The environmental management efficiency for FY 2017 was given as 52.5 yen/1,000 m³ , achieving the target set for the year.

Targets Results
Environmental Management Efficiency 58 yen/1,000 m³ or less 52.5 yen/1,000 m³

Actions taken

Actions taken to reduce the impact of business activities on the environment, measured by an increase in environmental management efficiency

At LNG terminals, we have continued to operate energy-saving facilities, such as cogeneration systems and cryogenic power generation systems. At electric power stations, we have begun operating highly-efficient fossil-based power generation facilities while introducing renewable energy sources. At office buildings, we have promoted company-wide energy-saving through “Green Gas Buildings” activities. All employees of the Osaka Gas Group have worked on reducing the environmental impact of business activities by operating the Environmental Management System (EMS) toward the ultimate goal of cutting overall greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, we have reduced the environmental impact of business activities by recycling drilling soil discharged during the gas pipelines works. Consequently, the Environmental Management Efficiency for FY2017 came to 52.5 yen/1,000 m³.
