Management Approach

Fundamental concept

The Daigas Group will work on creating regional value by supporting community building under five themes—people, history and culture, sports, safety and security, and diet—and undertaking volunteer activities.

The Daigas Group conducts business rooted in communities, and its business cannot succeed without good relations with these communities. Actively disclosing information to promote better understanding of our business is a matter of course. Based on the “Small Light Campaign,” an initiative led by employees, we are working on creating regional value (joint efforts with local communities) mainly in five fields—people, history and culture, sports, safety and security, and diet. We are undertaking these activities by making active use of the Daigas Group's business resources. By doing so, we can contribute to the development of local communities while boosting the pride of our employees.

Joining hands with local communities to create new social value

Activities to Deepen Communication with Society and Social Contribution Activities

The CSR indicator figure listed as “Number of events held (on-site dietary and energy/environment seminars, etc.)” represents the number of educational events the Daigas Group sponsored to enhance people's understanding of energy, food and fire use. The CSR indicator figure listed as “Number of contacts” means the number of visits by the general public to the Gas Science Museum and the Himeji Gas Energy Hall. The CSR indicator figure listed as “Number of events (for society contribution) held” indicates the number of events the Daigas Group has hosted as part of its efforts to promote social contribution activities, including baseball clinics by the Group's athletic club members and educational seminars targeting young people. In FY2018, the CSR indicator figure listed as “a number of contacts” was integrated into the category, “Events held to enhance communication.”

Targets and results

In FY2018, the Daigas Group held 1,382 educational events for energy, environment, food and fire. In the year, 1,392 communication-enhancement events were held at the Gas Science Museum and the Himeji Gas Energy Hall. A total of 529 events aimed at promoting the Group's social contribution were held, including activities under the “Small Light Campaign” and activities by athletic clubs. In addition, the number of social contribution activities by the Research Institute for Culture, Energy and Life (CEL) of Osaka Gas and the Osaka Gas Group Welfare Foundation totaled 570 in the year.

Actions taken

Continued communication activities and social contribution Activities

By continuing to undertake activities aimed at enhancing communication with society through energy and environment education, food education, disaster-prevention education and fire education, while taking advantage of the assets it has amassed through business operations, the Daigas Group aims to realize the creation of regional value. In FY2018, the Group supported welfare facilities through the “Small Light Campaign” events. The Group teamed up with local municipalities and experts in the educational and medical fields to solve regional problems, using educational programs developed by Osaka Gas to promote food education, disaster-prevention education and environmental preservation. In food education, the Group, driven by the addition of “washoku,” traditional Japanese food culture, to UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list, opened a new-style seminar promoting soup stock for Japanese food in FY2018, enabling participants to study the value of such soup stock at a temporary facility set up near their homes or offices. The experience-based seminar, conducted by Osaka Gas employees dispatched to customers, is designed to promote a healthy diet among the general public and pass on Japan's rich food culture to the future.

Furthermore, the Group actively undertakes social contribution activities, including baseball and soccer teaching sessions held for children by athletic clubs of Osaka Gas and activities aimed at supporting healthy growth of young people.
