CSR Charter ⅢBeing a Good Corporate Citizen Contributing to Society
The Osaka Gas 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 Osaka Gas 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 Osaka Gas Group's business resources. By doing so, we can contribute to the development of local communities while boosting the pride of our employees.
