It is imperative for the global community to address global-scale climate change. The Paris Agreement, a UN accord on climate change, came into force in November 2016. The response to the climate change is seen as one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations. It is also recognized as part of international efforts since 2020 to establish a framework for solving issues related to climate change. The Japanese government has set the goal of curtailing greenhouse gas emissions in the country by 26% in fiscal 2031 compared with the fiscal 2014 level, and presented it to the United Nations. The goal has been incorporated into a plan drawn up by the Japanese government to curb global warming.

The Osaka Gas Group believes making efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is an extremely important mission for the Group, given that it is a corporate group whose primary business field is energy. The Osaka Gas Group is focusing on reducing CO2 emissions not only at facilities run by the Group, such as city gas processing plants and electric power stations, but also at energy-consuming customers—by proposing and diffusing environment-friendly natural gas that emits less CO2, highly energy-efficient products and services, and introducing renewable energy sources.

The Osaka Gas Group will conduct its business with more attention paid to environmental preservation under the Long-Term Management Vision 2030. Specifically, the Group aims to cut CO2 emissions by a total of 70 million tons between fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2031 as part of its efforts to help create a low-carbon society.

Long-term goals covering the period between fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2031
Aim to reduce CO2 emissions by a total of
about 70 million tons during the period*
* Include reductions at customers and overseas reductions (representing about 2% of the government's total reduction target)
Subject to calculation

CO2 emissions that are expected to be cut between fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2031 as a result of the Osaka Gas Group's plan to introduce highly energy-efficient facilities in fiscal 2018 or after, and its promotion of low-carbon energy sources. (Each year's projected reduction amounts are added up. )

Calculation method

The amount of expected reductions of emissions due to the use of highly energy-efficient facilities and low-carbon energy sources is calculated based on the following formula.

Extent of expected use of highly
energy-efficient technologies and
low-carbon energy sources
Reduction effects expected if existing facilities and conventional energy sources are replaced by highly energy-efficient facilities and low-carbon energy sources

Energy saving during the city gas production process

The Group will strive to save energy by promoting LNG cryogenic power generation and making the overall operation efficient.

Introduction of highly energyefficient fossil-based power generation

The Osaka Gas Group has adopted highly energy-efficient power generation technologies that are advanced and optimal, and are commercially feasible including the gas turbine combined cycle method.

Highly energy-efficient distributed system

The Osaka Gas Group strives to diffuse a gas cogeneration system, in which electricity is generated using city gas, and the heat generated in that process is used for heating space and water. The Group also aims to spread the use of fuel cells.

Efforts to diffuse natural gas and its advanced use

The Osaka Gas Group aims to diffuse natural gas, which emits CO2 less than any other fossil-derived fuels. The Group also develops and offers highly energy-efficient systems and appliances.

Energy services realize energy saving

The Osaka Gas Group supports comprehensive energysaving for customers by offering IT-based energy services and using the know-how the Group has built up through its past operations.

Effective use of energy in local communities and society as a whole

The Osaka Gas Group promotes the effective use of electricity and heat that have less environmental impact in local communities and society as a whole by building the “smart energy network” and the so-called "reverse power flow" in which electricity generated by the distributed system flows back to the power grid.
