Stakeholder Engagement

Dialogue and Cooperation with Stakeholders

Dialogue and Cooperation with Stakeholders

The Daigas Group is focusing on active engagement with stakeholders through dialogue to recognize various possible issues involved in its CSR and to come up with mutually acceptable solutions to such issues, based on the Daigas Group CSR Charter and Daigas Group Code of Conduct. For example, the Daigas Group has been promoting dialogue with the Kansai Consumers' Association Liaison Commission, the Osaka Voluntary Action Center, and the Osaka Gas Labor Union. Furthermore, the Group is sharing information and cooperating as a member of the Global Compact Network Japan, and actively taking part in the formulation of various policy measures by the government and municipalities. The Group is also active as a member of the International Gas Union (IGU) , aiming at promotion of the global gas industry.

One of the results of such engagement is that five business associations formed by partner companies undertaking gas-related services established the Code of Ethics respectively in response to the Group's policy. The Group is also actively engaging with various stakeholders, such as businesses, universities and NPOs.

It was held at the request of investors, and six investing institutions participated. We held a question-and-answer session with investors about future CO2 reductions and prospects for measures, internal structures including governance, inter-organizational exchanges, incorporating CSR activities in the value chain, and ESG benchmark companies. In response to this industry’s first ESG meeting, some voiced their preference that the Group continue to hold regular meetings in the future and understand the progress of our Group’s CSR activities.
