Stakeholder Engagement

Response to Stakeholders' Voices

System for Reflecting the Opinions of Stakeholders

The Daigas Group considers it a matter of course to listen and respond sincerely to questions/requests regarding our products and services, but we also hear a variety of questions, concerns and comments from numerous stakeholders in the course of conducting our business activities. We believe these opinions to be extremely important to enhancing the quality of the Daigas Group's management.

Under these circumstances, we have built the “C-VOICE” database, whereby these customer voices are shared by top-management officials and rank-and-file employees, and are put to good use in improving our business operations and enhancing our service quality.

Mechanism for receiving stakeholder complaints

The Daigas Group responds to the opinions and requests in accordance with the Group's Code of Conduct which incorporated international standards such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Global Compact, while observing domestic laws such as the Act on the Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures and the Whistleblower Protection Act.

Responsibilities

To deal with voices on the environment, Osaka Gas operates a company-wide Environmental Management System (EMS) according to the ISO 14001. As for the voices of local people who are concerned about the possible effects on local communities of our operations, we set up contact desks including customer centers.

To address issues associated with human rights and labor practices, we set up “Compliance Desks” at Osaka Gas's headquarters, major affiliated companies and outside law firms representing Osaka Gas, to receive reports and offer consultation regarding the observance of laws and in-house rules. Employees needing consultation or advice regarding their human rights can contact the “Human Rights Desk,” established at the Human Resources Department. Furthermore, the “Harassment Desk” has been set up for employees facing harassment-related problems in their work. Other systems established for the benefit of employees include the conducting of surveys designed to measure their work-related awareness, periodically holding meetings for the management to hold talks with labor union members, as well as meetings for employees and their superiors.

Theme System
Environment In Osaka Gas, a unified ISO 14001-registered environmental management system (EMS) is deployed across the Company under the supervision of the CSR Executive (Vice President), and all employees work to reduce the environmental impact of business activities and ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations. In addition, the Daigas Group’s domestic affiliates operate their own EMSs, such as ISO 14001-registered systems, Eco Action 21, and the Daigas Group Environmental Management System (OGEMS).
Local community We have improved sections that directly deal with customers, including “Customer Centers,” to enable our customers to express their opinions of our services more expeditiously. Under the leadership of the Head of Customer Services (Head of the Residential Energy Business Unit), we are working out improvement measures in response to customers' opinions and requests while using the “C-VOICE” database.
Human rights For the protection of human rights we have set up “Customer Centers”, which are open to stakeholders such as customers and local community members; we have also established the “Human Rights Desk” at the Human Resources Department, and posted “Human Rights Awareness Promotion Leaders” at each Business Unit and major affiliated companies. In addition, we have also set up “Compliance Desks” at Osaka Gas's headquarters, major affiliated companies and outside law firms representing Osaka Gas to receive reports and offer consultations regarding the observance of laws and in-house rules.
Labor practices We have established “Compliance Desks” at Osaka Gas's headquarters, major affiliated companies and outside law firms representing Osaka Gas in order to receive reports and offer consultations regarding the observance of laws and in-house rules. Furthermore, the “Harassment Desk” has been set up at each in-house organization and each affiliated company to assist employees facing harassment-related problems in their work. Others systems established for the betterment of employees include the conducting of surveys designed to measure their work-related awareness, periodically holding meetings for the management to hold talks with labor union members, as well as meetings for employees and their superiors.
