Promote CSR as Daigas Group
The Daigas Group aims to become a corporate group that helps further evolution of customers' livelihood and businesses. To this end, the management and employees act based on the “Daigas Group CSR Charter” which stipulates basic concept of our CSR. As the Group's business field is expanding, the scope of its stakeholders-customers, local communities, shareholders and employees-all of whom are affected by our business operations, is expanding further.
In order to recognize the impact our business activities may have on society and the environment, and conduct business while taking such impact into account, the Daigas Group has been promoting CSR activities. Specifically, in 2009, the Group introduced CSR indicators under each chapter of the CSR Charter to promote CSR activities and visualize their processes.
In FY2018, we reviewed important aspects for the Group's CSR (materiality), which we had managed over the past three years, by turning to opinions of outside knowledgeable people, and identified 10 materiality items.
Under the “CSR Promotion System” that serves as a basis of our CSR activities, we are striving to accurately evaluate what we are doing and what we have achieved, as measured by the results of each materiality indicator, while making our PDCA (plan-do-check-act) management more effective.
CSR Promotion System
The “CSR Promotion Council,” consisting of executives, deliberates CSR plans and reports on results of activities under the supervision of the President of Osaka Gas. From the viewpoint of integrating the promotion of overall CSR activities, the Daigas Group has established the “CSR Committee” which CSR & Environment Department coordinates and advances group-wide CSR activities. The committee, led by the “CSR Executive” (Vice President), is composed of the heads of business units.
To cover all of the five fields stipulated under the Daigas Group CSR Charter, the Environment Subcommittee, the Social Contribution Subcommittee, the Compliance Subcommittee, the Information Security Subcommittee, and the Risk Management Subcommittee were established to promote CSR activities in a cross-departmental manner. All these moves represent the Daigas Group's efforts to strengthen CSR activities to live up to higher social expectations from society through communication with internal and external stakeholders.

Efforts to promote CSR activities and visualize the process
In 2009, the Daigas Group introduced CSR Indicators under each chapter of the CSR Charter to promote CSR activities and visualize the process. Under the Group's policy of promoting CSR, the current CSR Indicators cover the medium-term period between FY2018 and FY2021. Some of the indicators, however, are reviewed on a single-year basis as a result of dialogue with stakeholders.

Efforts by Core Daigas Group Companies
Osaka Gas Urban Development Co., Ltd.
Osaka Gas Urban Development encourages its employees to obtain a certification as a “real estate trade human rights promoter.”
Osaka Gas Urban Development Co., Ltd. has been encouraging its employees to obtain certification as a “real estate trade human rights promoter,” awarded by Osaka Prefecture and the liaison group tasked with handling human rights issues in real estate trade.
A “human rights awareness promoter” chosen from each workplace will take a “real estate trade human rights promoter” seminar during his or her tenure as “a human rights awareness promoter” to receive certification. A certified “real estate trade human rights promoters” has played a key role in enhancing human rights awareness within each workplace.
At each workplace, study sessions for human rights awareness enhancement are held periodically under the leadership of a “human rights awareness promoter,” using educational material designed to enhance human rights awareness, developed by the Osaka Gas Human Rights Awareness Center and human rights groups. Other activities undertaken at each workplace include watching a human rights awareness video and visiting various facilities related to human rights protection. Furthermore, a lecture session on human rights awareness is held once a year for all employees.
OGIS-RI Co., Ltd.
We are promoting the work-life balance of employees.
OGIS-RI Co., Ltd. is working on promoting the work-life balance of employees. By establishing a work environment in which each employee can work flexibly in accordance with his or her life stage and can feel fulfilled through work, we aim to create innovation all the time and provide highly value-added services to customers.
For example, we are striving to establish a work environment and system in which employees can work without worry by promoting telecommuting, and introducing child-rearing and family-care leave systems that surpass legal requirements. We have also supported employees to help them lead healthy and fulfilling lives proactively by introducing various programs, including flex-time working, special paid holidays and incentive money for their mental refreshment, and special leave for volunteer work.
Osaka Gas Chemicals Co., Ltd.
We are working on promoting diversity as a means of enhancing our company's corporate competitiveness.
Behind such efforts is our company's goal of establishing a flexible organizational structure in which excellent human resources with diversified backgrounds can play effective roles in corporate operations.
In 2013, we inaugurated an organization tasked with promoting diversity. Starting with a commitment from the President for diversity, Osaka Gas Chemicals implemented a range of measures to diversify the Company, including the empowerment of women, expanded support of child rearing by employees, and review of personnel management systems. Thanks to these measures, Osaka Gas Chemicals was certified by the Osaka City Government as “a leading company in Osaka City in terms of the empowerment of women,” and was awarded “two stars” in March 2016. On the leverage of the certification, we have continued to take further actions, even in FY2018 and later, to promote diversity, including the introduction of a telecommuting system, aimed at achieving a work-life balance for employees while enhancing productivity.
We will continue to work hard on this front in the future.
