Building an Environment-Friendly Business that Contributes to the Emergence of 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

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 energy-saving 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.
