CSR Charter ⅡHarmonizing with the Environment and Contributing to Realizing a Sustainable Society

Environmental Communication

Principle and Outline

To realize a low-carbon society, it is important that we not limit our perspective to the activities of a single company but instead heighten environmental awareness across society as a whole and take action to conserve energy. The Daigas Group engages in efforts to raise the environmental awareness of each and every employee, seeks to educate the public through exhibitions, and supports/participates in the activities of various environmental and business groups. We are also dispatching employees to offer presentations on energy and the environment to children who will be responsible for the next generation.

Employee Environmental Education, Participation in Organizations

Various events during the Environment Month

Every year in June, designated as Environment Month, employees of the Daigas Group engage in various environmental activities. Among them are energy-saving efforts at offices, environmental preservation activities, environmental education both inside and outside the Company, and participation in regional environmental events such as cleaning activities. By participating in these activities, each and every employee comes to recognize the great connection existing between his or her activities, and their impact on the environment. Environmental activities during the month provide Daigas Group employees with opportunities to recognize the importance of continuing efforts to build an environmentally harmonious society.

Every June, Osaka Gas hosts an environmental symposium primarily for employees as part of environmental education. In FY2019 the symposium was held at the Osaka Gas Building (in Chuo-ku, Osaka) on July 31, attended by approximately 190 people.

Speeches were given by Yukari Takamura, then professor at the Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Nagoya University, on “The Paris Accord and Post-Paris Accord Global Trends” and by Shigeo Kato, general manager of the Sustainability Management Division at Ricoh Company, Ltd., on “Ricoh’s Sustainability—Achieving a Decarbonized Society.”

The CO2 emissions from the Osaka Gas Building on the day of the symposium (approximately 2 t-CO2) were offset through credits obtained by introducing gas systems to customers.
