Management of Engagement with and Contribution to Society

Management Approach

Fundamental concept

The Daigas Group aims to promote sustainable regional communities through communication with society under five themes—working with regional communities; history, culture and towns; sports and health; safety and security; and diet.

Through business activities rooted in communities, the Daigas Group grasps changes and issues in the environment surrounding the communities and builds good relations with various stakeholders. While striving for active information disclosure to gain understanding of our business, we are engaged in activities to create value in communities (regional co-creation) as a member of the communities and society mainly in five fields: working with regional communities; history, culture and towns; sports and health; safety and security; and diet. An example of the activities is the Small Light Campaign led by our employees. By actively working on these activities that use the resources our Group has, we will contribute to the development of sustainable regional communities where people can live a comfortable and spiritually rich life.

Actions taken

Continued communication activities and social contribution Activities

By continuing to undertake activities aimed at enhancing communication with society through energy and environment education, food education, disaster-prevention education and fire education while taking advantage of the assets it has amassed through business operations, the Daigas Group aims to realize the creation of regional value. In FY2021, the Group supported welfare facilities through the "Small Light Campaign” and implemented food education, disaster-prevention, and environment education programs. The Group also worked together with local municipalities and experts in the educational and medical fields to resolve local issues.

Targets/Plans/Results

In FY2021, due to the cancellation of various events and the closure of the Gas Science Museum, located on the premises of the Senboku LNG Terminal, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the number of educational events for energy, environment, food and fire held totaled 1,742. In addition, a total of 641 events aimed at promoting the Group’s social contribution were held, including activities under the “Small Light Campaign” and activities by athletic clubs. The number of social contribution activities held by the Research Institute for Culture, Energy and Life (CEL) of Osaka Gas and the Osaka Gas Group Welfare Foundation totaled 136 over the year.
