Management Approach

Why the topic is material

The Daigas Group’s business began more than a hundred years ago with gas lamps. Since then, the Group has continued to meet the various needs of its customers by developing uses for gas in cooking, hot water, heating, power generation, and more. We also use our strong relationship with customers as a basis for expanding into new territories such as industrial gas, real estate, information communication, new materials, and home services. The Daigas Group considers its meaning for society to be in striving to improve the livelihoods and businesses of its numerous customers, based on its aim to become a corporate group that helps customers both on the livelihood and business fronts for their “further evolution”.
