A total of 29 suppliers began new business transactions with Osaka Gas in FY2022. In the year, no business deals were barred from being started due to violations of standards set in the fields of environmental and social impacts, human rights, and labor practices.
Specific Actions Taken Regarding Materiality
The Daigas Group has formulated the Daigas Group Procurement Policy and has made it known to and understood by the Group’s suppliers, together with the Daigas Group Procurement Policy for Suppliers before proceeding with a new business transaction.
We also endeavor to achieve mutual development of the entire value chain by fulfilling our social responsibilities together with our business partners based on questionnaire surveys of major suppliers.
Measures in material procurement
We have a system for explaining the Daigas Group Procurement Policy and the Daigas Group Procurement Policy for Suppliers to our suppliers and confirming their commitment to sustainable activities before proceeding with a new business transaction.
A questionnaire survey was conducted of 176 major suppliers to check their sustainability efforts. Furthermore, when the suppliers conduct business transactions with the Daigas Group, they are asked to observe the “Green Purchasing Guidelines” set by the Group, which are attached to the specifications for the transactions.
Sustainability activity survey of suppliers conducted to promote information sharing
on social and environmental issues to be tackled by companies
We conduct a questionnaire survey of suppliers on sustainable activities to provide a sense of security to customers when they choose the Daigas Group, as well as taking into account social and environment aspects in doing business. The survey is based on the Daigas Group Procurement Policy and the Daigas Group Procurement Policy for Suppliers.
In FY2022, the survey was conducted of 35 gas appliance makers to assess the status of their efforts for a total of 59 items on the eight themes of compliance, human rights, labor, occupational health and safety, product safety and quality, environmental conservation, ethics and prevention of corruption, and policy enforcement system. In addition, we conducted a survey of 208 service companies and engineering firms, to which the Company has entrusted certain business duties, and of eight LNG suppliers.
