Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use
Many species are facing imminent extinction due to human activities, and natural ecosystems around the world are being disrupted at an alarming rate. Tokyo Gas Group considers the realization of rich ecosystems to be one of our important business bases in order to protect the global environment while sustaining our business, and has formulated its Guidelines for Promoting Biodiversity Conservation. Specifically, we are monitoring conditions along each value chain to mitigate their impact on ecosystems, practicing forest conservation at our own Nagano Tokyo Gas Forest, and engaging in a variety of other initiatives.
In fiscal 2016, we added an item on biodiversity conservation to our Environmental Policies, and we will be both ramping up our efforts in this area and adopting a more global approach to protecting biodiversity as our own business activities become more globalized.
