Tokyo Gas Group CSR Report 2016

Editorial Policy

This report provides information on how Tokyo Gas Group is meeting society's expectations and addressing the challenges that we face in the LNG value chains that form the core of our business. It is designed to keep our stakeholders clearly informed about the Group's CSR activities. The 2016 edition has the following features:

  1. (1)The Group has determined its key CSR activities and is working as one to implement them. In fiscal 2014, we reviewed these key activities in light of the formulation of the "Main Policies FY2015-2017 toward Realizing the Challenge 2020 Vision", and identified those aspects assessed to be the most important from the perspective of our stakeholders and our company as specific issues ("material aspects").
    In the "CSR at the Tokyo Gas Group" section of this report, we describe the Group's LNG value chain and its impact on society, the processes by which we identify material aspects, and the arrangements that we have in place to promote good CSR practices.
  2. (2)"Key CSR Activities and Material Aspects: Targets and Performance" reports on performance for fiscal 2015 (management situation, results of activities, and so on) as measured by CSR indicators established for each material aspect to assist application of PDCA to our CSR activities.
  3. (3)"Stakeholder Dialogue" focuses on expert opinion concerning supply chain management, which will assume ever greater importance as we expand and globalize our operations as a total energy company.
  4. (4)We have enhanced our Environmental Report, Social Report, and Governance Report to provide investors, CSR researchers and evaluators, and other interested parties with more information to assist their analyses of the Group.

Production of these publications was led by the Editing Working Group, whose members were selected from each of the company's divisions and departments. They carefully checked all the information to be published, confirmed the progress of the PDCA cycle in each area of activity, and coordinated all content with the various departments involved.
