We achieved a major accomplishment 50 years ago when we brought LNG to
Japan for the first time from Alaska.
Now we are pursuing various avenues to establish reliable energy supply in our current age of uncertainty to create a bright future with our customers, business partners, and society.

Our future goals

Our goal is to be a business group which continues to create value
as a leader in the future energy systems.

We will create value by working with customers, business partners, and society to identify and solve problems and to quickly and flexibly provide energy and solutions. Natural gas is a pillar of our business, and we believe its use and value will increase due to its stable supply and its environmental and economic characteristics as well as its compatibility with other renewable energy sources, the supply of which can fluctuate.

At the same time, natural gas is a fossil fuel, and as a leading company dealing with natural gas, it is our responsibility to deal forthrightly with the issue of climate change. We will combine natural gas with renewable energies and other new technologies to provide solutions for our lifestyles, society, and the earth.

Company portfolio in 2030
Key figures
  • * Overseas: All overseas businesses
  • ** Solutions, etc.: Ongoing service agreements, engineering, real estate, etc.
  • *** Energy: Domestic gas and power business
  • **** Domestic and international, including purchasing
  • ***** Total no. of gas, power and service agreements (domestically and internationally)
  • ****** LNG equivalent including overseas business and trading

Why aim for these goals?

We are on the cusp of a new age of innovation in the lead-up to 2030,
and we see a huge opportunity for growth.

We believe changing customer perspectives and intensifying social issues, such as from climate change, will lead to significant questioning over the next 10 years about the proper roles of both energy and energy suppliers. We will make “S+3E”* a foundation of our business and actively pursue the major business opportunities that emerge from our changing market environment as we transform the Group in preparation for 2030.

  • * S+3E: Safety + Energy security, Economic efficiency and Environment

Our evolving market environment

  • Decarbonization
    • Growing worldwide demand for decarbonization
    • More companies participating in the RE100 initiative
  • Digitalization
    • Changing ways to communicate and shop
    • Increasing work process efficiency and changing workstyles
  • Diversification in Consumption Behavior
    • Consumption shift from “things” to “experiences” and “value”
    • Decentralization and increase in the number of “prosumers”**
  • Deregulation in
    Energy Market
    • Increased competition among energy providers
    • Changes in industry structure that transcend industrial sectors
  • ** Prosumer: Consumers who engage in production activities (for example, consumers with power generation equipment that sell the power they generate)

Why are we able to attain them?

Using energy to bring about change and taking on the challenges to create a sustainable society is in the Tokyo Gas DNA.

We have developed new products and solutions that include manufacturing processes using clean natural gas, urban development through smart energy networks, and lifestyle design using new technologies such as fuel cells. We have developed new products and solutions and provided a stable energy supply throughout the half century since we introduced LNG to Japan, making us a leading promoter of new energies in Japan and world that launched the new age of natural gas.

How will we attain them?

We will use the strengths of Tokyo Gas Group to
develop business in Japan and overseas.
We will advance the Three Challenges and Five Actions to create and
deliver various types of value.
