Basic Policy

The Tokyo Gas Group’s Approach to Environmental Action

Tokyo Gas Group has established an Environmental Philosophy based on its Management Philosophy and Corporate Action Philosophy, a set of medium- to long-term Environmental Policies drawn up on the basis of its Challenge 2020 Vision, and Environmental Protection Guidelines that set targets for environmental activities. With this commitment, the Group is working as one to actively protect the global and local environments.


Environmental Philosophy
The Tokyo Gas Group will promote more sustainable ways of energy use to contribute to the protection of regional and global environments as well as to the sustainable development of society.


Environmental Policies
  1. Reduction of the Environmental Impact of Customers' Energy Use
    Tokyo Gas will actively and continuously attempt to reduce the environmental impact of customers' energy use by promoting the use of environmentally friendly energy (natural gas) and providing highly efficient appliances and systems.
  2.  Reduction of the Total Environmental Impact of Tokyo Gas's Business Operations
    Tokyo Gas will continuously reduce energy intensity and resources used in its business operations through the implementation of efficient and effective environmental management to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society. At the same time, we will reduce our business operations' overall environmental impact by aggressively promoting "green purchasing" and the 3R initiatives (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle).
  3. Strengthening of Environmental Partnerships with the Local and International Communities 
    Tokyo Gas will strengthen its environmental partnerships with both the local and international communities by engaging in a wide variety of programs, such as participation in local environmental events and technology transfers to developing countries.
  4. Promotion of Green Technology R&D Programs 
    Tokyo Gas will promote R&D programs for environmental technologies, including renewable energy, to protect regional and global environments.
  5. Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use 
    Tokyo Gas will recognize the benefits of nature, and will monitor and mitigate the impact of our business activity on biodiversity, promote sustainable use of resources, and conserve biodiversity in partnership with local communities in order to ensure the continued enjoyment of those benefits in the future.
  6. Compliance with Environmental Law and Fulfillment of Social Responsibilities 
    Tokyo Gas will comply with environmental laws, ordinances, agreements, and other relevant standards and regulations, and all employees will practice social responsibility in accordance with global standards.


Environmental Protection Guidelines
We are working to meet the targets set by the guidelines in accordance with our Environmental Policies to create a low-carbon, resource-saving society that coexists with nature.
