At Tokyo Gas Group, we seek the attainment of a sustainable society where all people can live diverse, comfortable and fulfilling lives. To that end we will work together with local communities to resolve social issues as a company that people will continue to trust and make their first choice, engaging in those activities that Tokyo Gas Group is uniquely positioned to implement.
2. Three key fields
（1）Building communities and a way of life that is safe and secure
（2）Building a society and a way of life that is good for the environment
（3）Enriching our life and culture
Our local branch offices and our corporate museums provide and share information on disaster countermeasures at disaster prevention events to enable us to coordinate smoothly with local authorities and communities during disasters.
For example, at one local training event for disaster prevention hosted by a local authority, we explained how to reset gas meters that have shut off during an earthquake with a seismic intensity of 5 or more. We also provided other useful information to enhance the safety and security of our customers in their daily lives.
Since 2006, we have further developed our own disaster prevention events for families with the aim of enhancing the disaster prevention capabilities of local communities. These "Iza! Kaeru Caravan!" events, as they are called, are organized jointly with Plus Arts (an NPO) and are held at our Gas Science Museum. In fiscal 2016, 7,218 customers visited these events and learned the skills and knowledge that they may need in the event of an earthquake.
The Ultra Energy Saving Handbook produced by Tokyo Gas is full of simple ideas on how to save energy in everyday life and explains their impact. These useful tips are published on the Tokyo Gas website and publicized at various events.
We also help people lead environmentally friendlier lifestyles through programs such as our eco-cooking*1 classes, which teach people how to cook and eat greener.*1 "Eco-cooking" is a registered trademark of Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd.

Tokyo Gas Group has been helping to empower people with disabilities and build a more cohesive society*2 as an official partner of the Japan Para-Sports Association (JPSA) since 2013, and in fiscal 2016 we launched a scheme to train and appoint “para sports support leaders” capable of leading and supporting action in the workplace. We are developing a corporate culture that encourages involvement in activities to support para sports, for example, by creating opportunities for employees and their families to experience para sports themselves, watch para sports events, and meet competitors. By organizing para sports exhibitions at our facilities and providing the option to donate to the JPSA through Tokyo Gas’s online members’ program, we are also broadening our support activities to embrace our customers as well. Looking ahead, we are exploring support activities undertaken in partnership with other firms and ways to work with local authorities to contribute to children and young people’s education. One activity currently being considered as part of the Tokyo 2020 Official Programme is an extracurricular program of participatory events that will enable elementary schoolchildren to experience para sports for themselves. This will be held at Shin-Toyosu Brillia Running Stadium, which is co-run by Tokyo Gas Site Development.
*2 A “cohesive society” is what the Japanese government’s Cabinet Office proposes to achieve through a range of policies designed to create a society whose members “develop as rounded, humane individuals equipped with all the skills necessary to contribute as full-fledged members of society” and that “nurtures and supports children and young people and enables everyone to live safely and securely, regardless of age or disability.”
