Editorial Policy

Tokyo Gas Group believes that the foundation of CSR lies in achieving its public mission and fulfilling its social responsibilities by conducting daily business activities in accordance with our Management Philosophy and Corporate Action Philosophy. The Group has determined its key CSR activities, the specific issues to pursue (“material aspects”), and its goals (CSR indicators), and is pursuing its CSR activities accordingly.
 
In addition to providing an overview of the Group’s CSR management, this report further describes in detail its specific CSR activities during fiscal 2016, organized under six key CSR activities.
 
In the production of this 2017 edition, we have also paid special attention to the following:
(1) For institutional investors and other experts requiring more detailed information, we have supplemented our description of our CSR activities with a CSR data section, and have expanded and improved its search function.
(2) Following on the full liberalization of Japan’s electricity retail market in April 2016, the gas retail market was fully liberalized in April 2017. This year we have included a special report on this important development titled “A Second Year of Unparalleled Competition in the Energy Market.”
(3) We have clearly indicated the relationship between the Group’s businesses to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
 
Production of this report 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.
