Building Momentum for the Success of the Tokyo 2020 GamesWe are working to build momentum toward the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 by holding events related to culture and education, sports, and health, including those part of the Tokyo 2020 Participation Program. Tokyo Gas is particularly focused on activities for the successful hosting of the Paralympic Games. We are working to popularize and boost recognition of Paralympic sports by holding events for participants to experience para sports both inside and outside the company, and by providing employees with the opportunity to watch para sports competitions.

Supporting Management of the Tokyo 2020 GamesWe are currently making preparations to support the management of the Tokyo 2020 Games by maintaining a robust energy supply system for the continuous supply of energy to Games-related facilities. Security is an important issue, so in addition to protecting infrastructure against terrorism and other contingencies, including LNG terminals, pipelines, and governor stations, we are working closely with the central and Tokyo metropolitan governments as well as the police to guard against cyberterrorism.
While we will do our utmost to ensure the success of the Tokyo 2020 Games, we are also aiming to achieve what lies beyond, which is the creation of an inclusive society. To accomplish this, we will seek to raise employee awareness and strive to address customer needs more closely toward improving people’s lives, developing communities, and providing services.
Nurturing Employee AwarenessOur in-house initiatives for creating an inclusive society are led by Olympic and Paralympic Ambassadors appointed at each workplace. These individuals are responsible for promoting para sports and experience-based events hosted by Tokyo Gas while also serving as supporters and guides for the events. One hundred of these ambassadors have volunteered to support the management of the Tokyo 2020 Games.

Para Sports Viewing Day
Alongside Our CustomersWe actively seek to raise public awareness toward the creation of an inclusive society. Also, we educate the next generation by organizing field trips during which elementary school children can participate in simulated experiences of disability and para sports as an opportunity to learn about the importance of diversity in society as well as mutual understanding and support. In addition, we provide various tools for people with disabilities. These include pamphlets and name cards in Braille for visually-impaired customers, online videos using sign language to explain how to restart gas meters after an emergency shutdown, and publication of the One-Handed Cooking recipe book, which has fun, easy cooking instructions for those able to use only one hand due to paralysis or injury.
