Signing of UN Global Compact
In March 2016 Tokyo Gas  became a signatory to the UN Global Compact* to better realize the Challenge 2020 Vision and to impart our CSR practice with a more global perspective as a responsible member of the international community. We will use this as a springboard for more advanced CSR management.

UN Global Compact
The UN Global Compact was launched by then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan at the World Economic Forum in 1999, and officially inaugurated by the United Nations in New York in 2000. As an international initiative designed to achieve “sound globalization” and “sustainable societies,” it calls on companies to implement their business strategies and activities in adherence to 10 principles in the four fields of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.

Action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The UN Sustainable Development Summit held at the United Nations Headquarters in September 2015 was attended by the leaders of more than 150 countries and resulted in the adoption of “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” This is a plan of action for people, the planet, and prosperity, and it consists of a declaration, 17 sustainable development goals, and 169 targets that businesses too are expected to sign up to and voluntarily work toward achieving.
Tokyo Gas Group has long pursued CSR activities in accordance with its Basic Policy on CSR, which requires the steady implementation of action to address social challenges through business while constantly monitoring the expectations and demands of society. We are now reviewing how our business activities relate to global social challenges in light of the adoption of the SDGs. 
As a first step toward addressing the SDGs, we have raised Group employees’ understanding of them by holding quizzes via the intranet and inviting outside speakers to give seminars at which participants have learned through games about how businesses can help tackle social issues. Further activities will be organized to broaden awareness among Group employees, and Tokyo Gas Group will continue to help tackle the challenges faced by society though its business activities.
