Medium-term Management Plan

The goal of the medium-term plan ending March 2018 is sustained growth of the Hiroshima Gas Group. Based on the view that the liberalization of energy markets and other developments are creating many opportunities for the group, the plan aims to increase the use of gas energy and improve the efficiency of the group’s operations. In addition, Hiroshima Gas is seeking new business activities that can benefit from changes in the business climate.

Six Basic Goals

1. Conserve energy, cut CO2 emissions and improve energy security by increasing the use of natural gas and LPG and using energy more efficiently and responsibly.
2. Supply customers with more value by seeking more ways to provide services from the customers’ perspective and helping support life styles that are more environmentally responsible and safe.
3. Seek new business opportunities and start new businesses in order to respond properly to the liberalization of Japan’s energy market.
4. Earn a reputation as a rewarding workplace and responsible corporate citizen by creating an open-minded organization with priority on fairness and transparency.
5. Develop a workforce that is highly skilled and motivated and also capable of taking on the responsibility for future growth.
6. Improve the Hiroshima Gas Group’s profitability and financial soundness in order to build a powerful corporate structure and sustain growth.
