Our Approach to Sustainability


JAPEX believes that our mission is to provide a stable supply of energy and that our business activities themselves are a form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Under this recognition, we discuss and decide on policies and core themes related to CSR and sustainability at the management level, and engage in activities across the entire JAPEX Group.

Basic Concept

Based on a policy to systematically promote CSR throughout the company, JAPEX identifies the core CSR themes "SHINE."

In addition, our management plan sets a policy on sustainability activities, to actively work on solving social issues toward the realization of a sustainable society.

In 2023, we defined the "Materiality" as what connects the core CSR themes "SHINE" and "JAPEX Management Plan 2022-2030."

Based on them, we have been promoting sustainability activities across the entire JAPEX Group, including setting and implementing CSR action plans and goals, and evaluating them from an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) perspective.


Promotion System

The Sustainability Committee, chaired by the President and Representative Director, has been established to deliberate and discuss the management plan and related sustainability matters. Meetings of the Sustainability Committee also has been held as needed to deliberate and discuss the following items related to sustainability.

  • Company-wide policy on sustainability, including the Code of Ethical Conduct
  • Important issues related to ESG
  • Establishment and review of core CSR themes and CSR action plans
  • Dissemination of sustainability information outside the company, such as in the Integrated Report

The Corporate Strategy Dept. supervises the promotion system, including the secretariat of the Sustainability Committee. It also reports annually on the status of sustainability promotion to the Board of Directors.

Information Disclosure

JAPEX strives to disclose our quantitative and qualitative information on sustainability in a timely and appropriate manner.

The Integrated Report, published annually, and CSR action plans and targets are made available on our website. Yearly data on ESG is also available on our website.

JAPEX participates in domestic and global initiatives aimed at realizing a sustainable society, and works in collaboration with various organizations and companies.
