Values-Driven Commitment to ESG (Environment, Social, Governance)
Recognizing that climate change poses a risk to human health, including the spread of infectious diseases, Takeda has made environmental efforts a priority. To date, Takeda has met and exceeded its previously established 2020 environmental goals ahead of schedule, including reducing its CO2 emissions by 33.7% compared to 2005 levels. Furthering the Company’s commitment to the environment, today Takeda will unveil its new 2040 targets to achieve carbon neutrality across its value chain. Takeda intends to do this by eliminating all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its operations (Scopes 1 and 2), working with its suppliers to significantly reduce their emissions (Scope 3), and addressing remaining Scope 3 emissions through verified carbon offsets. Beginning with FY19 GHG emissions, the Company commits to carbon neutrality (Scopes 1, 2, and 3) through the purchase of renewable energy and verified carbon offsets, while simultaneously working to reduce emissions from its operations and suppliers.
In addition to Takeda’s environmental efforts, its overall commitment to ESG – including the Access to Medicines Strategy and Global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program – has been recognized by multiple benchmark ESG indices. Since 2014, Takeda has risen 15 spots to No. 5 in the latest Access to Medicines Index, which measures commitment and achievements in the field of patient access to medicine and treatment globally.
