Takeda works to fulfill its social responsibilities as a company committed to improving people’s lives by tackling issues confronting global society and reporting on its activities in line with international standards.
For Takeda, the basis of CSR is embodied in our corporate mission of “striving towards better health for patients worldwide through leading innovation in medicine.” In short, we believe that our most important responsibility to society is in helping patients and healthcare professionals through our core business.
From another perspective, there would be no sustainability of our own if not for a sustainable healthy society. We have developed a deep awareness of this truth over our 230-year history. In particular, as our business becomes global, we realize that our role as a corporate citizen has become more important than ever before. In 2009, we joined the United Nations Global Compact, pledging to uphold the 10 principles of the compact relating to “Human Rights,” “Labor,” “Environment” and “Anti-Corruption.” We have since incorporated the principles into every aspect of our corporate activities.
