>ABOUT TAKEDA >Crisis Management
Preventing emergency situations that could result in considerable impact on our management, or responding immediately when they occur, is an important aspect of the Takeda Group's corporate governance. Takeda has therefore been working to strengthen its crisis management function even further, in addition to ensuring adequate audits and other internal controls and promoting compliance on a Group-wide basis.
When implementing crisis management initiatives, it is important to act with fairness and integrity to ensure the Takeda Group's employees and finances are safeguarded. This is also a responsibility that Takeda must fulfill toward its stakeholders, who include shareholders, customers, suppliers, employees, communities and society at large. Takeda has therefore formulated a Business Continuity Plan (BCP), as part of its response, to prevent the interruption of business activities in the event of any accident or disaster, or, where interruption is unavoidable, to resume business at the earliest opportunity, in addition to the existing "Takeda Group Crisis Management Guideline" and "Crisis Management Rules." Through these initiatives, Takeda will continue to fulfill its mission of maintaining a reliable supply of products.
Takeda strives to ensure that all possible preventive measures are taken to avoid potential crises in accordance with the "Takeda Group Crisis Management Guideline," which comprises basic policies, rules and standards for crisis management. The guidelines also underpin systems and operation we have put in place to respond to each type of crisis swiftly and appropriately.
In this way, we aim to minimize any potential harm to employees, any impact on the Takeda Group's finances, and any effect on society at large in the event of a crisis.
Crises denote situations in which:
Each division of Takeda and its Group company is responsible for establishing its own crisis management system, implementing preventive measures and taking appropriate action if a crisis occurs. In the case of a crisis that requires Group-wide action, we maintain mutual cooperation and the "Crisis Management Committee," which has its office in the Human Resources Department of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, coordinates a joint understanding of the situation and any relevant information. The Committee provides necessary reports to top management and supports each division and Group company to take countermeasures, later following up on the implementation of the countermeasures.
