The foundation of Takeda’s sustainable procurement program is Takeda’s Supplier Code of Conduct, which is a key document for communicating Takada’s position on the performance standards suppliers are expected to work toward as a part of doing business with Takeda. The Supplier Code covers principles in business ethics and anticorruption, human rights, fair labor and employment standards, data privacy, animal welfare, safety, health and environment, as well as general management systems covering the topics covered in the code. Takeda has incorporated the Supplier Code of Conduct as part of its procurement-managed supplier qualification process and uses its risk assessment model to prioritize suppliers for further review.
Takeda expects suppliers to adhere to applicable legal requirements and aspire to meet the expectations contained in Takeda’s Supplier Code of Conduct.
Takeda intends to evaluate suppliers’ fulfillment of the principles contained in the Supplier Code of Conduct, and expects suppliers to cooperate, including remediating identified issues. Takeda will collaborate with suppliers committed to improving conditions or issues identified with the goal of managing risks and creating long-term, sustainable value.
Takeda’s Supplier Code of Conduct is available in several languages from the links below. Suppliers are asked to review the Takeda Supplier Code, and acknowledge receipt of the Code as part of conducting business with Takeda.
