Since establishing the Environmental Protection Measures Committee in 1970, Takeda has continued to undertake environmental protection activities from a long-term perspective. In 1992, Takeda revised the 10 Basic Principles Regarding Pollution to enact the Basic Principles on the Environment to promote the entire Takeda Group's pursuit of global activities in response to environmental concerns worldwide.
In 2010, Takeda formulated the Takeda Group Environmental Action Plan to specify environmental issues and targets for the Group in and outside Japan over the medium to long term. We have set concrete numerical targets for measures to combat global warming, reduce waste, and promote other initiatives. We will review our progress each year as we conduct our activities.
We recognize the environment, health, and safety (EHS) as important issues that cannot be separated, but must be dealt with holistically. For this reason, in 2011 we formulated the Pharmaceutical Production Division Global EHS Policy as a set of guidelines for all production sites under the management of the Pharmaceutical Production Division. In June 2012, we developed this policy further as the Global EHS Policy for the entire Group worldwide.
