Takeda is helping to spearhead implementation of the United Nations Global Compact 10 Principles, supporting them as a member of the LEAD program.
The United Nations Global Compact is a worldwide framework for promoting voluntary actions by corporations as responsible corporate citizens. Participating businesses and organizations are asked to support and implement 10 principles (GC 10 principles) relating to “Human Rights,” “Labor,” “Environment” and “Anti-Corruption.” Takeda joined the Global Compact in 2009, incorporating the GC 10 principles into every aspect of its corporate activities and deepening its relationships with stakeholders. In January 2011, Takeda took the further step of becoming a member of the newly established LEAD program. Together with around 60 other participating companies worldwide, Takeda will help to lead the implementation and dissemination of the principles of the United Nations Global Compact.
