Sustainability Approach | Takeda Pharmaceuticals
Our founder, Chobei Takeda, served patients with integrity, driven by his purpose. It’s his leadership and commitment to run a good business that made all the difference. These patient- and society-centric values continue to guide us today – we call it purpose-led sustainability.
We create value for the world by using our core strengths and capabilities to help solve key societal challenges and address patients’ needs in the long-term. This purpose-led and values-based approach drives all of our actions and decisions, and our commitments across our Patient, People and Planet imperatives, underpinned by Data and Digital.
We responsibly translate science into highly innovative, life-transforming treatments and vaccines for patients and communities with limited or no options.
We aim to create a diverse and inclusive organization where people can thrive, grow and realize their own potential while enabling our purpose.
We will harness our unique capabilities to deliver a high standard of environmental leadership that protects our planet’s natural systems and human health.
We aim to create as many positive impacts as possible in our sustainability efforts, which requires a disciplined approach in choosing which initiatives to take on and making sure they are carried out effectively.
