Commitment to Carbon Neutrality at Takeda


Recognizing that climate change poses a risk to human health, including the spread of infectious diseases, Takeda has made environmental efforts
 and its commitment to carbon neutrality a priority. To date, Takeda has met and exceeded its previously established 2020 environmental goals ahead of schedule, including reducing its CO2 emissions by 33.7% compared to 2005 levels.

Commitment to Carbon Neutrality at Takeda

To deliver on the company’s commitment to protect the planet, Takeda aims to achieve carbon zero in its own operations and carbon neutrality across its remaining value chain by 2040. Takeda intends to do this by eliminating all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its operations (Scopes 1 and 2), working with its suppliers to significantly reduce their emissions (Scope 3), and addressing remaining Scope 3 emissions through verified carbon offsets. Beginning with FY2019 GHG emissions, Takeda achieved carbon neutrality (Scopes 1, 2, and 3) by a continued focus on internal energy conservation measures, procurement of green energy, and investment in renewable energy certificates and high-quality, verified carbon offsets.
