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 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.

Furthering the company’s commitment to the environment, Takeda unveiled new 2040 targets to achieve carbon neutrality across its value chain. 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 commits to carbon neutrality (Scopes 1, 2, and 3) through the purchase of renewable energy and verified carbon offsets, while simultaneously working to reduce emissions from its operations and suppliers.

Our values of Takeda-ism and Patient, Trust, Reputation, and Business guide us in our obligation to protect the environment and our patients and motivate us to act urgently on climate change.



Takeda’s Commitment:

  • By 2040, Takeda commits to being carbon neutral by eliminating all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its operations (Scopes 1 and 2), and reducing its Scope 3 emissions by 50% (from FY2018) through continued educating and influencing its suppliers on their greenhouse gas reduction efforts, and by addressing remaining Scope 3 emissions through verified carbon offsets.

  • By 2025, Takeda commits to reducing 40% (from FY2016) of GHG emissions in its operations through a combination of renewable energy purchases, including large-scale power purchase agreements and an aggressive internal energy management program, and 15% (from FY2018) of Scope 3 emissions through educating and influencing suppliers.

  • In 2020, Takeda commits to be carbon neutral across its value chain (Scopes 1, 2 and 3) beginning with FY2019 GHG emissions through the use of renewable energy and verified carbon offsets.
