2022 ESG PORTAL

ESG_HERO

We consider transparent disclosure of our ESG (environment, social, governance) impacts and efforts an important part of how we do business. In the face of global disruption caused by climate change, natural resource scarcity, social volatility and fast-changing technology, what were once considered nonfinancial risks are becoming material and systemic. Companies face increased scrutiny from a host of stakeholders, including customers, investors, employees and policymakers around ESG issues. Takeda is no exception, with growing demand for disclosure from many stakeholders, including investors.

We routinely engage with ESG rating organizations and investors to better understand their expectations and address their priorities in our business activities and disclosures. Through this engagement we heard that as ESG aspects increasingly inform investor decision-making, there is a rising need for robust, materiality-driven and standardized ESG disclosures. With this in mind, we have prepared this ESG Portal to provide easy-to-navigate links to where Takeda discloses important information related to our ESG policies, practices and data across our various reporting platforms. We also offer downloadable index tables that align our reporting to the Biotechnology & Pharmaceuticals Industry Standards of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and the core metrics for Measuring Stakeholder Capitalism released by the World Economic Forum and its International Business Council (IBC) and the United Nations Global Compact. Optimizing our ESG Reporting is an iterative process. While we do not yet report against every indicator within these reporting frameworks, we will work to continuously enhance our data capture processes and reporting of material ESG information to demonstrate our commitment to transparency and our stakeholders.

The tables below provide links to disclosures and our latest ESG performance indicators under the categories of Patient, People, Planet and Values-Based Governance, to supplement our 2022 Annual Integrated Report. For information on our Purpose-led Sustainability Strategy, including our materiality assessment, recent ESG recognition and our approach to purpose-led sustainability governance, see our Introduction to Purpose led-Sustainability at Takeda.

The information provided includes the operations of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited and consolidated subsidiaries of Takeda. The reporting period of FY21 covers April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022 unless otherwise specified. Selected performance indicators have been assured by Apex Companies, LLC, an independent professional services company and are denoted with a symbol . A copy of our ESG assurance statement can be found here and a copy of our EHS assurance statement here. We will seek to update this ESG Portal on an annual basis to supplement our Annual Reporting.

  • For all other environmental performance indicators, the scope of Takeda operations includes all manufacturing and research & development sites, United States and European plasma collection centers, and larger commercial offices where such data was available. Contributions from smaller commercial office locations are not included.

2 Previously disclosed environmental data revised to reflect acquisitions and divestitures as well as to incorporate any material corrections necessary due to external data verification activities or updated emissions factors

3 Includes renewable electricity purchased through bundled guarantees of origin contracts; excludes unbundled renewable energy purchased through renewable energy certificates.

4 Excludes electricity produced on-site through combined heat and power or fuel cell systems as well as purchased renewable energy certificates.

5 Takeda is committed to mitigating all scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions through the procurement of renewable energy certificates (RECs) and verified emission reductions (VERs). Verification for carbon neutrality covers FY20 data. Procurement of necessary RECs and VERS for FY21 is in progress and will be independently verified when complete.

6 Excludes the energy content of fuel used for commercial fleet vehicles. GHG emissions from commercial fleet vehicles are included in scope 1 emissions. Calculated using the default heat content of the consumed fuels from the "GHG Emission Factors Hub" (U.S. EPA, April 22).

7 Scope 1 emissions are calculated using the GHG emission factors from the "GHG Emission Factors Hub" (U.S. EPA, April 22). Scope 2 location-based emissions from purchased electricity are calculated using the country-specific emission factors published by the IEA and U.S. EPA. Scope 2 market-based emissions from purchased electricity are calculated using the supplier-specific emission factors when available, and country-specific emission factors published by the IEA, AIB, and U.S. EPA when not available. Scope 3 emissions are calculated using activity-based emissions where available with the balance estimated using spend-based methodologies.

8 Total GHG emissions calculated using the scope 2 market-based total.

9 Purchased Verified Emission Reductions sufficient to cover FY20 scope 1 and scope 3 GHG emissions in addition to scope 2 GHG emissions from supplied heating and cooling.

3 Overall water risk rating based on the World Resource Institute Aqueduct 3.0 tool. Overall water risk measures all water-related risks, by aggregating all selected indicators from the Physical Risk Quantity, Physical Risk Quality, and Regulatory, and Reputational Risk categories. Higher values indicate higher water risk.

2 Takeda’s vitality index, defined as the revenue contribution from products commercialized in the last five years, is 4.2% for our FY ending March 2022 (vs 3.5% for the prior year). This includes key contributions from our rare disease and oncology portfolios, such as from Takhzyro for hereditary angioedema and Alunbrig for non-small cell lung cancer. For more information on this metric, please see our WEF Index Table, under "Vitality Index".

3 The scope of this data is U.S. only and includes both enforced and voluntary recalls.

4 Takeda's FY21 target for supplier diversity spend (including small and large businesses) was USD $594 million, which was achieved and surpassed. 

5 The United States of America, the countries of the European Union, and Japan accounted for 87.2% of our revenues in 2021. Conversion of currency and % of revenues has been calculated as per Takeda’s FY2021 Q4 Earnings Announcement (1 USD = 112 JPY, 1 EUR = 131 JPY).  

6 Takeda's FY21 target for number of PSCI sustainability audits conducted was 5, which was achieved.
