Value for Society, by Takeda Belgium
The full team participated in an activity dedicated to creating furniture from recycled wooden pallets. The furniture was pre-ordered by associations, enabling all of us to contribute directly to better living conditions for the beneficiaries of these associations. This was a good way for Takeda to bring value to society while also contributing to a circular economy.
Relay for Life & 1000 km for Kom op Tegen Kanker
Innovation goes beyond the pill and this mindset has been translated by many of our colleagues, for instance by participating several times in “Relay for Life” with over 30 Takeda employees, running for 24 consecutive hours in support of cancer research.
In 2019, 16 very courageous Takeda athletes accepted the challenge of cycling 1000 km for Kom op Tegen Kanker (Rise Against Cancer). In the lead-up to the event, several initiatives were launched by other colleagues to raise money for Kom op Tegen Kanker. Waffles, Easter eggs, Valentine’s Day flowers, handmade candles... the sale of all these items contributed to the fund-raising in support of Kom op Tegen Kanker.
