Sustainable Procurement | Takeda Pharmaceuticals

Sustainable Procurement

Sustainable Procurement achieves value for money spent while generating benefits to society, the economy, and reducing environmental impact and other governance and compliance risks. Supplier Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) ensures that our suppliers conduct business in the same manner we do – with a focus on social, environmental, and economic good. It is a key element of our supply chain management process. As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, we take our commitment to assess and improve its supply chain in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption very seriously.

Our approach

Rooted in Takeda-ism, Supplier ESG aligns our suppliers in over 70 countries with our ESG practices. It helps maintain our pledge to act with integrity, fairness, honesty and perseverance.

The Supplier ESG process continually balances risk and opportunity in our engagement with suppliers:

  • Risk – Avoiding practices that harm people or the environment, could hurt our reputation, or represent significant business or supply risk

  • Opportunity – Aligning suppliers with our ESG practices, and influencing them to decarbonize, reduce waste, and invest in innovative solutions
