Takeda is committed to fostering and maintaining relationships with small, minority, or women-owned businesses globally. Supplier Diversity is integrated into our overall Global Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DE&I) Strategy.
Partnering with a diverse range of suppliers provides overall value within our procurement process. It also contributes to our mission by giving Takeda access to new and innovative products and services while optimizing price, quality, and availability.
By creating economic opportunities for underrepresented communities through procurement of products and services from diverse suppliers, we can impact the societies where we live and work. This ultimately impacts social determinants of health, leading to health equity.
Our supplier diversity program is administered by Takeda's Supplier Environmental, Social, and Governance Group. It is embedded into our Global Procurement Policy and our operations.
