Care for Environment, Health and Safety
At Shionogi, we have built up a company-wide management system based on the Shionogi Group EHS Policy, whose EHS activities embrace not only the Group but also its supplier partners.
Appropriately managing chemical substances
We use a wide range of chemical substances in pharmaceutical research development, and manufacturing. Included among these are chemical substances with potential impacts on human health, ecosystems, and the global environment. For the sake of compliance, we believe that it is important not only to strictly observe PRTR legislation and the wide range of other regulations relating to chemical substances, but also to appropriately manage chemical substances and observe voluntary standards more stringent than legally mandated values in order to limit emissions into the air, wastewater, water and soil.
Protecting water resources
Shionogi is working to protect water resources by using them more effectively and managing wastewater quality. In addition to our efforts to conserve water, we set voluntary standards for wastewater quality that exceed mandated levels and carry out constant monitoring.
Safety management of biological samples
We strive to ensure safe and proper handling, ensure the safety of handlers, and prevent the spread of samples in accordance with the relevant laws.
We provide necessary training to all researchers, such as browsing videos and distributing book about research ethics s every year after joining the company.
Recycling of resources and green purchasing
The garbage generated in the office is separated finely and the recycling is promoted. In addition, we regularly conduct garbage separation education in online education.
