Companies (about 400 companies in the world, about 80 companies in Japan) were selected to the“Leaderboard” as companies implementing strategies and taking actions to reduce GHG emissions and manage climate risk in their supply chains.
Shionogi identified "Protect the Environment" as a corporately material issue to be addressed and set mid-to-long term environmental action targets based on the "Shionogi Group EHS※2 Policy".
We take the environmental initiatives not only in our business activities such as pharmaceuticals, clinical-laboratory drugs/instruments research, development, manufactuaring and sales, but also in the cooperation with business partners in the supply chain. We believe that CDP adimired these high level continuous efforts.
