OSAKA, Japan, February 15, 2022 - Shionogi & Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Osaka, Japan; President and CEO: Isao Teshirogi, Ph.D.; hereafter "Shionogi" ) has announced Shionogi was recognized as one of the highest-ranking companies on the “Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) Leaderboard (Climate Change)” by CDP※1, a global non-profit organization working on environmental information disclosure. This is the second year in a row for the company to be on the “Leaderboard”. The company also disclosed that it had been ranked as A- for “Climate Change” and for “Water security” in December 2021.
SER evaluates companies in 4 categories (governance, targets, scope 3 emissions and supplier engagement) related to Climate Change. In 2021, about 500 companies in the world, including 105 Japanese companies, were recognized on the “Leaderboard” as companies implementing strategies and taking actions to reduce GHG emissions and manage climate risk in their supply chains.
Shionogi has identified "Protect the Environment" as one of our key focus point to be addressed. Based on "The Company Policy of Shionogi", "Shionogi Group Code of Conduct" and "Shionogi Group EHS※2 Policy", we have set mid-to-long term environmental action targets, and are taking the appropriate environmental initiatives in our business activities. Moreover, we engage with our business partners and require them to adhere to the "Shionogi Group Business Partner Code of Conduct". We believe these continual efforts were recognized by CDP.
