Recognized as One of the Highest-Ranking Companies on the Supplier Engagement Rating (Climate Change) by CDP for the Fourth Consecutive Year

OSAKA, Japan, March 7, 2024 - Shionogi & Co., Ltd.  (Head Office: Osaka, Japan; Chief Executive Officer: Isao Teshirogi, Ph.D.) is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as one of the highest-ranking companies on the Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) (Climate Change) by CDP1, a global non-profit organization working on environmental information disclosure. We have been selected as a Supplier Engagement Leader for the fourth consecutive year. It received high marks on the heels of being ranked as A for Climate Change and for Water security in February 20242.


SER evaluates companies in four categories related to Climate Change: 1) governance, 2) targets, 3) Scope 3 emissions, and 4) supplier engagement. In 2023, over 450 companies in the world, including approximately 110 Japanese companies, have been recognized on the Supplier Engagement Leader as companies proactively working with their suppliers to ensure climate change action cascades down their supply chains.


The SHIONOGI Group has identified Protect the Environment as a material issue, based on the SHIONOGI Group Heritage (The Company Policy of SHIONOGI), and SHIONOGI Group Code of Conduct. We have set ambitious medium- and long-term environmental targets, guided by the SHIONOGI Group EHS3 Policy and the SHIONOGI Group EHS Code of Conduct. Moreover, we engage with our business partners and require them to adhere to SHIONOGI Group Business Partner Code of Conduct. We believe these continual efforts were recognized by CDP.


The SHIONOGI Group remains dedicated to advancing and expanding sustainability initiatives in line with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We will continue to ensure that our corporate growth aligns with our contribution to creating a sustainable society through our business practices. We are aiming to evolve into a company that brings value to all our stakeholders, as we persistently strive for growth and progress.
