Shionogi Group EHS Action Targets (Environment) (2020-2024/2030/2050)

 

To contribute to global sustainability through biodiversity conservation and other initiatives, we work on AMR, climate change, resource conservation and circulation, and water, which are four of the most important environmental challenges, formulating medium- and long-term targets for them.

For items other than these, the Shionogi Group and each business site / Group company set single-year targets and promote activities to achieve the targets.

Scope: Shionogi Group companies in Japan (Global Shionogi Group for 【GHG (CO2) emissions reduction】 and 【Water risk mitigation】)
