SHIONOGI Group EHS Action Targets (Environment) (2020–2024/2030/2050)

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

 

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

Scope:

SHIONOGI Group companies in Japan (Global SHIONOGI Group for [GHG (CO2) emissions reduction] and [Water risk mitigation])

Since FY2022, global targets have been set for [Waste and plastics] and [Water consumption reduction].
