Chugai’s Approach to CSR

Chugai will help to build public trust in corporations and contribute to the sustainable development of society by working to create innovative drugs that address unmet medical needs.

Our View of CSR

To realize its mission, Chugai has established a Mission Statement that includes seven Core Values to be shared as individuals and as a company in order to ensure sound business activities as we work toward our Envisioned Future. The Core Values also form the basis of the Chugai Business Conduct Guidelines (Chugai BCG), a code of behavior for management decision-making and employees. The Chugai BCG are reflected in the activities of each business unit and serve as a foundation to support the execution of our new mid-term business plan, IBI 18. We believe that corporate activities consistent with our Mission Statement and the Chugai BCG are the essence of our CSR.

Framework for Promoting Corporate Social Responsibility

The Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, chaired by the Deputy Chairman of the Board, deliberates and makes decisions on tasks, policies, targets and action plans concerning social responsibility for all of Chugai’s business activities. The Corporate Social Responsibility Department is in charge of implementing the committee’s decisions and presiding over daily activities, and works to provide support for CSR activities while assessing their results.

The department manager of each business unit is responsible for spreading and establishing the Chugai BCG in his or her workplace to promote CSR. The manager assigns a BCG promotion assistant, and they work together to resolve issues arising in the promotion of the Chugai BCG, enhancement of human rights and other activities.

The safety and environmental action plans decided by the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee are shared with the general safety and health managers and environmental protection managers at each facility and reflected in the facility’s action plans.

BCG Hotline

The BCG Hotline is available to provide consultation for and receive reports from Chugai employees and other individuals regarding laws, Company rules, the Chugai BCG or related matters. Issues reported are investigated impartially and with strict confidentiality to find a solution while respecting the opinion of the person who made the report. Company rules prohibit retaliation or any other disadvantageous treatment of employees who seek consultation or make reports via the hotline. The BCG Hotline facilitates response to problems or other matters that are difficult to discuss and resolve in the workplace. The goal is to create a positive work environment by enhancing the ability of each workplace to address issues internally. In addition, an external hotline has been set up to handle consultations and reports regarding harassment.
