Message from the Deputy Chairman of the Board
Chugai's mission is to dedicate itself to adding exceptional value through the creation of innovative medical products and services for the benefit of the medical community and human health around the world.
At the Chugai Group, we believe our social responsibility is to conduct our business operations in line with this mission and to follow the Chugai Business Conduct Guidelines (Chugai BCG), a code of behavior for employees.
The external environment of the pharmaceutical industry is changing by the minute, and we too must continue to evolve and deliver higher value to society in order to fulfill our responsibilities and grow into a company that has the trust and support of all its stakeholders.
At the Chugai Group, we see corporate value as something determined through an overall assessment of "Economic Performance", "Social Awareness", and "Human Development". We believe that it is important to pursue and then achieve each of these simultaneously, merging them into a consistent whole. As we continue to create value and to innovate, we will also focus resources on enhancing the management foundation that forms the core of these efforts, qualitatively improving corporate value to further solidify our trust relationship with our stakeholders.
To accomplish this, we have applied our proprietary research technologies to create a succession of drug discovery projects, and are working to quickly deliver innovative medicines to the world. Moreover, in promoting diversity management, a key factor that drives innovation, we are taking various measures to link diversity of gender, nationality and age to value-creation.
One area in which we are evolving qualitatively in order to gain the support of our stakeholders is in our backing for para-sports. We support the Japanese Para-Sports Association as an official sponsor, cooperating with the Association’s activities aimed at achieving their vision of creating a vibrant, inclusive society. Specifically, we have worked to convey to a larger audience the appeal of these sports through educational pamphlets, and by sponsoring athlete panel discussions, photo exhibits and hands-on events. These activities are also meaningful in that they raise awareness of diversity among Chugai Group employees. The Chugai Group will continue this proactive support as part of our contribution to achieving the philosophy behind para-sports: The creation of a vibrant, inclusive society.
We look forward to your continued understanding and support of the Chugai Group.
