Environmental Protection, Safety and Health

The Chugai Group considers environmental protection and occupational health and safety to be key activities that underpin the realization of its mission to benefit the medical community and human health around the world. For a pharmaceutical company, which conducts many specialized scientific activities, environmental protection is closely linked with health and safety, requiring integrated EHS (environment, health and safety) management worldwide. Under these circumstances, the Chugai Group has established an integrated management system for environmental protection, health and safety through research in areas including advanced case studies of companies outside Japan. In addition to introducing this system, we set basic regulations and go through the PDCA cycle at each facility with the aim of achieving sustainable growth.
