Chugai conducts its business activities to fulfill its mission of benefiting the medical community and human health around the world.
In the capital markets in recent years, interest has grown in non-financial information such as environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors as an essential viewpoint for evaluating a company’s long-term sustainable growth potential.
If we view Chugai’s activities in the context of ESG, the “social” aspect is our business activities, “environmental” encompasses activities that support the achievement of our mission, and the continuous improvement of “governance,” which includes aspects such as human resource management, enables medium- to long-term value creation. For Chugai, which is engaged in business related to the important social issue of health, ESG is inextricably linked with the long-term fulfillment of its mission.
In this section, you can search related information from among the three ESG categories of environmental, social and governance.
