Shionogi & Co., Ltd., announced that it has been continuously selected for inclusion in all ESG indices for Japanese equities adopted by the Government Pension Investment Fund.

Shionogi has been consistently chosen as a constituent in five ESG indices adopted by GPIF: the FTSE Blossom Japan Index, the FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index ( launched on March 30, 2022), the MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index, the MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN), and the S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient Index. As a result, Shionogi has been included in all of GPIF's ESG indices for the third year in a row.

Shionogi has also been named a constituent of the FTSE4 Good Index Series and the MSCI ESG Leaders Indexes for the third consecutive year, both of which are global key ESG indices. As a result, Shionogi's sustainability has been well recognised in terms of environmental, social, and governance practices.

The indices listed above are used by a wide range of market participants to establish and assess responsible investment funds and other products and are widely regarded as essential criteria by global investors who focus on each company's ESG efforts.

Shionogi vows to advance and develop its sustainability efforts to achieve the SDGs and will work tirelessly to ensure that "corporate growth" is matched with "contribution to a sustainable society" through its business.
