Shionogi's Corporate Social Governance Recognized with Double A-list
Shionogi & Company Ltd
Shionogi & Co., Ltd. announced that it has been recognised for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on Climate Change and Water Security by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its annual ‘A List'.
Based on data reported through CDP’s 2022 Climate Change and Water Security questionnaires, Shionogi is one of the 45 companies that achieved a double A list, out of more than 10,000 companies scored.
SHIONOGI Group identified Protect the Environment as a corporately material issue to be addressed and set medium- and long-term action targets (environment) based on SHIONOGI Group Heritage (The Company Policy of SHIONOGI), SHIONOGI Group Code of Conduct, and SHIONOGI Group EHS Policy. In particular, we focus on environmental issues, such as climate change, resource conservation and circulation, including water use, circular economy, and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
We believe that CDP admired our high-level, continuous efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect water resources, reduce the risk of flooding, and appropriately manage wastewater to reduce the release of antimicrobials into the environment as a part of initiatives tackling AMR.
SHIONOGI Group will continue to improve and expand its sustainability activities to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The company will also keep working to make sure that its business growth is in line with its contribution to a sustainable society. We will strive continuously to grow as a company that contributes to all of our stakeholders.
