Environmental Vision

Environmental Management Vision

The Eisai Group not only delivers pharmaceutical products to patients and people in the daily living domain, but also provides solutions tailored to their diverse needs. In doing so, our goal is to achieve two social goods: relieving anxiety over health and reducing health disparities. We consider the global environment to be the foundation of our business activities for the realization of social good. Therefore, we recognize that environmental protection is extremely important to our Group, which aims to relieve anxiety over health.
In 2021, the Eisai Group updated the Eisai Network (ENW) Environmental Protection Policy, and under this policy, we are standardizing Group-wide efforts and committed to protecting the environment. In April 2022, the Eisai Group formulated the Eisai Environmental Management Vision, with the mid-term goal of systematically addressing and promoting issues such as climate change, sustainable water use, recycling of resources, biodiversity conservation, and proper management of chemical substances. Through this, we aim to efficiently realize the social goods that the Eisai Group aims to achieve.

ENW Environmental Protection Policy

The ENW Environmental Protection Policy is based on the ENW Charter of Business Conduct and states the basic philosophy underlying environmental protection activities at ENW companies, along with a set of nine concrete environmental protection guidelines. The Japan ENW companies are constantly striving to promote environmental protection activities based on this policy. This policy was revised through the approval of the Executive Committee in April 2021 and published thereafter.
