Otsuka Group Global Environmental Council
As a group of global companies that contribute to the health of people worldwide, the Otsuka group works sincerely to reduce the impact we have on the global environment through our businesses, and hopes to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society that can protect the nature and the future of the earth.
The Otsuka Group Global Environmental Council—comprising a director of Otsuka Holdings, executive officers from each group company, and a secretariat—formulated the Otsuka Group Environmental Policy and Guidelines and advances initiatives on environmental management through collaboration between Otsuka group companies.
The Otsuka group has identified climate change, resource circulation, and water conservation as the CSR Materiality in its environmental initiatives. We have kicked off deliberations on the formulation of a long-term environmental vision that is consistent with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, information disclosure under global standards, and the setting of medium-term environmental targets with specific action plans slated for launch in 2019.
Looking ahead, we will strengthen and practice environmental management that meets our social responsibilities and the demands of a global society by deepening the understanding and recognition of environmental problems through environmental education for employees and by further enhancing collaboration between our group companies.
