OSAKA, Japan

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (“Takeda”) (TOKYO:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced that it has been selected for the 15th consecutive year by the FTSE4Good Developed Index, one of the world’s premier indices for Socially Responsible Investment (SRI), created by FTSE Russell.* In addition, Takeda was named to the MSCI ESG Leaders Index for the 10th consecutive year. Both indices target companies demonstrating the strongest environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. Takeda has been highly recognized for strengthening its ESG business practices and information disclosure, particularly regarding its proactive management of environmental issues, as well as its Access to Medicines Strategy, which seeks to help address the unmet needs of patients in underserved communities around the world. Takeda ranked fifth in the 2018 Access to Medicine Index, climbing 10 places in this independent ranking of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies.

On the FTSE4Good Developed Index, Takeda received high marks in the areas of “Climate Change,” “Customer Responsibility,” and “Corporate Governance.” Takeda’s proactive approach to tackling environmental issues on a global scale includes setting clear targets for CO2 emissions reduction and other related benchmarks. Its performance in this ranking also reflect strengthening corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities and information disclosure. With the latest overall score, Takeda now outperforms the pharmaceutical industry average and Japan country average across all themes – environment, social, and governance.

Takeda earned recognition from MSCI ESG Leaders Index for its progress towards tackling issues related to the environmental impact of emissions, access to health care, and anti-corruption. MSCI focuses on companies that have the highest ESG rated performance in each sector to help institutional investors more effectively integrate ESG considerations into their investment processes, as well as manage, measure, and report on ESG mandates.

As a pharmaceutical company dedicated to improving people’s lives, Takeda remains committed to fulfilling its social responsibilities while creating sustainable value in response to global needs.
