Organizational Governance Risk Management
Risk Management Associated with Business Activities
We have established Risk Management Rules that stipulate basic matters related to risk management and Risk Management Structure to prevent the occurrence of risks in the business activities of the entire Group including overseas group companies and to minimize losses in the event that such risks occur.
Furthermore, in order to promote effective risk management, we classify and manage risks according to their characteristics. These are "management strategy risks," which are inherent in management decision-making, "significant risks," which require cross-organizational management because they affect the entire Group, and "general risks," which each department has the responsibility to address.
The Risk Management Committee, chaired by the President and CEO, has been established to oversee and promote risk management across the Group, and it deliberates on and decides risk management policies, and also monitors the risk management status and makes improvements as necessary.
As a specific measure to promote risk management, we implement risk assessment every year and feedback the results to each division to improve our risk management and risk sensitivity.
The Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Group has conducted a review of a its Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and systems to ensure the continued stable supply of pharmaceuticals to patients in case of a major earthquake such as a Nankai Trough earthquake and a Tokyo inland earthquake predicted to strike in the future.
We are strengthening the Business Continuity Process with business continuity drills, safety confirmation drills, and communication drills with Push-to-Talk over Cellular.
Furthermore, we will carry this out to achieve the overarching mission of "the stable supply of pharmaceutical products to patients" by preparing manuals to address specific risks, such as tsunamis, pandemics, terrorism, and conflicts, to our domestic and overseas bases.
To ensure the stable use of information and information communication technologies in response to overseas business expansion and the increasing complexity of IT infrastructure. We are taking a number of steps, such as establishing rules at overseas bases, strengthening network security, enhancing security when using cloud services, and developing a crisis management system in the event of a security incident.
