Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma's CSR

The Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Group's corporate philosophy of “contributing to the healthier lives of people around the world through the creation of pharmaceuticals” reflects universal values, and the realization of that philosophy is our social mission. The topic of corporate social responsibility is a focus of attention, and in this setting the Company needs to maintain an appropriate understanding of the changing state of affairs in society and to actively contribute to the resolution of social issues. To that end, we need to conduct our business activities with fairness and integrity, and we have to maintain the trust of society. Moreover, as people engaged in the activities of a pharmaceutical company, all of our officers and employees must have a strong sense of mission and a high level of ethical standards. Targeting the realization of a sustainable society in which patients and other people around the world can enjoy good health and better lifestyles, the Group is working energetically to implement CSR activities.
