Communication with ESG Rating Agencies

We actively communicate with agencies addressing socially responsible investment (SRI) and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indices, such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices and FTSE4Good, as well as organizations related to the United Nations Global Compact and other stakeholders. We thereby seek to develop an understanding of social issues and expectations of the Company.
For example, when representatives from the Access to Medicine Foundation visited Japan in January 2016, we arranged a meeting with Daiichi Sankyo President Nakayama. The Access to Medicine Foundation is a global non-profit organization (NPO) based in the Netherlands. This organization ranks efforts to improve global access to medicine of 20 research-based major global pharmaceutical companies. During the meeting, we explained our initiatives on this front and shared information on issues regarding access to medicine faced around the world.
