Message from Vice President of the Sustainability Promotion Department: Aiming to be a trusted company by sincere business activities and comprehensive information disclosure
Daiichi Sankyo is selected for inclusion in the above representative ESG investment indices.

Also in Japan, the revision of the Corporate Governance Code requires companies to significant changes towards sustainable growth.
Sincere corporate activities, comprehensive information disclosure and proactive communication with stakeholders are getting more important.
