The development of IoT, AI, and other digital technologies and biotechnologies, as well as economic and geopolitical changes, drastic changes in demographics, such as decreasing birthrate and aging population in developed countries and increasing population in emerging countries, and changes in the global environment are occurring at an unprecedented speed. To proactively respond to the demands and expectations of such a continuously changing diverse society, Daiichi Sankyo Group believes having dialogues with various stakeholders to understand each other is crucial to the sustainability of corporate activities.
The Daiichi Sankyo Group Corporate Conduct Charter declares “We maintain productive, positive and professional relationships with our stakeholders” in Article 2, and “We actively, effectively, and fairly disclose corporate information to the public and engage in an open and constructive dialogue with a wide range of stakeholders” in Article 3.
We believe that the sustainable growth of a company in society and the medium-to-long-term growth of corporate value are made possible through communication with various stakeholders and society including patients, their families, healthcare professionals, shareholders, investors, employees, business partners, and local communities (see the diagram below).

After communicating with these various stakeholders to learn about their demands and expectations for us, we organize the Group’s initiatives and then work on them in order of priority. By obtaining the trust of stakeholders through activities that ensure the stakeholders understand the Group’s initiatives and thoughts, we cooperate in the realization of a sustainable society.
