Eisai received high scores in categories such as Innovation Management, Climate Strategy, Environmental Reporting as well as Human Rights.

In addition to the DJSI Asia Pacific, Eisai has been selected for the FTSE4Good Index Series, which is another global benchmark SRI index as well as for the MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN), the FTSE Blossom Japan Index, the MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index and S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient Index, which are the four ESG investment indices for Japanese stocks adopted by the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF).

Eisai?s corporate philosophy is to give first thought to patients and their families, and increase the benefits that health care provides as well as address diverse healthcare needs worldwide. By strengthening its ESG initiatives and increasing non-financial value, Eisai is striving to sustainably enhance corporate value based on this corporate philosophy.
