Our Commitment to Human Rights and the Environment

Our Commitment to Human Rights and the Environment (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz)

At DSE, we are fully committed to respect human rights and environmental standards while ensuring sustainable access to healthcare. Our adherence to the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (SCDDA) underscores our dedication to upholding human rights and environmental protection principles within our business area and in our supply chains. We contribute to upholding these fundamental rights by assigning distinct responsibilities and implementing various measures to ensure compliance.

Ensuring  Adherence to Human Rights and Environmental Standards – Our Commitment 

  • We actively uphold the principles of human rights and environmental protection as outlined in the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG).
  • We collaborate globally with contract partners and suppliers to achieve sustainability goals in line with the UN Global Compact principles.
  • We conduct comprehensive risk analysis to continually progress in our due diligence for human rights and environmental considerations within our own business areas and our supply chain.
  • We expect strict compliance with human rights and environmental protection from our employees and third parties, and we encourage reporting of any concerns in this regard via our complaint mechanisms. 
  • We commit to transparent reporting, including compliance with reporting obligations under the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act. We publicly share annual reports on our efforts, progress, and challenges in implementing measures for the further protection of human rights and the environment.

Safeguarding Human Rights and Environmental Integrity – Our Governance Approach

Governance at Daiichi Sankyo Europe GmbH (DSE) is structured to uphold sustainability and human rights principles. As of January 1st, 2024, DSE has implemented the principles and procedures of the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, marking a significant stride towards responsible corporate management and global human rights protection. Masahiro Kato, our Managing Director, and Martin Fürle, appointed as our Human Rights Officer, have both issued explicit statements affirming our commitment to this law.

"The Supply Chain Due Diligence Act is a challenge that we, as a company, willingly embrace. We acknowledge the urgency and necessity to protect and improve working conditions and human rights throughout our entire supply chain. It is not only a legal obligation but also a moral responsibility that we bear as a company. Through transparent reporting and active measures, we will ensure that our suppliers adhere to ethical standards. This law not only promotes responsibility but also fosters trust between companies and consumers."

"As the Human Rights Officer, I embrace the significance of the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act in advancing the protection of human rights within global supply chains.
This ground-breaking legislation sets forth explicit guidelines and standards, ensuring companies fulfil their obligations to individuals employed within their supply chain. My role entails not only ensuring the law's implementation on paper but also fostering tangible, positive transformations. We will collaborate closely with companies to embed dignified working conditions, environmental protection, and social responsibility into their corporate practices. Additionally, I am committed to ensuring compliance with upcoming regulations such as the Corporate Sustainability and Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) alongside existing standards.
