Basic Policy 1 in "Beyond Imagination 2030," our long-term management plan, is "Develop and activate self-sufficient personnel who are capable of acting independently, and who respond to diversifying organizations and societies". We endeavor to develop self-sufficient personnel who set their own goals and have high aspirations to achieve them by maintaining a good balance in work motivation, healthy workplace environment, and fair evaluations and compensation.
In addition, the Sustainability Promotion Committee deliberates and decides on the identification of important matters related to human capital and disclosure policies, and a system has been established to receive recommendations from the Board of Directors on important matters.

Initiatives to Improve Access to Health Care

Demand for pharmaceuticals is rapidly increasing in developing countries due to population growth and economic development. However, access to medical services and medicines still needs to be secured due to inadequate infrastructure, medical environment, and financial reasons. In light of this situation, Taiyo Holdings group is investing in healthcare-related fields* in Africa to build a network with local companies with which we can expect synergies in the future while aiming to solve social issues and realize sustainable businesses. In addition, we are cooperating with the "Vaccines for the World's Children Support Program" of the Japan Committee, Vaccines for the World's Children, (JCV), a certified Non-Profit Organization (NPO).

Establishment of "T-Links," a Welfare Facility That Serves the Community as a Temporary (Evacuation) Shelter

In November 2022, T-LINKS, a welfare facility, opened on the premises of Taiyo Pharma Tech in Takatsuki City, Osaka Prefecture. Although the facility is primarily for the use of employees, it is a new welfare facility that connects the company and the local community, serving as a temporary shelter in the event of a disaster for those who remain in Takatsuki City and are unable to return home, as well as for nearby residents. Taiyo Holdings Group will continue to utilize the welfare facility "T-LINKS" to create a comfortable working environment for employees and to harmonize with the local community and society.
