The Otsuka group identifies water resources as a CSR Materiality for its environmental initiatives. Along with evaluating water-related issues and how much water is being used at its key production sites around the world, the Otsuka group also encourages regionally appropriate management and efficient water usage with the goal of conserving and improving water resources.
Evaluating Water Risks at Production Sites
The Otsuka group has been conducting water risk assessment and evaluation at its production sites using the water risk evaluation tool “Aqueduct,” developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) since 2017, to understand and reduce the impact on its water-related business activities.
