Corporate Social Responsibility

Santen's Values - "Tenki ni sanyo suru" - embody what the Company has continued to recognize as important over 120 years since its foundation in 1890. Our mission is to benefit patients and their loved ones, and thereby contribute to society, by always pursuing creation and innovation.


To ensure that all business activities are consistent with our company values and mission, we have established "Organizational Principles" to articulate the ideal state of our organization and "Individual Action Principles" to guide how employees should act and behave. To provide more specific action guidelines, we also formulated "The Santen Code of Practice", which comprises "Declaration of Corporate Behavior" and "Code of Conduct". Focusing on the three pillars of "customer trust", "employee responsibility and growth" and "harmony with society", Santen Code of Practice requires employees not only to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, but also to observe the highest standards of ethics and integrity in their conduct. We work on a continuous basis to disseminate and promote adherence to the "Santen Code of Practice" throughout the Group.


We believe that by conducting business activities and CSR activities in an integrated and continuous manner, we can contribute to a sustainable society and environment, leading to the realization of our long-term management vision.​​
