Takeda: Making World Environment Day personal
Takeda, the global pharmaceuticals company, puts environmental sustainability at the heart of its business operations, with a pledge to be carbon neutral across their value chain by 2040. As part of this commitment to environmental sustainability, it sought support from us in ensuring their employees understand what they can do personally, both at home and work, to protect the planet.
Working closely with Takeda’s sustainability colleagues we developed a suite of tools and activities to celebrate World Environment Day. The chosen theme was ‘Only One Earth’ encouraging people to rethink their way of living to protect the planet.
The tools were designed to engage employees in the workplace and at home, including activities for families and friends to get involved in.
A series of posters, myth busters and plasmas encouraged employees to think about how they could put the five ‘R’s into action – Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Repurpose and Recycle – and interactive quizzes and games got them thinking creatively about how they could make small changes to their way of living to have a big impact on the planet.
The tools were translated into multiple languages to be used by Takeda employees around the world to celebrate World Environment Day.
