Promotion of Culture and Arts
Daiichi Sankyo Group works closely with local communities around the world to encourage the development of culture, art and sport.
Contributions to Promoting Sports
Daiichi Sankyo employee Junya Koga represented Japan in the men’s 400 m freestyle swimming event at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Koga was employed by the Company in 2011 through the scheme for finding work for leading athletes operated by the Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) with the aim of supporting Japanese athletes looking to become the best in the world. Moreover, Koga was the first athlete to conclude an official employment agreement with a company through the JOC’s scheme.
The motivation, passion, and ambition that fuels Koga’s constant drive to be No. 1 in world in his sport matches the vision and spirit of the Daiichi Sankyo Group in its pursuit of becoming a Global Pharma Innovator. Koga thus has our full support in his athletic endeavors.
