Achieving 5 SDGs via Core Business
Since its founding in 1948, HAMARI has been consistent and unique in its management philosophy of developing new and novel excellent manufacturing method, of advancing in quality management, of inventing beneficial substances under the pursuit of unrivaled services. Therefore, SDG 9 “Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure” is the nexus of our SDGs approach that aims at promoting innovation in research and development, and production activities that are envionronmentally and resource-friendly.
SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
★ We are contributing to the promotion of innovation and drug search and development through industry-government-academia through our contracted drug discovery researh activities.
Drug Discovery Program
★ We are working on environmentally friendly process development to improve energy efficiency through research and development activities of our own products and those that were contracted to us. Examples of process improvements include shortening of synthetic route, avoidance of high temperature and high pressure reactions, improvement of production yield, and improvement of purity in the crude product.
Manufacture of amino acids and peptides
Asymmetric transfer hydrogenation
★ We are working on the continuous production by flow synthesis that would lead to the reliation of sustainable manufaacturing processes that are environmentally friendly outcomes such as energy conservation and low environmental load.
★ We envision medium molecular-size drugs, which would solve several problems with small molecular-size drugs and high molecular-size drugs (biopharmaceuticals), as a growing field that we are nurturing in our development of unique peptide synthesis technology.

SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being
★ We continue to develop and establish quality policies and to contribute to society as member of the global pharmaceutical community. In addition, we have established a quality assurance system based on the HAMARI Group Quality Manual (HQM) in order to deliver better products and services to our customers.
Quality Policy and Advanced Quality Assurance System
★ Our slogan is to aspire to bring happiness to everyone in the world with our leading edge technology and services for the planet, happiness and good health of everyone in the world, and thus, we strive to reduce and prevent polution to the air, water and soil by developing countermeasures.
SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
★ We envision medium molecular-size drugs with high added values, such as a peptide drugs, as a growing field, and are working together with our business partners to create innovations.

★ Our mission is to ever evolve and to strive to build a bright future with enthusiastic employees. Hence, wil will promote the expansion and creation of employment through systematic non-prejudicial recruitment activities, and human resources through various skill development programs and training systems.
★ We are continuously improving safety and employee health standards with the aims of preventing and elminating occupational accidents by actively promoting safety and health management, and creating a comfortable working environment.
SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
★ To perform global environmental protection under our EHS policies, we promote the reduction of environmental load and effective use of limited resources such as energy, resoure and water conservations, by routinely setting and reviewing environmental milestones. We endeavor to actively engage all employees in this environmental pursuit.
SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
★ We strive to build true collaborative relationships by communicating with business partners such as raw material suppliers and subcontractors. We also conduct multifaceted surveys and evaluations of business partners, as well as regular visits and guidances. Furthemore, we are actively promoting purchases from mutiple sources to build a system that ensures a stable purchase of raw materials, so as to minimize changes in manufacture schedules that could lead to delivery delays.
★ To perform global environmental protection under our EHS policies, we promote the reduction of environmental load such as reduction of waste, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, by routinely setting and reviewing environmental milestones. We endeavor to actively engage all employees in this environmental pursuit.
