this is using subjunctive mood. The correct structure would be either:
"require that companies take...." or "require companies to take...".

Since original sentence already has noun "companies" after "require", we don't have any other option except to select the structure "require companies to take...".

Hence D

Correct idiom require X to Y
....require companies (X) to take more responsibility (Y)..........

Some verbs are in subjenctive mood such as ; propose , request , require , recomment , suggest, insist , intend , plead ..... Subjenctive mood must be formed with the base form of the verb . In this sentence to take is the base form of the verb.
