Reduction of Water Use and Wastewater Management

Reduction in Water Use

Our Basic Policy on Water Resources Preservation

The Asahi Group uses many gifts of nature in its business activities. Water, one of these natural resources, is widely used in our business, particularly for cultivation of crops and cleaning of production equipment. Water is an essential production resource without which our business cannot operate. The Asahi Group is committed to efficient water usage at all sites, as well as to strategies for reducing the environmental burden associated with our water intake and wastewater output.
Furthermore, this is not only limited to within the Asahi Group, but it is also actively working toward the conservation of sustainable water resources through its business activities, such as water resource management across the entire supply chain.
