Specifically, the following ideas shown in Our Principles of the Asahi Group Philosophy are the guidelines for our CSR activities.
Building value together with all our stakeholders
With the establishment of the Asahi Group Philosophy, we have decided to update the contents of the Medium-Term Management Policy, under which we have been working since 2016, aiming for growth into the next stage.
In the Medium-Term Management Policy that was updated in 2019, the reinforcement of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives remains one of the key priorities.
In the aspect of the environment (“E” of ESG), we will set an Environmental Vision 2050 and create value by taking advantage of the Asahi Group's strengths with the aim of improving sustainability. With regard to “S,” we will focus our efforts on building a human rights management system while also promoting glocal talent management and diversity. As initiatives for “G,” we will strengthen risk management and governance reforms that will support our growth. By committing ourselves to these ESG initiatives, we will promote glocal value creation management based on the Asahi Group Philosophy.
We will continue to aim for the sustainable improvement of our corporate value by factoring ESG into our business strategies themselves.
