The Asahi Group was the third Japanese company to express support for The United Nations Global Compact in June 2002.
The Global Compact was proposed by the then Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan on January 31st, 1999 at the World Economic Forum, and he requested individual corporations to support and practice the ten principles in the four areas pertaining to human rights, labor standards, the environment, and corruption prevention within their scope of influence. Its aim is to bring about a proactive change to the world by complying with and practicing these rules as individual corporations execute their business.
As a member of the Global Compact Network Japan, the Asahi Group participates in subcommittees on SDGs, ESG issues, CSV, WEPs, Human Rights Education, and Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD), and is working together with other leading Japanese companies to realize the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact.
