Enabling Each and Every Individual to be Free to “shine AS YOU ARE”

Establishing the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement

The Asahi Group established the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Statement in 2021. The Global DE&I Statement is a benchmark to enable each and every Asahi Group employee to be free to shine as themselves. We have positioned it as a key initiative that affects the future of the entire Group. In addition to setting numerical targets, we have established a structure for promoting DE&I, reviewed systems and frameworks, and are implementing initiatives to foster talent development and the corporate culture.
