Sustainability Strategies

In order to put the Asahi Group Philosophy (AGP) into practice, the Asahi Group has formulated a Medium- to Long-Term Management Policy in 2022, based on backcasting from megatrends. In the Medium- to-Long-Term Management Policy, the concept of our Long-Term Strategy is to “contribute to a sustainable society and respond to changing conceptions of wellbeing through delivering great taste and fun.” One of our core strategies is to integrate sustainability into management, aiming to achieve sustainable growth and build value together with our stakeholders.

In order to achieve the integration of sustainability into management, we have adopted the corporate statement "Make the world shine" and have established "Sustainability Stories" that shows why, how, and what we are doing for sustainability. Based on this concept, the entire Group will work together to promote sustainability and improve engagement with internal and external stakeholders. Further, in addition to establishing objectives as our approach to putting this into practice, we have reorganized our previous initiatives and determined key initiatives on which to focus management resources.

Sustainability Stories

Based on our "Sustainability Stories," we have established an objective as well as material issues and initiatives that identify areas to be addressed as management issues. Among these initiatives, we have set key initiatives on which to focus our management resources, and are moving forward with appropriate and effective measures in response.

Create lasting brand value

For over 100 years, we have worked with the gifts and the power of nature to deliver on our great taste promise to consumers around the world. We are proud that our products have helped encourage people-to-people connections, create communities, and bring more fun to life for everyone - a heritage we aim to continue well into the future.

Adapt to the future

We accept our special responsibility to manage the potentially harmful effects our business may have on the environment and society at large. Going forward, we are committed to achieving sustainable growth while pursuing sustainability as essential synonymous with pursuing business itself.

Actively embrace change

Envisioning a better future, we aim to build sustainable ecosystem and circular economy through decarbonization and the effective use of water resources, connect people to their wonderful communities, and create measures and drinking opportunities to reduce the harmful use of alcohol, sharing ideas and technologies with stakeholders toward realization.

Our promise to the future

We will continue to deliver on our great taste promise and bring more fun to life for everyone by building value together with nature, community, and society at large for making a sustainable, bright future. Our corporate statement “Make the world shine” represents our strong passion for a better tomorrow for people in the world. With this statement, we aim to take proactive actions.
