The Suntory Group is continually growing as a corporate group that is globally expanding its wide range of businesses having alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage business at its core. The driving force of our growth is the "Yatte Minahare" spirit, which has been passed down since our founding. This spirit represents our will to actively challenge what others will not take, and contribute to enriching the lifestyle of people by creating products and services that have new and unprecedented values.
In terms of quality, we commit to bring the highest level of quality on a global scale. To realize customers first, we strive not only for the safety and reliability, but also for the better taste, aroma, and ease in using our containers for all of our products until the final consumption. Furthermore, we will create new values, including the development of even higher quality products utilizing technical exchanges and synergies across the bord, business area and each group company.
In order to realize the truly global corporate group SUNTORY, we believe that it is indispensable to pass down the sustainable society to the next generation through our unique contribution under another founding spirit "Giving back to society." Under this spirit, we will especially address the issues of "water," since water is the core of our business, and also a valuable resource supporting people's lives. Last year, we have formulated the group-wide "Sustainable Water Philosophy"; based on this philosophy, we are strongly committing to contribute solving water relevant issues in various parts of the world where we operate, by globally and continually promoting our water sustainability based activities done in Japan.
"To create harmony with people and nature" is outlined in our corporate philosophy. We contribute to the lifestyles of people by delivering the highest quality products and services to customers around the world. At the same time, we will never waver from the mission of the Suntory Group to create harmony with the society and beautiful natural environment. We also know that the employees who have come together under the Suntory Group are the people who are giving the shape to this philosophy. In an environment where "Yatte Minahare" spirit can be put into practice, we will always strive for further innovation, and take challenges toward the goal to become a "Growing for Good" company that realizes a sustainable and vibrant society.
