Water Sustainability

Sustainable Water Philosophy

Our craftsmanship is only possible through nature’s gifts. It is our duty to nurture and protect water as an invaluable natural resource. Everything we create is grounded in respect and appreciation for water and we are committed to our efforts to keep water in its purest and most abundant form for future generations.

Sustainable Water Philosophy Overview

Establishing Our Sustainable Water Philosophy

The Suntory Group Sustainable Water Philosophy was established to address relevant water issues in each of our regions of operation. As we grow internationally, we are expanding our work on water sustainability across the globe.

Suntory Group’s Sustainable Water Philosophy (Established 2017)

Water is the most important ingredient of our products, as well as a precious shared resource. In order to achieve "water sustainability", the first pillar of Suntory Group's Environmental Policy, we want to share these values with all Suntory Group members and apply them where we operate in order to answer to our stakeholders' expectations.
