Promotion of ISO14001 Certification Acquisition Throughout the Group
We have actively advanced the acquisition of the international ISO14001 certification standard at each Group company as one method to continually evolve by integrating business and environmental activities. With the completion in acquiring the integrated certification and the start of operations at Group companies* in Japan, we are working to enhance management to abide by laws at sites with a low environmental burden and conduct even more efficient environmental management with these sites as targets from 2017. We are in the process of obtaining certifications at overseas Group companies with focus on our production sites. We are approximately 70% complete in certifying overseas Group company production sites as of 2021.
We are enhancing the links between each department involved with the value change of businesses at each Suntory Group company to promote business activities from an environmental perspective in all stages from the procurement of ingredients to disposal.
