Coexisting with Communities around Our Plants

The Suntory Group’s main plants are making efforts to engage in dialogue with local residents. We also work to provide venues for interacting with the local community through measures such as opening parks and trails created at our plants. We have third parties conduct environmental impact assessments when we construct new plants and work to get the understanding of the people who neighbor the site. We also make efforts to harmonize the plants with nature by preserving the sites’ biodiversity and pursuing greening initiatives on their grounds.

Promoting Greening of Plants

Suntory Group’s plants consider biodiversity and promote greening that is in harmony with local environment, receiving awards in various locations as model green plants.
