About Suntory Group's Compliance to ISO26000

Suntory Group views ISO26000, an international standard for social responsibility, as a common index for globally promoting sustainability. In 2012, divisions relevant to core subjects of ISO26000 gathered to discuss priority issues that Suntory Group should place priority on.
