Suntory > Corporate Responsibility > Prioritized Initiatives 5 With Business Partners

Prioritized Initiatives 5 We promote CSR throughout our entire supply chain, working with our business partners.

To stably deliver high-quality products and services to customers, it is essential to have good cooperative relationships with business partners.
In addition, social requirements regarding compliance, human rights, and the environment have increased throughout the world. For these reasons, CSR activities are necessary for Group companies as well as supply chains.
Suntory Group also views equitable and fair transactions with business partners extremely important in the realization of sustainable society through business activities, and strives to ensure social responsibility throughout supply chains.
In order to fulfill such responsibility, we established the Suntory Group's Basic Policy on Supply Chain CSR, which includes six core items; legal compliance, human rights and labor standards, quality, environment, information security, and coexisting with society.
We also hold seminars on our policy, questionnaire to monitor status of CSR activities, on-site hearing and other initiatives to strengthen coordination with the business partners.
