Suntory Holdings Recognized by the CDP as Supplier Engagement Leader 2023

Tokyo, Japan (March 6, 2024) — Suntory Holdings has been recognized by global environmental non-profit CDP as a 2023 Supplier Engagement Leader. This marks the fourth consecutive recognition of the Suntory Group. This year, Suntory Group also secured a place in the CDP Climate Change A-list for five consecutive years and the Water Security A-list for eight consecutive years.

CDP’s Supplier Engagement Leaderboard recognizes the companies which have received the highest ratings in CDP’s Supplier Engagement Rating (SER). CDP’s annual SER is designed to evaluate and spur action on corporate supply chain engagement on climate issues, based on the CDP climate change questionnaire. It covers governance, targets, value chain (scope 3) emissions and value chain engagement strategies, and factors in the company’s climate score.

To achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the entire value chain by 2050, Suntory Group has set a goal to halve GHG emissions in its direct operations and reduce by 30% across the entire value chain by 2030*. The company was recognized by the CDP for its close collaboration with value chain stakeholders in tackling climate change, by gathering information on the status of their GHG emissions level and reducing their emissions.
