* The SBF group is promoting sustainability management in the field containers and packaging with Suntory Group.
We used global trends relating to the SDGs as the basis for an analysis of issues in terms of their importance to our shareholders and other SBF Group stakeholders, and also from the viewpoint of opportunities and risks in the context of our medium- to long-term management strategies. After assessment and verification by third-party organizations, we selected five of the 17 SDGs as goals or highly significant initiatives. They are Goal 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-being), Goal 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), and Goal 13 (Climate Action). We will continue to expand our activities in these areas.
The Suntory Group supports international standards such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and it has signed the United Nations Global Compact, which contains universal principles for human rights, labor, and the environment advocated by the United Nations.
* Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are targets that should be reached globally by 2030 that were adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit held in September 2015.
The SBF Group is working sustainability initiatives with Suntory Group.

As a company that relies on the riches of water and agricultural produce, we strive to conserve biodiversity, the source of their blessings, for the future.
In order to help bring about a recycling-oriented society, we promote the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) of raw materials and energy resources by continuously refining our technologies.
We strive to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases throughout all of our workplaces in order to prevent climate change.

Expressing gratitude toward the Blessings of Nature that are the source of Suntory’s products, the Suntory Group will provide strong leadership for transforming into a recycling-oriented and zero carbon society to bring about a world where diverse animal and plant life shines and resonates. With its diversity in usage and convenience, plastic has made our lives easier.
The plastic containers and packaging we use serve a useful function, but to prevent them from having a negative impact on the global environment, we will promote problem-solving efforts together with various stakeholders. Each employee of Suntory will work on taking responsible action to solve problems and take the initiative in bringing about a sustainable society.
Reduce the amount of plastic used by changing the design of containers and packaging and look for the introduction of alternative containers that do not negatively impact the environment in order to effectively utilize resources.
Actively invest in innovation for materials and processes that improve the recycling rate and minimize environmental impact.
Promote activities that drive change in consumer behavior. Each Suntory employee will work to change their lifestyle, promote sorting and collection, and actively participate in social contribution activities such as cleaning up rivers and beaches.
