Suntory is a multinational brewer and distiller, operating a group of 300 companies across Europe, Japan, Asia and the Americas. Founded in 1899, Suntory is one of the oldest brewing companies in Japan, as well as having diversified into consumer food products and integrated services over time. Today, 57% of revenue comes from food and beverages and 33% from alcoholic beverages. Despite its multinational presence, 58% of company revenue is still earned in its home market, Japan.
Suntory ranks 58th among its segment peers in the food and beverage processors/manufacturers segment, indicating that while it is not a laggard, it still has opportunity to improve in many areas. The company performs similarly to its peers in the governance and strategy and environment measurement areas. Like others in the beverage sector, it discloses its stakeholder engagement efforts and sustainable development strategy. It is also advanced in its efforts to reduce water withdrawals across its operations, an area that many others in the beverage sector consider a priority. Where the company lags most significantly behind its peers is in the social inclusion measurement area. While it publicly commits to respecting certain human rights, it has a long way to go in terms of protecting its workers and those in its supply chain.
