Growing for Good

Good corporate citizenship and social responsibility are central to our business, and fundamental to our culture. We protect water and the environment, support the communities where our people live and work, and promote responsible consumption of our products.

These efforts help define our character and amplify the passion of our people.

Beam Suntory is committed to preserving and protecting clean water, fertile fields, and healthy forests, precious and shared natural resources that are also integral to our products. Inspired by Suntory’s unwavering leadership in this area, Beam Suntory has initiated programs at its Kentucky distilleries to ensure a sustainable source of limestone water for bourbon distillation and the community, and is engaging employees, neighbors, governmental, and non-governmental organizations to promote watershed sustainability.

Communities

Supporting the communities where our people live and work.

At Beam Suntory, we support the communities where our people live and work. Our community efforts come through our brands, and our company, through disaster relief, and most of all from our people. We encourage all our employees to give back in ways most meaningful to them, with two paid volunteer days each year through our Beam Suntory Cares program. Their passion is a constant inspiration, whether it’s a river cleanup, a clothing drive, or supporting colleagues and partners after a hurricane, our people are always ready to help.

We support evidence-based programs to reduce drunk driving and underage drinking. As a founding member of the organizations including International Alliance for Responsible Drinking, we have worked to reduce alcohol misuse, and partnered to improve digital marketing standards globally.
