Our CSV Commitment

Under the New KV2021 long-term management vision, we have positioned CSV as the core of our management in order to grow continuously with society. We have also established “health and well-being,*1” “community engagement,” and “the environment” as key social issues on which we will focus, in addition to being “a responsible alcohol producer,” given the fact that we are a corporate group that deals with alcoholic beverages. For these social issues, we have referenced the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)*2 and decided on 16 commitments that will help clarify the kind of company we aim to be through our business over the medium to long term. In addition, we have formulated specific approaches to reach desired outcomes for fulfilling these commitments. By making Groupwide efforts toward these commitments, we aim to contribute to a happy and prosperous future for our customers.

*1
As we provide health value to our customers through many of our beverages, we have placed “safety and the security of our products” as an issue we will tackle under our “health and well-being” initiative.
*2
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) pertain to issues that international society should address over the next 15 years between 2016 and 2030 in order to realize sustainable global development. The SDGs were adopted at the United Nations summit in September 2015.
