Alcoholic beverages bring joy and pleasurable times to many people’s lives. For some people, however, drinking alcohol can be problematic for health-related or other reasons. The Kirin Group recognizes that it has a responsibility as an alcoholic beverage producer to help eliminate any harmful consumption of alcoholic products. Accordingly, the Group works together with communities and organizations around the world to eradicate and prevent alcohol-related problems. For example, the Group carries out educational programs on responsible drinking and proper drinking etiquette, sets and complies with strict and voluntary industry standards for advertising and marketing alcoholic products, and actively takes part in industry-wide initiatives in many countries of the world.
