Social Responsibility

Asahi Beverages


As one of Australia’s leading beverages companies, we provide a range of alcohol and non-alcohol beverages for a variety of occasions meeting different consumer needs – from everyday hydration to occasional celebrations, and from lunchtime  beverages to relaxing after-dinner drinks.

We understand how important it is for us to be responsible – to be mindful of the resources we consume, of the messages we send, and to work with others to ensure that we make a valuable contribution to society.

Check out the link here to our Asahi Beverages ‘Be Report’ for fantastic insight into our product responsibility, environmental sustainability, the social contribution we make to the communities in which we work and live, and the health, safety, wellness and professional development of our employees.

At Asahi Beverages, we acknowledge the strong link between our raw materials and the environment from which they are sourced. 

Our Environment Policy sets out our company commitments and strategies. Our environmental plans aim to improve performance in each of the areas identified in our policy, and we have developed environmental performance indicators and set targets to help drive continuous improvement.

Climate

We are aligned to our parent company’s ambition of being Carbon Zero by 2050.  We acknowledge that this is an ambitious target, and we are working on our local roadmap to achieve . Our immediate focus for  is on reducing our carbon intensity by 2% year on year.

Waste

The generation of waste is a significant environmental issue. Generating waste represents inefficiency, consumes resources, contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and can impact on biodiversity and ecosystems.

Our business recycles approximately 90% of all waste across its manufacturing, warehouse, technical and office sites. Since 2014 our total business landfill intensity has also improved by 20%.

Health & Safety

Our commitment to a safe workplace is fundamental to what we do. Preventing harm is critical to a successful and sustainable business. Our business focuses on: improving the health and safety capability of our people, providing and maintaining safe plants and equipment, promoting behaviours that prevent harm, and improving the health and wellbeing of employees.

Our safety programs are supported and implemented through active health and safety committees at all major sites. 

Community Partnerships

Asahi Beverages’ community partnership with Whitelion was established in 2011. Whitelion is a not-for-profit community organisation that supports and empowers young people at risk to reach their full potential. 

The organisation provides a range of support services to vulnerable young people, including mentoring, employment preparation and placement, and outreach services. They offer more than a job to disadvantaged young people – they instil confidence and pride which transforms lives.

During this time, we have donated more than $1.5 million to this cause, through direct donations and through significant fundraising by our employees.

Asahi Beverages launched the Big Giveback campaign in November 2020, , with 10 cents from the sale of non-alcoholic drinks at participating locations including Schweppes, Cool Ridge water and Solo donated to flagship partner and children’s education charity The Smith Family. 

The money will help fund homework clubs, mentoring programs, stationery and other things Smith Family students need to help them stay engaged at school and reach their full potential.

Perks & Benefits

Asahi Beverages


We’re a trust-based business, and nowhere is that more true than in our recently launched Remote First Hybrid way of working.

Currently in play at our Melbourne HQ and soon to launch to our other office locations, we believe whole-heartedly in the value of coming together physically for collaboration, brainstorming and connection sessions.

We also believe that regular team catch up’s and ‘deep thinking work’ is best done at home.  This is why we’ve launched a highly flexible hybrid way of working where we ask our people to get together face -to-face once a week or so, and work from home on other days. It’s the best of both world’s really, and accommodates the diversity of our people’s work preferences and personal habits.

Other great benefits of joining our business include:

  • Inclusive and relaxed flexible working environment
  • Discount on a range of alcohol and non-alcohol drinks
  • Access to a range of non-alcohol beverages at all sites
  • Friday night drinks at our bar in head office
  • Purchase additional leave every year
  • Gym reimbursement
  • Support community partnerships
  • Contribute to our innovation lab
