The commitment, an extension of Suntory's previous sustainability programme, aims to tackle environmental sustainability challenges around the world, the company said this week. The project includes renewable energy and infrastructure investments.

The 2050 sustainability plan also includes a pledge to reduce water consumption at Suntory plants worldwide.

The programme follows the creation of a joint-venture this week that will invest in chemical recycling. Suntory said the JV, which also includes domestic rival Asahi, will continue an existing recycling partnership with US firm Anellotech, which has developed a process that converts mixed plastic waste into basic chemicals to make new plastics.

Other alcohol companies have launched projects that aim to reduce energy waste. Both Diageo and Pernod Ricard have unveiled plans this year to open carbon-neutral distilleries.
