"In China, I am the main IT person and seen as the “IT expert” for everything. I enjoy it. When I reflect on my greatest achievements at Beam Suntory, I think about projects like the product QR code® solution or the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system that I implemented. But also, how I have helped people and enabled them to fully use our available tools in their everyday work-life.

I work with many different parts of the business, and often, when I help someone with a technology issue or provide a new solution, I learn something in the process. I learn a great deal from my colleagues at work. My boss has been a reliable resource in many different ways. From coaching me to have a healthy work-life balance to advancing my global project management skills. He also encouraged me to study for my Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) at a prestigious university in Shanghai. His guidance, along with what I’ve been learning in my program, has given me the confidence I need to deliver value in my work, especially when working for one of the fastest growing spirits companies in China.

In the pandemic, my parents moved in with my wife, son and me. I’m the only engineer and IT professional. So, while we all have different roles, I’m often the problem solver, showing everyone how to fix things or teaching them to use a new app. No matter how complex or simple it may be, helping my family, friends and colleagues use technology is something that has become part of my life.

I believe in the power of technology and its worth. So if I can help those around me learn a new skill, I’m eager to do so. And oftentimes, teaching helps me learn and refine some of my newer skills. With technology constantly evolving, I value any learning opportunity I can get."

"Alcohol responsibility ultimately #startswithme. As a leader, and a parent, #AlcoholResponsibilityMonth is an important reminder to model responsible behaviors at work, with friends, in my community and at home. This means ongoing conversations with my kids about alcohol, how it affects them, how they can support their friends and help keep them safe. It means being a good friend to those in my community, and helping them understand the importance of moderation, and making smart choices.”

- Rachel Roberts, Global VP, Consumer & Society Sustainability
A veteran marketer, Rachel leads our Global Consumer Positive Strategy, focusing on empowering consumers to make responsible choices, offering expanded lower & no-alcohol options, providing nutrition information for our products, and reducing harmful use of alcohol.

Today, we’re celebrating #EarthDay and the importance of preserving and protecting a healthy environment for future generations. As part of our Proof Positive sustainability strategy, we have committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030, and an ambition to surpass net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. We will further reduce water use per unit produced by 50% by 2030, and replenish more water than we use in direct operation by 2040. We will plant up to 500,000 trees per year by 2030, more trees than are harvested to make our whisky barrels.

“Kentucky is the heartland of our business, and rebuilding healthy forests is critical to the future of the environment and the Central Appalachian community,” said Kim Marotta, Global Vice President, Environmental Sustainability. “Through this event and our broader partnership with The Nature Conservancy, we are working to achieve our goal while gaining deeper insight into sustainable practices that impact our industry.”

Beam Suntory’s Proof Positive sustainability strategy includes long-term commitments to further their positive impact on communities, consumers and nature, including an ambition to achieve net zero emissions and plant more trees than are harvested to make barrels for its products by 2030. https://www.beamsuntory.com/en/sustainability

This week, more than 75 volunteers from Beam Suntory, The Nature Conservancy and Green Forests Work planted nearly 7,000 saplings to help reforest a reclaimed surface mine in Middlesboro, KY — part of the Central Appalachian Mountains.

This work will improve water quality, provide long-term climate benefits, and support Beam Suntory’s goal to plant more trees than are harvested to make its barrels. https://bit.ly/3xuuFgr In 2022, Beam Suntory is committed to planting approximately 125,000 trees globally, of which 75,000 are expected to be possible through Beam Suntory's partnership with The Nature Conservancy. This effort is one of many taking place around the world as Beam Suntory employees give back over the next several weeks as part as part of its annual service event Together for Good.

As a world leader in premium spirits, we’re committed to supporting consumers in making the right choices for their personal wellbeing and to reducing alcohol-related harm. We’re investing in resources and responsibility-led messages encouraging moderation for those who choose to drink, as well as expanded low- and no-ABV options. We also support social aspects organizations and evidence-based responsibility programs around the world, and partner with the broader industry to advance global commitments to reduce alcohol misuse.

April is #AlcoholResponsibilityMonth, and we all have a role to model positive behaviors and exercise moderation whenever we choose to consume alcohol, if we choose to drink at all. Simple steps like making a plan, offering food and water to guests, and making sure everyone gets home safely can make a #DrinkSmart occasion. You can find more tips about alcohol, and how it affects you at https://www.drinksmart.com/

As the world’s third-largest premium spirits company, Beam Suntory’s commitment to the responsible consumption of alcohol is fundamental to everything we do. Drink Smart® is our platform for communicating with legal-purchase age adults about making informed, responsible choices.

“I’ve been to 56 countries, taken sailing lessons, and been cage diving with great white sharks in South Africa - definitely the wildest thing I have ever done. I have a passion and curiosity for experiencing new things, which I think comes from how I grew up. I moved around a lot and spent my childhood growing up across North and South America and Europe. I regularly had to adapt to new surroundings and was exposed to many different cultures. This is, in part, why I became so involved with SALUD [Beam Suntory’s Hispanic & Latinx Employee Impact Group] - I’m both Hispanic in the sense that I come from Spain, and Latina in the sense that I grew up in Latin America.

Back in March 2021, the Hornitos® Tequila Marketing team was running an internal contest to help employees make their Shot Worth Taking happen. I filled out the survey saying that I’d ‘mastered’ water and land through surfing lessons and running a half marathon, but wanted to experience the air by learning to fly a plane next. My application was selected, and a few months later, I had my first lesson. My parents were definitely relieved when I wrapped up my first flight safely. They're always a little nervous when I start brewing up my next adventure, but I always tell them: If you didn’t want me to seek out new adventures, you shouldn’t have had me traveling since I was two years old!

I’m a bit of a free spirit, even in my professional journey. While I do think through decisions carefully like most folks, I try not to let fear or uncertainty stop me from taking a leap. I’m fortunate that Beam Suntory encourages me to continue forging my own path and to take risks, and I’m excited for my current adventure in the Jim Beam® Global Brand House. Jim Beam® is all about community and creating experiences that matter. It’s an honor to be one of many behind this global icon, and to be charged with helping to use its platform to connect and lift up people.”

Beam Suntory is proud to join the How2Recycle® label program to assess the recyclability of our packaging in the United States and Canada. We will use its smart label system to clearly communicate transparent recycling instructions on-pack, empowering consumers to take proper action when recycling or disposing of our brands’ various packaging elements.

This partnership supports our ambitious, long-term packaging goals as part of our $1 billion Proof Positive sustainability strategy. We aim to achieve 40% recycled materials by weight across our packaging portfolio and use 100% recyclable packaging by 2030.

Water is our most invaluable natural resource. We are inspired by the Suntory Group promise to society, Mizu To Ikiru (Living with Water), taking action to protect the blessings of nature that our businesses and industry rely on.

As part of our Proof Positive sustainability strategy, we have made bold commitments to further reduce our water usage by unit of production by 50% by 2030, and recharge more water than we use in direct operations by 2040. We have already made significant progress by reducing water use per unit of production by 35% since 2015 and introducing watershed protection activities at more than half of our locations.

We are also committed to bringing safe, clean water to as many people as possible through our partnership with charity: water. We are proud to contribute to the funding of three major charity: water projects, across India, Mozambique and Cambodia, which have given over 200,000 people access to clean, safe drinking water.

WFPL News Center for Biological Diversity Kentucky Resources Council Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest But federal agencies failed to actually look in caves for imperiled bats while approving permits to build a natural gas pipeline in Kentucky. That contractor, Cardno, conducted a survey of threatened and endangered species that included the bats, but never conducted a cave survey, according to Cardno’s records. That’s despite the fact that caves and sinkholes are common in Kentucky’s karst environment and are an important winter habitat for all three imperiled bat species. This issue is that no one ever did a scientifically legitimate search for caves,” said Perrin de Jong, Center for Biological Diversity staff attorney That report did say that “no caves were observed during field surveys,” according to Cardno’s records.

Representing Beam Suntory seems like living a dream for some, but for Ray Daniel, his job as a bourbon brand ambassador is a serious responsibility to educate people about the brands. As he explains to Michael White of jewkarta, 'the fact that I’m trusted by those families, who have been making whisky for hundreds of years, is not something I take lightly'. Starting his career at a local pub in Ireland at 14, Ray remembers the time when a gin&tonic was considered a fancy cocktail there. With a dream to become a musician, he didn't intend to stay in the industry for long. He didn’t intend to settle permanently in Canada either, nor did he anticipate that a long tenure at an Irish-themed Toronto bar would eventually lead to his becoming brand ambassador for Beam Suntory’s American whiskey portfolio. Yet every development has been borne of the same impulse: a love of learning. See our latest article for the full story 👀
