People & Society

Health and 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 plant and equipment, promoting behaviours that prevent harm, and improving the health and wellbeing of employees. This is laid out in our Health and Safety Policy.

Our Health and Safety Policy sets out the company commitments and strategies. There are plans in place to improve the health and safety performance in each of the areas identified in our policy. Our programs are audited to ensure we comply with legal requirements and company procedures and standards.

Our safety programs are supported and implemented through active health and safety committees at all major sites. This allows for the input of and consultation with employees in matters that affect the safety of their workplace. For example, we actively involve operational personnel in the identification, assessment and control of hazards and risks in the workplace.

The value of partnerships

We recognise that the greatest results will come from working in partnership with others. 

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.

We chose to align with Whitelion because we see great merit in providing development opportunities and positive role models to young people, particularly those who have been disadvantaged.

Since partnering with Whitelion, employees from across the business have been involved in many ways, including proactive fundraising at sites, participating in formal Whitelion fundraising activities, taking on personal commitments to mentor young people, offering time and expertise to assist Whitelion and providing employment opportunities.

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

Partnering with our customers

Increasingly, our customers are focusing on environmental and sustainability strategies. By proactively working with them, together we can make a positive contribution by working on more substantial sustainability initiatives. 

Partnering with our suppliers

Our partnerships with our suppliers are very important to us. Asahi Beverages engages a diverse range of suppliers and contractors that provide goods and services which are critical to ensuring we can make, sell, market and distribute our products. Working collaboratively enables us to develop new and innovative products in a responsible way.

We are continuously looking at how we can do things better, which includes engaging the right suppliers to suit the needs of our business, while also protecting the communities from which our products are sourced.
