Suntory will collaborate with Yamanashi Prefecture on decarbonizing Suntory Hakushu Distillery and Suntory Minami Alps Hakushu Water Plant located in Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan, by installing the country’s largest 16 megawatt-size “Yamanashi Model Power-to-Gas (P2G) System”* at the company’s Hakushu facilities by 2025. This is part of Suntory Group’s work to meet its 2030 target to halve GHG emissions in its direct operations*3 such as by utilizing green hydrogen and renewable electricity to ultimately achieve net zero GHG emissions across its entire value chain by 2050.
In collaboration with UK based Malt supplier Muntons Plc (Muntons), sustainable agriculture and supply chain consultancy Future Food Solutions Ltd (FFS), and local barley farmers in the East Anglia region, the project will start production from 2023 with the ambition to produce 50% lower GHG emissions within five years.

-Aim for net zero greenhouse gas emissions across the whole value chain by 2050.
