Sustainability and responsibility are key to Beam Suntory’s business philosophy. The company joined BIER shortly after our 2006 launch, and Rick Price has been a constant presence ever since.

With a background in scientific research, engineering, and operations, Rick has been with Beam Suntory since 1997, holding several EHS positions over the years. He is currently the Director of Global Environment, Health and Safety. In addition to his role on BIER’s Steering Committee, he lends his expertise to our Water and Benchmarking working groups, and he serves as the communication liaison for connecting his EHS counterparts at the Suntory corporate headquarters in Japan.

Rick is joined by several Beam Suntory colleagues, including sustainability leaders Takenobu Shiina and Gani Slimane, and CSR communications gurus Emily Bryson York and Christine Newton.
