The Absolut Company AB and all companies within the Pernod Ricard group have a longstanding tradition of promoting responsible drinking. Responsibility is of a particular importance given the sensitive products we deal with. Our products are for most people associated with pleasure, enjoyment and socializing, but can have quite the opposite effect when not handled responsibly. Thus, all our marketing activities are conducted with care for the consumer. As a company we also have a responsibility for how we act in relation to the world around us and the society we live in. We strive to always act in a way that shows that we deserve the confidence and appreciation of our stakeholders, no matter who or where they are.

Through a broad spectrum of initiatives, often in partnership with outside organizations, including industry associations, regulators, public authorities and representatives, we as well as our affiliates are deeply committed to promoting responsible drinking and discouraging misuse of our products.

We believe responsible drinking is consistent with the maintenance of a balanced and positive lifestyle for most adults who choose to drink. For this reason, we would like to recommend the following reading: Distilled Spirits Council of the United States DISCUS, the spirits EUROPE Guidelines for the Development of Responsible Marketing Communications and Pernod Ricard’s commitments.
