Sustainable Beverage Procurement Policy

At Blind Tiger, Inc., we are committed to sourcing ingredients, materials, and services for our beverage production that have the lowest possible environmental impact, contributing to the creation of a sustainable society.

Our dedication to sustainability extends to every aspect of our
operations, including procurement. In line with this commitment, our procurement policy prioritizes the following criteria:

a) Avoidance of environmentally polluting substances and practices.
b) Emphasis on resource and energy conservation through the use of renewable resources and efficient practices such as miniaturization.
c) Collection of resources in a manner that does not harm the ecosystem.
d) Preference for items that can be used over the long term through repair and parts replacement.
e) Consideration of reusability of materials and components.
f) Preference for items designed for recyclability at the end of their lifecycle.
g) Evaluation of ease of disposal or treatment of items.
h) Preference for items with disclosed environmental information.
i) Consideration of items manufactured or sold by business operators actively engaged in environmental preservation, such as those with ISO 14001 certification.

Through this policy, we aim to:
• Ensure compliance with the laws and regulations of the countries in which we operate.
• Promote the highest standards of economic, social, ethical, and environmental practices in our procurement processes.
• Identify and mitigate risks associated with procurement activities.
• Communicate this policy with our stakeholders, both internally and externally, and raise awareness among our vendors and suppliers.

We recognize that continual improvement in procurement performance is essential to our sustainability objectives, and we value the partnership of our suppliers in this ongoing journey.
