Mountain Goat goes beyond simple carbon offsetting to incorporate many other sustainable techniques such as choosing an existing building with north-facing solar orientation to allow winter sunlight and to fuel the nine solar panels and installing an 11,000 litre tank for drinking and toilet flushing. Mountain Goat adheres to localism values by retaining eighty percent of their beer within a twenty-kilometre radius of the brewery and strives to purchase local, good quality ingredients. All the boxes, coasters, letterheads, business cards etc they order are made from recycled paper.

Victorian farmer Tim Carey successfully applied to change the source of 19 million litres of his existing licence from surface water to groundwater, and from agricultural to commercial purposes. This allowed him to truck the water to a bottling plant run by Mountain H2O, owned by Asahi. In 2018 residents of Stanley, Victoria, lost a four-year court battle to stop the farmer bottling local groundwater for Asahi. The residents were left with a A$90,000 bill for legal costs.

In 2013 Coca-Cola Amatil, Schweppes Australia (part of Asahi Beverages) and Lion Pty Ltd filed proceedings in the Federal Court challenging the legal validity of the Northern Territory's Container Deposit Scheme (CDS).

The Boomerang Alliance estimates a CDS would increase recovery by 80%.

Asahi Breweries is developing 'high-biomass sugarcane' or 'Monster Cane', designed to produce ethanol without sacrificing sugar output. Could be seen as a positive as ethanol is carbon-neutral with CO2 released in the combustion of the fuel offset by the CO2 captured by plants through photosynthesis. Critics also say ethanol is no solution to global warming if massive inputs of fossil fuels are required to grow the crops and power the facilities used to produce ethanol and land is taken from suppling crops for food and feed.
