Sustainability PracticesWhile the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted businesses across the world and weakened consumer demand, we have still managed to expand our business across the region, as well as deepened our sustainability practices, including in areas related to environmental, social, and economic impacts. We have promoted and encouraged our people to adapt and evolve how they operate in their work, to help the company retain a unique leadership position in the region.
We have strived to create and share the value of growth through sustainability practices, which we have adopted from the inspirational His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great’s Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP). We have embraced his philosophy as a guiding principle, in tandem with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
Sustainable development guidelines have been implemented to protect and conserve the environment, as well as to optimize resource utilization. We have embarked on collaborations to help communities gain access to clean water sources to improve their quality of life. We also strive to reduce our ecological impact through programs such as surface water and groundwater sustainability assessment, efficient water management, watershed forest conservation, and community-level water stewardship.
We have also successfully leveraged innovation to transform post-consumer plastic bottles into recycled plastic pellets (rPET). These rPET were used to produce eco-friendly blankets, which were donated to communities as part of the “ThaiBev Unites to Fight the Cold” project. We have also spearheaded several platforms for sustainable development collaborations, including the Power of Thai Foundation, Foundation for the Institute of Social Enterprise Development Thailand (FINSEDT). One of the proudest sustainability practices is the organizing of annual Thailand Sustainability Expo (TSX) themed “Sufficiency for Sustainability,” which brings together representatives from the public, private sectors, and civil society to raise awareness on the importance of sustainable development and provide cooperation opportunities on environment conservation.
The aforementioned practices are just some examples that helped propel us to numerous awards and honors over the past years. We received a world-best overall score of 90 (out of 100) for the beverage industry in the 2021 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment for the DJSI. This is the fourth consecutive year that we have received the best worldwide industry score and the first ASEAN company to be selected too. The 2021 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment analyzes companies worldwide in terms of their performance in 30 categories across three dimensions: governance and economic, environmental, and social. On top of that, we have also remained a constituent of the DJSI World Index and the DJSI Emerging Markets Index for the fifth and sixth consecutive year, respectively. These recognitions reflect our unwavering determination to be a corporate leader in sustainability.
