First, “The Level 4 Green Industry Award” signifies a commitment to nurturing a ‘Green Culture’. This involves prioritizing, promoting, and supporting collective environmental awareness and cooperation among all organizational members, along with implementing internal workplace practices that align with the sustainable development goals of the Ministry of Industry, making it an integral part of the organizational culture. This achievement has been realized through various initiatives, including Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects, Circulating Water System within the factory to reduce water consumption and zero waste discharge into the surrounding communities, and the installation of solar panels to reduce internal electricity consumption. These efforts have resulted in a substantial 25% reduction in electricity usage, equivalent to reducing 26,693.28 kgCO2e/unit during the first half of 2023.
In addition, “The Environmental Governance Award” promotes cooperation between businesses and the surrounding communities by encouraging transparent and ethical business practices, proper waste management, truthfulness in disclosures, and prioritizing environmental considerations in community development. This supports the development of industrial practices and society towards sustainability and community involvement in conducting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities through various initiatives.

This project involves land reclamation for agricultural, the development of water storage systems, and the supporting of agricultural tools to empower local communities in farming, thereby generating income for households.
