The Recycling For Kids Project had collected paper waste and decorative materials from meetings of APEC Business Advisory Council–ABAC and APEC CEO Summit 2022, then recycled them and made them into beautiful, durable, and environmentally- friendly bookshelves. This is one of the solutions from SCGP Recycle which promotes waste segregation at source and managed waste storage before sending them to the recycling process. We also support green meetings, effective use of resources, waste and greenhouse gas reduction, that comply with Bio-Circular-Green Economy (BCG) guidelines.
Mr. Danaidej Ketsuwan, CFO, SCGP, stated that “SCGP has continually adopted the ESG framework for its business operations. In order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, the Company focuses on creating innovations for consumers, and also cares for the environment and social development on the basis of transparency. We set goals and strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to Net Zero by 2050.”
“We are delighted to take part in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings – APEC 2022 Thailand that drives the Green Economy by hosting green meetings. SCG and SCGP have provided decoration materials made from recycled paper at the meeting venues. We are ready to promote the sustainable use of resources, in accordance with the Circular Economy principles, by encouraging waste segregation at source, as well as providing solutions from SCGP Recycle to help collect paper waste, and later recycling them into raw materials for the production of strong and beautiful paper bookshelves that will be useful again when they are handed over to children.
