Management to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Problems

Nowadays, energy usage tends to increase and directly impacts the world’s climate, the lives of living things, and the environment around the world. The Company, therefore, has a management mechanism in place to reduce the impacts of climate change from risky activities that potentially cause high impacts.

The Company is one of the organizations in the industrial sector producing ready-made food and beverages that is aware of and acknowledges such problems. Therefore, we are committed to being a company of creation, increasing productivity with social and environmental responsibility, and desiring employees to work happily in a good environment. This commitment is carried out In line with the Company’s policy with a clear objective in the area of sustainable development following international standards. This is one of the operational strategies for reducing the amount of greenhouse gases and encouraging executives and employees to gain knowledge and understanding of the concept of the organization’s carbon footprint, enabling them to calculate the amount of carbon footprint used by the organization. All of these lead to the development of guidelines for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in various activities and managing the reduction of greenhouse gases with efficiency and effectiveness in a sustainable manner.

Therefore, the Company has provided the organization’s carbon footprint according to ISO 14064-1 as one of the methods to disclose information on the amount of greenhouse gases emitted from various factory activities. This will lead to the determination of management guidelines to reduce greenhouse gas emissions according to the energy conservation plan on an ongoing basis.

The Company’s assessment of the factory boundary in Sam Phran District, Nakhon Pathom Province, is the evaluation of the organization’s carbon footprint for the first year. The calendar year of 2023 is set to be used as the base year for calculating the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. The Company aims to reduce the amount of carbon footprint every year onwards to reduce greenhouse gas problems from business operations in the future.

The organization’s carbon footprint is divided into three scopes as follows:

Scope 1 is a calculation of the direct carbon footprint from the production process or direct operations of the organization, whether stationary combustion (e.g., production machinery) or mobile combustion (e.g., cars) and other leakage and channels.

Scope 2 calculates indirect carbon footprint from energy usage such as electrical energy, thermal energy, and steam. This scope is considered to be an indirect greenhouse gas emission that is not caused by production in the organization.

Scope 3 calculates other indirect carbon footprints, such as the travel of employees or external agencies related to the organization.

Fuel Consumption Target for 2024

The fuel consumption in 2023 is 32.14 liters per ton. The target for 2024 is less than 31.51 liters per ton. Some measures will be in place to improve boiler efficiency and reduce fuel consumption by 16.67% compared to 2023.


In 2023, the Company had direct greenhouse gas emissions of 13,864.96 ton carbon dioxide equivalents (or kilograms) and the amount of indirect greenhouse gas emissions 7,572.40 ton carbon dioxide equivalents (or kilograms), totaling 34,719.98 ton carbon dioxide equivalents (or kilograms. The calendar year 2023 was set

as the base year for calculating the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. The Company aims to reduce the amount of carbon footprint of the organization in the coming years. The verifier is Foundation for Industrial Development Management System Certification Institute (Thailand) (MASCI)
