Press Release: 12th August 2016
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is fundamental to our business. By taking responsibility for the impact our work has on clients, suppliers, partners, investors, communities as well as the environment, we seek to improve the quality of life for society as a whole. Developing innovative sustainable solutions is an integral part of who we are and we ensure that sustainability considerations underpin everything we do. With CSR and sustainability at the forefront of what we do we are able to enrich and improve communities across ASEAN and create positive legacies for future generations.
Our CSR is also reflected in the value we place on our staff. Our staff’s wellbeing is paramount and we embrace diversity and foster an open and inclusive learning culture. We actively assist and contribute to staff’s Continuous Professional Development and encourage both internal and external training which is closely monitored by Senior Managers.
We collaborate with our key suppliers and partners and treat them fairly and we are committed to responsible and ethical practice.
We work to minimise the environmental impacts of our own operations and those of the projects in which we are involved. One of our recent achievements supporting local communities included promoting and sponsoring World Water Monitoring Day in Bangkok, Thailand which comprised providing educational support and the supply of monitoring equipment to a local community initiative.
Our staff also recently participated in the annual Turtle Conservation Programme and Turtle Release Event at the Kung Krabaen Bay Royal Development Study Centre, Chanthaburi to mark the celebration of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand’s 82nd birthday. Eighty-two one year old Green Sea Turtles (Chelonia mydas), together with 820,000 marine animals (crabs, fishes and prawns) were released to assist in restoring the Chanthaburi region’s marine ecosystem.
