Message from theManaging Director
In the next ten years, the global trend, as well as in Thailand, will be shifting toward the use of renewable energy as the main sources of power. Hydroelectrical energy, which is one of CKPower’s areas of expertise, is forecasted to be the most profitable due to it being a clean, low-cost, and sustainable source of energy. Since the development of sustainability has been one of our strategies and goals, we are therefore prioritizing renewable energy to ensure energy security for Thailand and ASEAN region. The plan includes not only investing in alternative energy businesses and other sources of clean energy that utilize the latest, most environmental-friendly technologies, but also maintaining accountability to the society and our stakeholders with utmost transparency and sincere commitment to the environment. Moreover, the Company is devoted to give back to the communities and bring prosperity to the areas surrounding our power plans in order to cultivate business that is stable, strong, and prosperous in the future.
Even among the executives and staffs, the Company has promoted sustainability and environmental responsibility to encourage cooperation from them. Our employees have played a key role in designing projects and innovations aimed to resolve current environmental and social issues. For example, the Hing Hoi Project, a corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity, which has been organized for the past five years; the use of “cool mode” fabric for employees’ uniforms to reduce climate change and adverse effects on the environment; and the Company’s membership to the UN Global Compact. These efforts illustrate our mission and commitment to operate our businesses under the Ten Principles outlined by the UNGC. Furthermore, the Company also set the agenda on sustainable development to be one of the indicators on performance evaluation for everyone in the organization.
Due to the fact that sustainability had consistently been incorporated in our mission and organizational culture, the year 2020 became our proof of success and pride as the Company received numerous awards on different aspects of sustainability from both domestically and internationally. This reiterates our devotion to run the business on the basis of sustainability. All of these demonstrate that sustainability is at the heart of CKPower’s quest for endless energy.
