Bangkok Bank has developed a policy and practical guidelines regarding responsibility to the environment under the concept of business development towards sustainability. The Bank initiated a pilot project for systematic monitoring of its Head Office consumption of energy, water, and paper material that will be used to calculate the amount of greenhouse gases released, or the carbon footprint of the Bank.Energy Conservation Measures in Business Operations
Bangkok Bank has replaced fluorescent lamps with LED lamps in six of its largest office buildings because of its commitment to the energy conservation campaign of the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency, the Ministry of Energy. The six buildings are the Head Office, Trinity, Rama 3, Saeng Thong Thani, Rama 9, and Hua Lamphong buildings. The Bank replaced 41,000 lamps and expects to reduce electricity consumption by 3.8 MWh per year.Proper Disposal of Electronic Waste
Bangkok Bank is concerned that the disposal of electronic waste and computer parts used in its business operations may cause problems. To help the environment and reduce pollution, the Bank contracted with Tes-AMM (Thailand), an internationally-certified electronic waste management company, to provide ‘proper and complete methods of electronic waste disposal’ for the Bank. Bangkok Bank is the first and only bank in Thailand which has initiated such a program for disposal of old or unusable electronics devices under a standardized recycling process.
