Realizing the importance of making concrete efforts regarding environmental management and energy conservation to prevent and alleviate the environmental footprint from the Bank’s operations, we have implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) in accordance with ISO 14001:2015 and applicable regulatory practices. The EMS system includes planning, setting targets and guidelines, assessing environmental risks and impacts associated with the Bank’s business operations, monitoring performance, determining corrective measures, and developing our database system and eco-efficiency data management tools. The system will enhance the planning and monitoring of the Bank’s environmental management and energy conservation undertaking to be more defined, efficient and effective.
We have established a policy on environmental management and energy conservation as a guideline for executives and staff at all levels to comply with which will benefit the Bank and the general public. Furthermore, we support training on environmental management and energy conservation to raise employees’ awareness and share knowledge on how to properly save energy and resources in our everyday lives. Our environmental management and energy conservation guideline is implemented by a working team which is a collaboration between different units. This environment and energy conservation team works to ensure efficient and effective environmental and energy management by reviewing environmental management and energy conservation policies, issuing relevant measures, setting targets, initiating and driving related projects and activities, collaborating with other functions, auditing the Bank’s energy consumption status, reviewing the performance on energy management of other functions, as well as organizing training programs and other educational activities.
We have appointed an energy management audit team to ensure that environmental and energy conservation initiatives are being successfully carried out as well as an internal working team to collect data and prepare analytical reports relating to GHG emissions and the organization’s carbon footprint. Moreover, we have commissioned a third-party verification body certified by the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (Public Organization) to audit information on greenhouse gas emissions to ensure that the information we report complies with accepted standards.
