Good Governance for Environment (White Flag, Green Star)

              The Project of Good Governance (White Flag, Green Star) encourages organizations to stick to the Good Governance for Environment. The project represents the cooperation among Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT), entrepreneurs in an industry estate, and communities around the estate. In this project, factories are required to reveal their environmental management information. In addition, considered a main mechanism to promote good collaboration between the government and communities, activities are held, namely opening a factory for the public to visit and view its manufacturing processes and pollution management systems. A regulatory commission for the plan to reduce and eliminate pollutions has been designated to look after pollutions problems. Besides, follow-up activities and evaluation are conducted quarterly. Any entrepreneur that can maintain international standards of environmental management continuously will be awarded with the White Flag, Green Star, which is in the form of a flag featuring a green star. This practice will boost the confidence among domestic and foreign investors. Taking part in this project, TPC has been presented with the White Flag, Green Star award for four years consecutively as a result of the examination of our factories by communities, news reporters and Maptaput Industrial Estate.

                 This is the achievement of all TPC members who unite forces to help our factories have good quality for environmental management. We are able to decrease waste, reduce water usage, and improve air quality. Our factories now look green all year round, the green area of which represents 20% of the total area. We have also planned to increase the green area to 30% within this year. What's more, communities continue participating in our advantageous activities including planting bananas, developing Son Krasip Beach, processing bananas, and making bio gas. Furthermore, in cooperation with Maptaput Municipality, doctors are provided to offer health check, examine and visit people in communities.

                 The so-called White Flag, Green Star Project was set up in 2008 by Maptaput Community and IEAP Maptaput with the objective to enable communities to examine the environmental management and impacts of factories in their community. This will thus provide opportunities for communities to give suggestion for factories about their practice as well as to exchange their opinions together.

              TPC is always ready to disclose our information to everyone. We are glad to participate in this project since the beginning. We always enjoy excellent evaluation results from an examination made every three or four times a year. Therefore, we wish to extend our gratitude to all of you for developing our Company to make it live well with communities in a happy and sustainable way.
