Rayong – 7 June 2024: SCG Chemicals or SCGC, led by Namthip Samphowprasert, Brand Management and CSR Director, along with volunteer employees, participated in the “World Oceans Day 2024” event. The event was organized by the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, to raise awareness among all sectors about the importance of oceans and to encourage collective efforts to preserve the richness of Thai oceans.

We also drive “Innovation for Better Marine,” which includes innovations such as floating litter traps and SCGC Fish Homes.
