SCGC Commitment

2021 was another year in which the world and Thailand continued to struggle with the adversity of the COVID-19 pandemic, which was wreaking havoc on people's lives and businesses. Both the public and private sectors have learned and adapted to the changes. SCGC adapted to preserve resilience, agility, and speed while adhering to well-established business continuity management (BCM) practices and collaborating with stakeholders from all groups and sectors of society. There were also new challenges posed by global climate change. SCG Chemicals was committed to conducting business in accordance with its mission of sustainable development, defining strategies and operational processes as a model organization for corporate governance and sustainable development, prioritizing health, safety, circular economy, energy and climate change, and water conservation throughout the value chain through innovation development and experience creation with customers to understand their needs. Additionally, the Company offered one-stop solutions through the i2P Center for developing products such as SCG GREEN POLYMERTM to improve manufacturing processes, achieve a low-carbon and environmentally friendly society by 2030, and achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. All of this we believe will be accomplished through cutting-edge manufacturing technology and machinery, and digital systems to control manufacturing processes and a resource and energy-efficient approach to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and clean and renewable energy sources.


Regarding post-consumer plastic management, we teamed up with leading recycler Sirplaste in Portugal to use technology to collect and transform post-consumer plastics into high-quality recycled plastic resins. Additionally, it collaborated with technology startups to develop innovative recycling technologies capable of converting waste plastic to recycled feedstock. It partnered with Braskem to assess the feasibility and approach of using agricultural by-products as bioplastics for sustainability.


SCGC has implemented a manufacturing process safety management system to monitor and control occupational, health, and security risks to achieve zero work-related accidents or illnesses while establishing personnel practices and training guidelines that emphasize ethics, basic human rights respect, and the restriction of discrimination on the basis of physical and mental differences, race, nationality, religion, language, age, skin color, education, social status, or any other legal matter.


We prioritized caring for the communities surrounding the plants and stakeholders to foster a harmonious living environment in which all challenges were shared and solved appropriately through social development initiatives. Examples include One Manager One Community (OMOC), which empowers all managers to play a role in caring for the

communities surrounding the plants; Waste-free community, which implements integrated waste management using the home, temple, school, and waste bank model to increase recycling volume; online platforms that assist community enterprises in generating revenue through merchandizing; and promotion of sustainable development operations for communities, government agencies, and businesses.


SCGC operated in accordance with corporate governance standards, providing value for the economy, society, and environment and contributing to the country's economic development. Additionally, the Company collaborated with numerous organizations both domestically and internationally to achieve sustainable development goals and to prepare for global changes while delivering sustainable value to all stakeholders.

Our Sustainability Structure

SCG Chemicals: Challenges and Goals
In 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic continued to have impacts on economies across the world, especially in Asian countries. In addition, concerns about global warming and plastic waste have prompted several countries to establish policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and launching clearer plastic waste management measures. To emphasize its leadership position in the petrochemical industry, SCG Chemicals expedited its business strategies to respond to market changes promptly and sustainably. It introduced both short-term plans to offset the impacts of the COVID-19 and long-term plans to create High Value Added product innovations and solutions that conform to the new normal and sustainable business practices.
