PTTGC has a Committee responsible for governing sustainability in the organization, overseeing policy, strategy, and work plans which align with the company’s targets and international standards. The Sustainable Development Committee (SDC) acts as a working group dealing with implementation of sustainability initiatives; ensuring that the plans are in alignment with PTTGC’s goals and international standards; sustainability management for PTTGC Group Companies; supporting other departments in adhering to the sustainability policy; and as a focal point for collaboration with other parties.
