Due to the amalgamation in 19th December 2011, PTTGC recognized the inherent limitations in our consolidation of PTTCH and PTTAR data due to the variation in data collection system for economic, social, safety and environmental indicators amongst our operations within PTTGC. PTTGC recognizes that our data will be affected by those limitation and continue to improve the integrity of our data by strengthening and standardizing our internal data collection system.
Determining Report Content
To address the challenges and leverage from enablers resulting from the global chemical trends, PTTGC has reviewed its sustainability focus through the analysis of the international scenario, of the stakeholder expectations, of the commitments taken and of the company performances. The process to identify sustainability focus i.e. material assessment is described in the following diagram. The sustainability focus has been approved by the CSR Committee on 6th February 2012.
