Manufacturing Cosmos Brewery (Thailand) Company Limited
“At present, the beer group plans to reduce energy consumption along with greenhouse gas emissions to comply with ThaiBev’s targets for 2025. The use of renewable energy will increase. Budgets have been allocated for replacing fossil-fuel based electricity with solar energy. We currently use biogas from the wastewater treatment system to replace the use of fossil fuels, through the installation of a once-through boiler. The group plans for future energy use to be sustainable. Energy consumption will decrease by modifying equipment for higher efficiency and lower power requirements. Efforts are underway to increase production efficiency by capturing carbon dioxide from fermentation to be reused in the production process (CO2 Recovery Plant). This can help lower electricity consumption, and also allow for the reuse of carbon dioxide in the production process that otherwise would be released during fermentation. The most important plan is to train employees and encourage them to participate in energy efficiency initiatives for maximum impact.
Thai Beverage Recycle Company Limited
“ThaiBev places great importance on packaging management to reduce environmental impacts. We established Thai Beverage Recycle (TBR) to collect used packaging so that they can be reused or recycled. ThaiBev follows the principles of the Circular Economy by collaborating with stakeholders, including direct and indirect suppliers, small entrepreneurs and consumers, throughout the value chain. TBR has various programs that promote stakeholder participation, such as the “Sustainable Supplier Development Project.” This project invites existing glass bottle suppliers to visit ThaiBev factories, where discussions took place about business expansion plans and future opportunities.
TCC Technology Co., Ltd.
At present, the remote sensing technology for water cycle tracking is advanced and has many applications, such as earth exploration satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles, and ground measurement stations. This enables us to integrate more data in our reporting and analyzes. The application of such technology in water management can be divided into two parts: water demand and water supply.
Sermsuk Public Company Limited
As the country’s leading beverage producer, Sermsuk PLC recognizes the importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Since 2016, with support from government bodies such as the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO), the Industrial Environment Institute, the Federation of Thai Industries, Sermsuk has participated in two carbon footprint projects, which are the “Carbon Footprint for Organization (CFO) Label Project” and the “Carbon Footprint Reduction (CFR) and Carbon Footprint of Products (CFP) Label Pilot Project”. To lead these projects, Sermsuk used its factory in Pathum Thani province, with products “Crystal Drinking Water” and “est Cola carbonated soft drinks” as pilot projects.

“Waste management for various organizations needs to be formulated into appropriate policies and plans. The application of the Circular Economy, a concept that focuses on preserving resources for maximum benefit, and recycling them for use in research or innovation to add value to waste, has allowed ThaiBev to invest in effective waste management with concrete results, and to replace old businesses, as well as to expand existing businesses to become environmentally friendly and sustainable.”
