Thai Beverage Public Company Limited, hereby ThaiBev, has published an annual sustainability report since 2011.

This is the fifth report, for 2018, which has been prepared in accordance with the core criteria of the international GRI Standards framework of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
Its objective is to communicate important subjects related to the company’s business and sustainability practices to stakeholders. The headings and content of the report cover four core topics: economy, society, environment, and art and culture. The intention of this report is to present the strategies and methods of business operations that adhere to the principles of sustainable development and the Sufficiency Economy of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, which together form the guidelines for the continuous sustainable development of ThaiBev. ThaiBev and companies in the ThaiBev Group have willingly put these principles into practice.

Meanwhile, the setting of targets at ThaiBev must be consistent with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

The 2018 Sustainability Report is prepared for stakeholders, to demonstrate that ThaiBev’s business operations adhere to the best practices of sustainable development. This Sustainability Report received an audit based on financial operating results for 2018, through the accounting audit of the authorised auditor, KPMG Phoomchai Audit Co., Ltd.
