TPI Polene Groups target to be Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emission Producer by 2024

The Board of Directors and top management are committed to a Net Zero GHG Emission policy to achieve zero net greenhouse gas emissions, in order to reduce the impact on the climate to low carbon production, which is in line with the government's international pledge that Thailand will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050.

TPI Polene Group has continued to implement the Net Zero GHG Emission policy by continually improving the technology and efficiency of cement production. As a result, it can reduce heat consumption, reduce repair costs, and use waste as an alternative fuel for coal by up to 30-40%, making TPI Polene Thailand's first cement plant to use waste fuel to replace coal, which in addition to reducing the cost of cement production, can also reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.

In 2021,  TPI Polene Group used a total of approximately 2.19 million tons of waste as coal substitute fuel in the production process of cement plants and power plants. 

Technology and innovation to drive towards business development

Government measures to control outbreaks of COVID-19 as well as the adaptation of the general public have resulted in a change in the lifestyles of people around the world and have created unprecedented challenges for business and economic activities. TPI Polene Group has used biotechnology and innovation to create value-added benefits for its products and to support the agricultural sector of the country by creating a bio-economy and new normal bio-sanitary products, including Bio Knox (dietary supplement of natural calcium and vitamin C), Mocrome Knox Solution (used to spray to reduce germs), TPI mouthwash (to reduce the accumulation of pathogens). All three healthcare products have been tested and certified by the Faculty of Medicine of Siriraj Hospital and the Academic Service Center of Chulalongkorn University, that they are effective in combating pathogens such as SARS-CoV2, PRRS, PDCoV, PCV2 and RVA, etc. This innovative biotechnology can help Thai people to avoid the costs of preventing current viral pathogen outbreaks.  It also has a lower cost compared to medicines imported from abroad, which are relatively expensive.

In addition, digital technology changes have been evolving in the economic system, resulting in various transactions that are increasingly used on online platforms with digital devices - this new consumer behavior has spread widely. TPI Polene Group has established adaptive approaches to support changing consumer behavior based on technological advancements by developing online ordering and online payment platforms.
