Climate Change is causing severe environmental impacts and turbulence across the globe. Organisations and the general public are now focusing their attention on environmentally-friendly and sustainable business practices.
Mr. Sarawut Rachanakul, Chief Executive Officer of JBP International Paint and President of the Thai Paint Manufacturers Association, is one of the industry leaders to spearhead the company’s strong commitment in promoting sustainable business practices through words and actions rather than as a trend of doing business.
Realising the impacts on health and the environment from the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic and PM 2.5 air pollution in Thailand two years ago, JBP International Paint is committed to solving the problems by introducing new high-quality, environmentally and health-friendly paint products and plastic paint containers for consumers with support from Srithai Superware, Thailand’s leading manufacturer to ensure corporate social responsibility of the product and for the Thai people.

Mr. Chongkol Rachanakul, Chairman of Executive Committee of JBP International Paint, said, “Sustainable development and sufficient economy philosophy are the core principles that our company upholds and promotes to everyone in the organisation.

Mr. Sarawut Rachanakul, Chief Executive Officer of JBP International Paint, said, “We are aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly over the next decade. We are setting goals toward the realisation of carbon neutrality by switching or transitioning to lower carbon alternatives and developing innovative environmentally friendly technology. In addition, this will continue to play a big part in shaping product development in our industry which is good for consumers and the environment that will be the way to more sustainable production models in the future.”
Mr. Chaiwat Kulphattaravanich, Executive Director of Srithai Superware, said, “Our company’s core business principles are Environment Social and Governance (ESG). We are committed to delivering environmentally friendly products and services that help to reduce greenhouse gases emission for the better quality of life of the people and the planet.”
Mr. Suthisarn Chirathivat, Chief Executive Officer of CRC Thai Watsadu, said, “At CRC Thai Watsadu, we are ready to help deliver positive values to the society and environment by reducing energy consumption. This will set an example for the retail industry transformation to become a green retailer for sustainable business practices.”

Therefore, we are committed to building a stable and sustainable business while maintaining our responsibility for the society and environment.
