|Details: In Chon Buri last February, Tesco Lotus opened the first zero-carbon store ever in Asia. Having previously opened two other green stores (Rama I in 2004, and Salaya in 2008), the Chon Buri zero-carbon store is the third location in Tesco Lotus's green family. This gives the company a claim to being the most environmentally enlightened of the superstore brands in Thailand.|
This month the CSR Committee will hear from the Tesco Lotus Head of Public Affairs Charkrit Direkwattanachai. who will show how his company is engaged in “Making a Good Community to Live in, Caring for the Environment, and Green Stores.” The lessons to be shared with everybody include: power generation/savings; emissions control; waste management; and water treatment, to name only a few areas. Perhaps we can also learn a thing or two about return on investment, while we're at it!
The Committee will also be announcing plans for this year's ACE -- AMCHAM CSR Excellence -- Recognition.
