Above the Ocean is a strategy that has enabled Siam Piwat Group to evolve from one of the leading retail and property industries to a future-ready organization that can connect business, people, and the planet (Prosperity People Planet) as one. We can achieve this by creating an ecosystem where all parties in the value chain benefit and grow sustainably together.

For the environment and planet restoration, our goal is to become a Regeneration Hub to manage energy and resources efficiently, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For example, our Solar Rooftop project produces electricity from solar energy, which is a renewable and clean energy source with no fuel costs. We have already set a target and announced that we will use 100% renewable energy by 2030.

To promote effective waste management among Thais, we have established the Siam Piwat 360° Waste Journey to Zero Waste project by utilizing space within our shopping malls as recycling collection centers (RCCs). In collaboration with our partners, cleaned and sorted waste is then sent to recycling facilities to be repurposed or upcycled into lifestyle products such as bags, clothes, hats, keychains, etc. Some of these products are sold in our Ecotopia, a dedicated area for sustainable products. We also offer customers and the public who bring their waste to our RCCs to exchange it for VIZ coins through ONESIAM SuperApp. This helps to encourage people to change their behavior by sorting their waste and seeing how it can be transformed from something worthless into something valuable and beneficial. Our goal is to reduce landfill waste by 50% by 2030.

As a result of the environmental activities that Siam Piwat Group has implemented, it has been able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 18,825 tons of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to planting 1,981,535 trees.

The company's executive concluded, “Siam Piwat is committed to driving sustainability with a key mission to achieve sustainable development in Thailand and pass on a livable world to everyone and future generations.”
