Support of Best Practice in Electric Utilities Industry
GPSC places great emphasis on the implementation of best practice in accordance with the government rules and regulations. In 2019, the company accommodated the operations of the Petroleum Institute of Thailand (PTIT), an independent and impartial non-profit organization, and the Federation of Thai Industries (F.T.I.) through participation as members of the board and the committee in order to create a collaborative network that acts as a knowledge exchange platform. The topics range from work experience, best practices in technology and standards or criteria used in each party’s company to environmental stewardship. Such a project aims to provide insight knowledge to the participants while fostering a positive corporate image and trust among the government agencies, communities and stakeholders.
Moreover, representatives from GPSC, on behalf of the group, periodically met with the government agencies in charge of the environmental protection to present and exchange useful information, particularly regarding the law and operations of the company. In addition, the representatives also kept up-to-date with new legislation to be imposed by the government. To illustrate, the representatives followed up on the draft of the Climate Change Act aimed to enforce Carbon Tax and Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), whereby power generation business is one of the five businesses subject to. In this same year, the GPSC team also successfully provided essential supporting information needed to set a new standard guideline for a wastewater drainage system, specifically for the Electric Utilities industry.
