United Nations Definition of Sustainability

Business Sustainability in Thailand: What Does it Mean?

ESG, or Environmental, Social, and Governance criteria, are fundamental pillars shaping modern business practices towards sustainability and responsible corporate citizenship. Aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), ESG encompasses a broad spectrum of considerations. Sustainability for Thai SME Companies is essential now, especially if your company is in the global supply chain.

ESG encompasses principles guiding companies to sustainability, including reducing emissions, promoting diversity, ensuring transparency, and fostering inclusive governance structures. By integrating ESG principles, businesses enhance long-term resilience, reputation, and value creation potential, thereby contributing to UN SDG achievement.

Our consultancy services assist companies in navigating ESG complexities, enabling informed decisions aligned with their values and driving positive impact. Our programs are designed with the smaller to medium sized company needs in mind.

Business Sustainability in Thailand. Solutions for SME’s: Environmental

Environmental sustainability in ESG and UN SDGs involves responsibly managing resources. It includes reducing environmental impacts and promoting conservation. Integrating sustainability into business strategies enhances resilience and creates stakeholder value.

If your company is in the global supply chain of larger companies, then it’s very likely you will be expected to comply with certain reporting requirements of Environmental Sustainability. We can help.

Business Sustainability in Thailand. Solutions for SME’s: Social

Social sustainability, part of ESG and UN SDGs, fosters inclusive communities, prioritising well-being, rights, diversity, equity, and inclusion. It involves fair labour practices, safe working conditions, and supporting local communities. Engaging stakeholders and addressing social issues, companies enhance reputation and drive sustainable growth.

Business Sustainability in Thailand. Solutions for SME’s: Good Governance

Good governance within the context of ESG and the UN Sustainable Development Goals is a cornerstone of responsible corporate conduct. It entails transparent decision-making processes, ethical business practices, and accountability mechanisms that uphold the interests of all stakeholders. Good governance ensures that companies operate with integrity, fairness, and adherence to legal and regulatory frameworks. It involves establishing robust board structures, fostering diversity and inclusion, and promoting effective risk management practices. By prioritising good governance, businesses can build trust with investors, employees, customers, and the wider community, thereby driving sustainable growth and long-term value creation.

Are We a Good Fit to implement your Business Sustainability programs in Thailand?

Why should an SME develop Sustainability Programs / ESG?

For businesses serving EU and Western markets, clients often demand Sustainability reporting. This encompasses Environmental and Social Sustainability aspects.

Thailand is now entering into a EU-Thailand Free Trade Agreement and Sustainable Business Practices will definitely be important for Thai companies to be competitive in those markets or be part of the supply chain of EU larger companies.

Businesses report needing third-party audits to qualify as valued Supply Chain Partners overseas. As many SMEs lack in-house expertise, we offer you that valuable experience and support.

Business Sustainability in Thailand. Solutions for SME’s. We are the perfect solution to implement your Sustainability programs in Thailand.

What Kinds of Companies does Ashlar work with?

As an SME, Ashlar offers flexible and tailored solutions, prioritizing practicality and continual improvement. Conversely, unlike larger competitors, we understand SME limitations.

Typically, we will work with clients that do not always have the internal resources (people, experience, time) that can effectively implement sustainable management solutions. We prefer to work with clients that aren’t just interested in merely “complying” with regulations or complying with client requests for Sustainable Systems. Our clients are interested in making real and sustainable business improvements to their operations.

Why Should we outsource Sustainability for Thai SME Companies to Ashlar?

Outsourcing your sustainability solutions to Ashlar offers several benefits. As an SME manufacturer, you may lack personnel with expertise in developing Environmental Systems, Health & Safety Systems, and associated policies. If your company is struggling to adhere to the sustainability requests of your clients and prospects, we can help.

Our support provides your HR Manager with new ideas for improving human relations, safety, and health, enhancing employee happiness and retention. We possess a core understanding of sustainability reporting and practices expected by global clients, including alignment with standards like the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) and the UN 17 Sustainability Development Goals.

Outsourcing can reduce costs for Safety & Health Managers. As an SME, you may still wish to manage your Environmental Sustainability. However we can offer you ideas and solutions more suitable to SME businesses

By having your own Sustainability program and reporting system, your company can join the thousands of global companies making a concerted effort towards business sustainability. We can help you stand out from your competition here in Thailand by having sustainability programs of your own and touting your successes to the community, your employees and your customers.
