Bangkok, May 27, 2022 – Delta Thailand joined the inaugural edition of the Climate Leaders Asia-Pacific 2022 list by the Financial Times and Nikkei Asia in recognition of our superior environment, social & corporate governance (ESG) performance and continued dedication to reducing our carbon footprint.
The joint initiative aims to recognize corporate citizens across the Asia Pacific region that are contributing substantially to mankind’s sustainability efforts. Over the past eight years, Delta Thailand has won two ASEAN Energy Awards and 13 Thailand Energy Awards for its green building and energy management projects. We have already installed 6.7 MWp capacity of solar rooftop systems in Thailand we target to have 10 MWp capacity by 2023.
Selection for the Climate Leaders Asia-Pacific 2022 list includes months of intensive research, scrutiny of existing emissions data, public calls for participation and direct contact with companies in the region. The most outstanding companies were identified on the basis of successfully reducing their core greenhouse gas emissions relative to their revenue.
Delta Electronics has a total of 29 green buildings and two green data centers worldwide including two LEED Gold certified green factories in Thailand. From 2015 to 2020, Delta Thailand has made a 44.7% reduction in accumulated energy intensity. The company also achieved a 29% reduction in GHG intensity by 2021 with 2017 as a base year.
In 2018, Delta Thailand joined the Nikkei Asia300, an exclusive list of the biggest and fastest-growing companies from 11 economies across the continent. Media conglomerate Nikkei Inc. selects the companies on the Asia300 list based on market capitalization, with consideration given to growth potential and geographic balance to focus on ASEAN economies.
