Bangkok, Thailand, December 14, 2021- Delta Thailand added the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 3 “Good Health and Wellbeing” as our new target SDG in 2021. This will complement the six existing target SDGs set by the company in 2018.
Everyone’s health is a top priority for Delta Thailand during the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, our DET teams have worked with the government to offer voluntary COVID-19 testing and vaccination for over 90% of employees and subcontractors.
We are also helping the community. Delta supported Thailand’s fight against COVID-19 by donating 10,500 DC brushless blowers to support the development and production of a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Thailand’s frontline COVID-19 medical personnel. This year, we also opened our new DET7 plant as a government vaccination center and field hospital for Delta people.
Delta strives to improve wellbeing at the workplace with ISO45001 compliance and the signing of the RBA agreement by our business partner. In 2021, DET7 plant in Wellgrow Industrial Estate received the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification in the New Construction category.
Delta Thailand also joined the world-renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) 2021 in recognition of its superior environmental, social & governance (ESG) performance.
2021 onwards, Delta Thailand targets 7 goals of the UN’s 17 SDGs:
1. SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being
2. SDG 4: Quality Education
3. SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
4. SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
5. SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
6. SDG 13: Climate Action
7. SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals
This is the third year for Delta Thailand to make a formal commitment to UN SDGs as part of our SD strategy and reporting.
Entering the new normal, Delta strives to further address ongoing risks from global pandemics and continue to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our large workforce and local communities in Thailand.
