Bangkok, Thailand, November 15, 2021- Delta Thailand joined the world-renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) 2021 in recognition of our superior environmental, social & governance (ESG) performance. This is the first time for us to join DJSI after two consecutive years of S&P Global Silver Class Awards.
Delta Thailand is the only Thailand company in the “ITC Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components” industry segment in the 2021 DJSI index and is in both DJSI World and DJSI Emerging Markets region/country lists.
S&P Dow Jones Indices, the world’s leading index provider, conducts the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), which comprises a rigorous questionnaire assessing both public and non-public data submitted by participating companies.
Jackie Chang, Delta Electronics Thailand President: “Delta Thailand is honored to join the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices. This excellent news shows the global recognition of our company’s value and ESG performance. For over 30 years in Thailand, Delta has focused on our mission to satisfy our global customers with energy-efficient innovation while pioneering sustainable growth, responsible business and global citizenship. We appreciate the support of all our stakeholders and everyone who has contributed to this outstanding achievement.”
In 2020, 28.7% of 20,474 tons of input material in Delta Thailand’s production was made up of recycled composites. Delta solar rooftops generated 9,569 MWh of renewable energy and 2,716 MWh of energy savings as part of the company’s commitment to reduce carbon intensity in operations 20% by 2025.
From 2015 to 2020, Delta achieved a 39% energy intensity reduction in its Thailand operations, exceeding its original target of 30% reduction.
DET’s DJSI index membership makes us a globally recognized ESG leader which drives sustainability by educating and soliciting cooperation from partners and suppliers for anti-corruption and sustainable business practices.
Our SD, Energy Management and operations team’s extensive reporting and data collection help to measure and encourage recycled materials usage and carbon footprint tracking of its products.
