Roongrote Rangsiyopash, President and CEO of SCG, said, “This project not only develops and extends innovations and technologies from leading international organizations but also plays a crucial role in encouraging industrial sectors to collaborate in addressing the global warming crisis in line with Thailand’s goals attaining carbon neutrality by 2050 and achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2065, which is consistent with SCG’s ESG 4 Plus approach.”
Koji Sato, President of Toyota, commented, “Today’s announcement follows a meeting between the top managements of SCG and Toyota in December last year, where the view was shared that we should work with partners to implement what contributes to Thailand. We are very much encouraged that we can collaborate with SCG which has long been supporting us. Together with SCG and CJPT, we will accelerate our efforts toward carbon neutrality so we can give back to Thailand that has supported our business.”
Hiroki Nakajima, President of CJPT, said, “Through this collaboration, CJPT will join hands with various partners to drastically strengthen the movement of people and goods in Thailand while taking on what we can do now to reduce CO2 emissions. We would like to help enhance people’s quality of life, in our efforts to repay our gratitude to the Thai society.”
CJPT, which joined the agreement, is capitalized by Isuzu Motors Limited, Suzuki Motor Corporation, and Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. in addition to Toyota, and is promoting initiatives centered on logistics efficiency and electrification. A new company “CJPT-Asia” (tentative) will be established in Thailand as soon as the necessary procedures and preparations are in place, to further accelerate CJPT’s carbon neutrality initiatives in Asia, including this collaboration. As part of CJPT’s efforts in Asia, Hino Motors, Ltd. is also participating in exploring areas of contribution towards this collaboration. Since carbon neutrality should be tackled by all industries and all people in a joint manner, the three companies of SCG, Toyota and CJPT would like to further collaborate widely with partners who share the same view and intention towards carbon neutrality and giving back to Thailand.
