Sustainability

Message from Chairman

CP ALL is standing firm in our commitment to creating and sharing opportunities to all. This is in line with the CP Group’s 3-benefit principle which enables us to pay tribute to the country by creating the sustainable benefit to the country, the people and our organization. We have been consistently creating benefits and sharing opportunities to all including the small and medium enterprises, the farmers and the vulnerable groups through our ‘ Give Channel, Give Development, Give Support’ conceptual framework. This allows us to elevate the manufacturing standard of products, raise product quality, improve the quality of people’s lives throughout the value chain with creativity. Consequently, the connectivity of micro economy and macro economy is strengthened to accommodate the global evolution sustainably. In tandem, we empower the youth and vulnerable groups by making a quality education accessible through CONEXT ED Project and the Panyapiwat’s scholarship program. This not only enables the youth and vulnerable groups a secured and self-supporting life but also equips them with the environmental awareness and knowledge on environmental management for a better and sustainable community.

Over the two years in the Covid-19 crisis, CP ALL; consisting of the members of management and staffs, the network of business partners, customers and all in our value chain, has been united to relentlessly support the people who were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and restore the community economics. As we see a prominent recovery in progress, we determine
to continue participating in the making of a sustainable Thai society.

CP ALL has further developed our corporate sustainable development strategy to synchronize with the context of global sustainable development. By issuing the policy and the long-term
15 sustainable development goals (2021 – 2030), we will be able to strengthen our value chain, mitigate the climate risk, safeguard the impact of related national policy and the evolution
of modern technological development. This encourages the engagement of all sectors in driving our sustainable development goals, good corporate governance and code of conducts along
with creating values for our environment and society.

With the endeavor among our colleagues and all sectors throughout our value chain, we will be able to effectively move forward to achieve our sustainable development goals and create the
sustainable benefits to the country, the people and our organization.

Together, we have swiftly and effectively cooperated under prevention measures for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which restricted social activities. The Company has launched the new 7Delivery service which safely deliver products to consumers’ homes under the strictest health standards. This is coupled with procurement of products in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 such as medical masks, antigen test kits of quality at affordable price. These initiatives have been regarded as a success in alleviating the effects of the pandemic on the society.
