In the quest to cultivate awareness and encourage actions towards sustainable development, ThaiBev’s Chief Executive Officer, Thapana Sirivadhanabhakdit, has remarked on the triumph of this mission. At the event’s final ceremony on Sunday, Thapana spoke about the promising increase of participants at this year’s gathering, seeing it as a clear sign of ever-growing acknowledgment of sustainability matters, especially amongst upcoming generations.
The convention, expertly orchestrated by ThaiBev, saw its commencement on September 29 at the prestigious Queen Sirikit Convention Centre, located in Bangkok’s bustling business district. Packed from corner to corner, it displayed a bountiful array of activities, exhibits, and engaging discussions centralised around the compelling theme of sustainability.
Beaming with gratitude, Thapana expressed his thanks towards all collaborating partners for their immense contributions, which undeniably led to the massive success of this event. But he was not just filled with gratitude; Thapana also shared his ambitious dream of elevating this expo to global ranks.
The CEO emphasized the importance of two crucial aspects of ensuring sustainable development – monitoring and volunteerism. He highlighted how vital it was to continuously monitor and evaluate the efforts put forth by everyone involved. He also acknowledged the immeasurable value volunteerism brought for the propagation of positive impacts across society.
“Remember always,” Thapana implored his audience, “that paying consistent attention, and the diligent evaluation of ourselves, is integral to our growth. If we do not put these steps into action, we may likely miss identifying issues we need to improve on or walk towards next.”
Tongjai Thanachanan, ThaiBev’s head of Sustainable Business Development, joined in the chorus of gratitude, extending her thanks to over 240 participating Thai and international organisations. Over these bustling ten days, they shared their own journeys towards embodying sustainability.
Thapana expressed his aspirations that the expo would spark in every Thai the motivation to proactively embrace sustainability. He highlighted the critical role each individual plays in this global challenge, pointing to the need for nurturing a sustainability culture at an individual level. He entrusts that this would nurture people’s ability to contribute beneficially to their country and the broader world.
To culminate his address, Thapana assured that this engaging expo will not cease, but continue as a yearly gathering for sharing and bolstering the quest for sustainability. To the attendees eagerly awaiting the news, he confirmed that the next Thailand Sustainability Expo would take place the following year, from September 27 to October 6.
