About >>>History


First Step Towards Social Sustainability

The Thailand Business Council for Sustainable Development was established in November 1993 by Mr. Anand Panyarachun, former Prime Minster of Thailand, with current membership of 36 high profile business leaders from 36 companies (both Thai & MNC). The objective of the TBCSD is to promote environmental awareness within the business sector under the concept of "sustainable development". The Thailand Environment Institute provides the Secretariat support for the TBCSD.

The TBCSD focuses on three main programs consisting of the following:

  (1) Policy Development in Thailand;
(2) Capacity Building with regard to Business Competitiveness and Good Practices;
(3) Raising Public Awareness of Cultural and Environmental Issues.



The Future One Step Forward
The TBCSD continues on the path of environmental improvement in partnership with business by promoting the concept of “Sustainable Development”. It’s focus remains the conservation of natural resources and the environment, for future generations, as evidenced in the TBCSD Honorary Chairman’s message

  “In today’s world of vigorous competition, we should join hands to raise environmental awareness and improve environmental conditions for our own protection and preservation. More so, since these actions would strengthen our capacity in facing the challenges of competition in business. Knowledge, wisdom and creativity of Thais are outstanding, valuable and the kernel of Thai culture. In the very near future, I wish to see that every organization pays serious attention to sustainable environmental management. I strongly believe this is possible.”



Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world by making more sustainable businesses in Thailand more successful
