SD Framework and Strategy

Sustainable Development Journey

PTTEP set sight to become a sustainable organization since its inception in 1985. The journey started with a goal to be a "green organization" to which environment stewardship and management was a priority. The sustainable development concept that involves Environmental, Social and Governance elements was subsequently applied and in 2011, PTTEP participated in the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), demonstrating our commitment to uphold the UNGC 10 principles that highlight 4 main aspects - human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. Later in 2015, PTTEP, adhering to all advanced criteria, was named at Advanced Participant level of the UNGC.


Moreover, PTTEP has adopted several international sustainability assessment criteria, like Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), in formulating the organization's sustainable development framework. PTTEP has been a member of DJSI World Oil and Gas Upstream & Integrated Industry for 7 consecutive years since 2014 and was named the Industry Leader in this category in 2016 and 2019.

In 2019, PTTEP formulated Sustainable Development framework and strategy, and set clear long-term targets (2030). Under the inside-out approach, PTTEP strived for impressive performance on strong business foundation, to deliver sustainable values to society (From We to World).

In 2020, the Board of Directors made an important step in pushing the organization's sustainable development for concrete implementation. It approved sustainability strategy with long-term targets and SD Statement, to ensure common understanding among employees and other stakeholders. The Corporate Governance Committee's scope of responsibilities was extended to cover the formulation, supervision and promoting of overall sustainable development policy and activities which are closely monitored on a quarterly basis. The Committee was renamed to Corporate Governance and Sustainable Development Committee, following the shareholders' resolution at the 2020 annual meeting.





Sustainable Development Framework and Strategy

Sustainable Development Framework

PTTEP developed the Sustainable Development Framework as the foundation for the organization's long-term strengths, and a tool to achieve the "Energy Partner of Choice" vision. The framework emphasizes the balance of "Be Smart" (High Performance Organization - HPO), "Be Good" (Governance, Risk Management and Compliance - GRC), and "Be Responsible" (Stakeholder Value Creation - SVC). PTTEP's sustainable development framework and sustainability-related material issues correspond with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.



Sustainable Development Framework's key components are as follows:

  1. High Performance Organization (HPO) or "Be Smart"
    Emphasizing excellence in all business elements as required by international standards, for greater competitiveness and capability to adjust to future changes.
  2. Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) or "Be Good"
    Emphasizing transparent and efficient operations for the organization's stability and sustainability, through governance, appropriate risk management and internal control, as well as strict compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
  3. Stakeholder Value Creation (SVC) or "Be Responsible"
    Committed to the creation of long-term values for all stakeholder groups, through responsibility for natural resource conservation, environmental rehabilitation as well as community and social development.

Under the framework, PTTEP believes that with the operations on strong foundation for stakeholders' interests, we will deliver values and sustainable development to society as a whole (From We to World).

Sustainable Development Strategy

Guided by the Sustainable Development Framework, PTTEP developed Sustainable Development Strategy based on the assessment of material issues on sustainability. The strategy is to prepare PTTEP for future challenges that include energy transition and ensure continued values for stakeholders. The strategy and long-term goals (2030) are as follows:



Aside from sustainable development strategy and long-term targets, PTTEP vehemently proceeds with projects and initiatives to materialize the sustainable development framework's 3 components, to achieve sustainability in all dimensions which will ensure stakeholders' trust and confidence and eventually make PTTEP the Energy Partner of Choice.
