World Cleanup Day 2020 by Trash Hero Bangkok
On Saturday, 19 September 2020, members of the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce and staff of the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok join a clean-up in connection with the World Cleanup Day 2020 initiative in Pattaya. This activity was organised by Trash Hero Bangkok in collaboration with our premium members, Starboard and Jotun, and Amara Watersports. Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce is taking on a more prominent role in Thailand’s foreign business community in order to support actions today for a clean and green Thailand tomorrow.
One of these actions is to play an active role in the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand (JFCCT)’s Sustainability Committee in order to push sustainability issues to the top of the organisation’s agenda at all times. Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce has two members of JFCCT’s Sustainability Committee: the CEO and founder of Starboard, a board manufacturer in Thailand, Svein Rasmussen and Eirik Mork Knudsen, Aibel Thailand‘s HSSE Manager at the plants in Thailand, which Aibel is also part of our premium members.
Svein Rasmussen is a world-class leader pushing sustainability issues in the region and is one of the persons behind Trash Hero Bangkok which has received global attention for its work.
The Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce is proud to join the Trash Hero activity again on World Cleanup Day 2020.
