Factories in Thailand are ordered to “go green.” By 2025, all factories across the country need to have a Green Industry certification which means they are in line with standards set by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation to help developing countries move to more environmentally-friendly technologies and initiatives.
All 71,130 industrial plants in Thailand will need to abide by the UN’s Green Industry standards which are intended to secure resource-efficient low-carbon growth while also protecting the environment and creating new jobs. The deadline for the certification is including in the Thai government’s action plan to promote environmental practices over the next 16 years.
Around 20,000 factories in Thailand have received Green Industry certificates since 2011, according to the Department of Industrial Works. 110 factories have Green Industry labels which mean the products were made in an eco-friendly way.
