GM Thailand Wins ACE Recognition Gold Award for Seventh Year
The AMCHAM ACE Awards have been recognizing achievements in corporate social responsibility for nine years, and General Motors and Chevrolet have become a welcome, consistent presence. This year, GM and Chevy Thailand won the AMCHAM CSR Excellence Recognition Gold Award for the seventh straight year, with GM Southeast Asia President Ian Nicholls accepting the honor at a special ceremony in November.
“The ACE Recognition Gold Award, which we are receiving for the seventh consecutive year, demonstrates GM’s long-term commitment to giving back to the communities where we live and work and driving a better tomorrow for everyone, as we envision a future of zero crashes, zero emissions, and zero congestion,” said Nicholls.
The awards recognize companies that demonstrate the value of corporate social responsibility — operating in a way that is beneficial both to the business’s local community as well as the global community as a whole.
Chevrolet Thailand has shown its commitment to CSR through initiatives and education, including its efforts to make everyone within its bubble aware of the importance of environmental protection and preservation. Efforts to do so include a January expedition to Kaeng Krachan National Park, where artificial salt licks and semi-permanent fences were installed to help preserve the natural ecosystem.
This commitment to CSR carries over into its manufacturing and business practices. Recently, the GM Thailand Rayong plant was honored at the Thailand Energy Awards for its efforts in the name of energy conservation. GM Rayong is a zero-waste facility, meaning that all waste created from operations is reused, recycled, or converted to energy.
