Caltex Station in Bangkok earns top green building recognition
In a move highlighting its commitment to sustainability, Chevron’s Caltex Srinakarin service station in Bangkok, Thailand, has been awarded the Platinum Level Green Building status. This accolade, conferred by the Thailand Rating of Energy and Environmental Sustainability (TREES), is the highest recognition from the Thai Green Building Institute (TGBI).
As a Chevron-owned, retailer operated station, Caltex Srinakarin achieved high scores across eight main environmental impact categories: energy and atmosphere, water conservation, indoor environmental quality, site and landscape, materials and resources, building management, environmental protection, and green innovation.
These combined efforts helped the station reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 28,145 kilograms (roughly 31 tons) each year since 2021.
“This certification serves as a reminder to our partners, customers and employees that we’re going to be part of the energy equation for years to come,” said Shashank Nanavati, chairman and general manager of Chevron’s Thailand Downstream operations.
The achievement underscores Thailand’s ongoing efforts to combat climate change. The country, ranked among the top 50 nations most affected by climate change, has set an ambitious goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2065.
“Chevron believes in achieving a lower carbon future and we’re proud to deliver innovative solutions through our fuels products and business operations,” said Brant Fish, president of International Products. “That’s energy in progress.”
