Climate Lobbying Overview: PTT Global Chemical appears to be engaging positively on climate change policy in Thailand, albeit with limited engagement. Notably, the company supports the creation of an emissions trading scheme in Thailand applying to all sectors.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: PTT Global Chemical appears to broadly support action on climate change in its top-line messaging. In January 2021, the CEO Dr. Kongkrapan Intarajang supported the goals of the UN Paris Agreement. On PTT Global Chemical’s corporate website, accessed in August 2021, the company also advocated for cost-effective "short, medium, and long-term government policy" to support the transition to a low-carbon economy. In the company’s TCFD Report, published in 2021, PTT Global Chemical advocated for limiting global warming to 1.5°C.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: PTT Global Chemical appears to have limited transparent engagement with climate change policy in Thailand. In the company’s 2021 CDP Climate Change disclosure, it advocated for the creation of an emissions trading scheme in Thailand to apply to all sectors, following its participation in the voluntary Thailand Emissions Trading Scheme. On PTT Global Chemical’s corporate website in April 2021, it stated support for the Thai government’s renewable energy policy. In its Sustainability Report, published in April 2021, the company reported that it had advocated for Thailand’s GHG reduction goal by 2030.

Positioning on Energy Transition: PTT Global Chemical has limited engagement on policies relating to the energy mix, but the company appears to broadly support the energy transition in a climate statement accessed from the company website in January 2022. The news outlet, Bangkok Post, reported in December 2020 that the CEO Dr. Kongkrapan Intarajang was supportive of the transition to a low carbon economy.

Industry Association Governance: PTT Global Chemical disclosed limited information relating to its membership to industry associations in its 2020 Annual Report. The company has not published a review of its alignment with industry associations. PTT Global Chemical does not appear to have any direct memberships to industry associations covered by InfluenceMap's database.

Additional Note: PTT is headquartered in Thailand, where InfluenceMap’s LobbyMap platform can currently only make a provisional assessment of corporate climate policy engagement, due to limited capability to access publicly available data on this issue. As it is possible that InfluenceMap is not yet able to fully capture evidence of PTT's climate policy engagement activities, these scores should be considered provisional at this time.

In addition, PTT is a listed company with more than 50% of its shares owned by the government of Thailand. State-owned enterprises likely retain channels of direct and private engagement with government officials that InfluenceMap is unable to assess, and therefore are not represented in PTT's engagement intensity metric.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence.
