1 min read | august 11, 2023

The Caltex Srinakarin service station in Bangkok is the first of its kind in Thailand to attain the country’s highest “green” certification.

A service station in Thailand is going platinum for its best-in-class commitment to sustainability. Located in Bangkok, the Caltex Srinakarin service station is the first in the country to be named a Platinum Level Green Building by the Thailand Rating of Energy and Environmental Sustainability (TREES).

This is the highest accreditation developed by the Thai Green Building Institute (TGBI), a green-building certification group.

by the numbers

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

green innovation

These combined efforts helped the station reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 28,145 kilograms (roughly 31 tons) each year since 2021.

why it matters

“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.

“Creating a model station like this that is better for the environment enables us to hold our heads high and lean into the energy transition conversation.”
