BLCP Power Plant’s Social Responsibility Program

Social responsibility actions under BLCP power plant, which is operated by Banpu Power’s joint venture BLCP Power Limited cover an extensive range of activities. Such endeavors include building a mutual understanding with the community and government agencies, and keeping related parties informed of the Plant’s business activities while collecting feedback on a quarterly basis. BLCP power plant’s social responsibility programs are focused on environmental responsibility and social and community development. Major activities in 2023 are as follows:

Educational Development

BLCP places importance on education as it is the key to the potential development of young people, who are a driving force of the development of society and the country. In 2023, BLCP continued its ‘BLCP Junior Guide’ project for the 16th consecutive year, collaborating with five schools in Rayong Province: Rayongwittayakom Nikom-Utsahakam School, Rayongwittayakom Paknam School, Watprapadoo School, Maptaputphanpittayakarn School, and Banchangkarnchanakul School. The project aimed to train students in effective communication, self-confidence, and problem-solving skills, which are crucial for shaping them into good future leaders.

Prioritizing expanding youth education, BLCP has sponsored the Vocational Electrical System Engineering Practice College (V-EsEPC) project at Maptaphut Technical College for fourth consecutive years with a total value of THB 0.5 million. Since 2020, BLCP has contributed THB 2 million to the project. Moreover, it also continued the “BLCP Scholarship” project for the 22nd consecutive year in order to promote education among underprivileged children in Maptaphut Town Municipality and groups of small-scale fishers in Rayong. In 2023, BLCP granted 40 scholarships to Rayongwittayakom Paknam School and Wat Paknam Municipal School, amounting to over THB 5 million, contributing to a cumulative project value of THB 26 million. BLCP has also initiated the project “Develop the Right Portfolio with BLCP” in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Rayongwittayakom School,

Rayong Province, to help students curate their works systematically and enhancing their chances of success in the initial round of the TCAS exam. In addition, BLCP has promoted students’ learning potential with integration to sustainable development in line with the national education reform plan according to the policies of the government and the Ministry of Education by organizing workshops for high school students, such as Programming Workshop, Green Warrior Workshop, and Young Entrepreneurs & Creative Marketing Workshop, etc.

Disaster Relief

In October 2023, BLCP delivered 50 packs of drinking water to the Khot Hin Mittraphap Community’s administration office, Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Building of Maptaphut Town Municipal Administration Office (Sai Thong Center). Its employees also volunteered to make sandbags to aid flood victims in Rayong Province.

Environmental Conservation

Since 2016, BLCP has consistently supported the community forest project. In 2023, BLCP organized a community forest project at Ban Nong Muang, Chum Saeng Sub-district, Wang Chan District, Rayong Province, covering 20 Rai of land to restore forests and foster the potential of community forests as carbon pools, as well as resources and sources of food for surrounding communities. Furthermore, for the 21st consecutive year, BLCP organized a project to release aquatic animals to increase marine and coastal resources in Rayong Province in order to increase the population of aquatic animals, maintain ecological balance, raise income for local fishermen, and foster community awareness of preserving aquatic resource and environment of the communities. Aquatic species released into the sea were 1,298,000 black tiger prawns, 19,000 sweet clams (spotted babylon), and 999 blue crabs from the breeding farm of the Ban Payoon Small Boat Fishery Group under the Local Small Boat Fishing Community Enterprise in Muang District and Ban Chang District, Rayong Province.
