Banpu Power and SDGs
Banpu Power has established the performance targets aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as follows:
|The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)||Banpu Power’s Targets|
|7.1 By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services.
7.2 By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
7.3 By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.
|• Achieve the power generating capacity target of 5,300 Megawatts (MW) comprising of 4,500 Megawatt equivalent (MWe) from the thermal power generation and 800 Megawatts (MW) from the renewable power generation by the year 2025.
• Reduce energy consumption intensity by not more than 1.72 Gigajoule (GJ)/ Megawatt hour (MWh).
|12.2 By 2030, achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources.||• Reduce water consumption intensity by not more than 1.103 Cubic meter (m3)/ Megawatt hour (MWh).|
|8.8 Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers, in particular women migrants, and those in precarious employment.||• Achieve zero fatality and zero lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR).|
|16.5 Substantially reduce corruption and bribery in all their forms.|| • Achieve zero incident involving non-compliance, corporate governance and corruption. If there are significant complaints, they must be investigated and resolved in appropriate timeframe.
• Be certified as a member of the Collective Action Coalition Against Corruption (CAC).
• Implement a risk management system covering all business entities.
|9.4 By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities.|| • Reduce air emissions intensity of the conventional power plants for ultra-low emissions.
o Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) < 76.6 Gram(g)/ Megawatt hour (MWh)
o Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) < 118.4 Gram(g)/ Megawatt hour (MWh)
o Particulate Matters (PM) < 23.0 Gram(g)/ Megawatt hour (MWh)
• Achieve 100% compliance in social and environmental laws and regulations.
|13.1 Strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries.
13.3 Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning
| • Reduce GHG emissions intensity per unit of product by 15% compared to the 2012 baseline that is not more than 0.0562 tonnes Carbon Dioxide equivalent (CO2e)/ Megawatt hour (MWh), to respond to the global GHG reduction target of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
• Establish business continuity management target for crisis situation including climate change events.
