The Awards recognizes successful companies and individuals in Asia across two main domains; leadership and sustainability. The awards value and recognize services and achievements of businesses, both large and small, national and international, for their esteemed contributions to their communities and the world.
Tetra Pak was recognised for two major initiatives in environmental responsibility and community care. The first is the company’s contribution to raising the awareness of the FSC™ label on beverage cartons and of its importance for environment protection, since the FSC Label guarantees that the paper used to make the carton has been sourced from responsibly managed forests. The second initiative is the “Green Roof Project for Friends in Need of (“PA”) Volunteers Foundation” – a project that encourages collection of used beverage cartons for recycling into roof sheets which are donated to people whose homes were damaged in natural disasters.
“It is a big honour to receive this award,” said Bert Jan Post, Managing Director, Tetra Pak Thailand. “At the core of Tetra Pak’s approach to sustainability is recognising that our future depends on our ability to provide safe and sustainable products, as well as a commitment to social responsibility. The ACES Awards shows that the company is on the right track with our commitments. Our team is thrilled and excited with this honour”
The ACES Awards is the brainchild of the MORS Group managed by a board of directors from diverse backgrounds, who facilitate and play a role in promoting Asia’s sustainable growth. “With so many products competing for consumers’ attention, it is getting harder and harder to stand out. To develop a unique, winning combination of product, packaging and marketing positioning, producers need to adapt to the changing retail landscape and appeal to today’s connected consumers. Tetra Pak Thailand have done this admirably, and have added economical, environmental and social benefits to their product offerings, making them good community citizens, and distinguished green advocates,” said Shanggari Balakrishnan, Chief Executive of MORS Group.
The Awards will be presented in Bangkok, Thailand over a Grand Gala Dinner on 20th of September 2019, at The Athenee Hotel.
