Dow Chemical Thailand, in partnership with the Thailand Environment Institute Foundation and the Department of Industrial Promotion, Ministry of Industry, launched a ‘Sustainable Environment Management and Pollution Prevention Training Program’ for industries during 1-3 February 2012 from 8.30 am to 4 pm at the Department of Industrial Promotion. This is the first ‘train the trainer’ program that targets to educate representatives from private and public sectors to become potential trainers in each industrial target group. The instructors of this training course include specialists from leading universities and organizations who will share their knowledge in achieving sustainable development for industries through the use of an innovative concept called ‘Lean Management for Environment’.

The ‘Sustainable Environment Management and Pollution Prevention Training Program’ will consistently run from February 2012 to November 2012. Its aim is to provide free training courses on ‘cleaner production’ for academics and all personnel relevant to Environmental, Health, and Safety industries, including various manufacturers for over 2,000 people by the end of this year. The program will not only help expand knowledge on effective environmental management and sustainable pollution prevention to wider communities, but also help increase competiveness of the Thai industry in the global market under the Ministry of Industry's Green Industry Policy.

Mr. Vuttichai Tangam, Director, Bureau of Target Industries Development, Department of Industrial Promotion, Ministry of Industry, announced “The Sustainable Environment Management and Pollution Prevention Training Program’ is recognized as a proactive and important project for the long-term development of environmental management in Thailand’s industry sector. The program is also aligned with the Ministry of Industry’s Green Industry Policy, encouraging industrial entrepreneurs to move towards five green industry levels including; Green Commitment (1st level), Green Activity (2nd level), Green System (3rd level), Green Culture (4th level), and Green Network (5th level)”.

Mr. Vorapong Vorasuntharosoth, Government Affairs Leader for South East Asia/ Australia/ New Zealand Region, Dow Chemical Thailand, a major sponsor of the training program said “At Dow, we always pay the highest awareness to environmentally friendly operations for the industrial sectors. We are committed to bringing our global experience and share our best practices to help other industrial entrepreneurs gain more effective and more systematic approaches to environmental management and pollution prevention. This creates sustainable development for the whole industry sector, leading to our support of the ‘Sustainable Environment Management and Pollution Prevention Training Program’. This training program is also aligned with Dow’s 2015 sustainability goal which will pave the way to a good beginning for the Green Industry policy of the Ministry of Industry”.

Dr. Qwanruedee Chotichanathawewong, President of the Thailand Environment Institute, a co-developer of training curriculum added “The Thailand Environment Institute is an organization focusing on environmental issues and the conservation of natural resources at both policy level and in practice. Our institute has a number of specialists and network partners who can provide in-depth knowledge on cleaner production for industries, and I believe participants will definitely gain useful information from the training and can apply those ideas to the implementation of more sustainable environmental management for their businesses. I would like to take this opportunity to invite all relevant personnel to join this clean training program to help promote the Thai industry as a genuine green industry and help turn our country around to eventually become a low carbon society”.
