GC develops products for sustainability purpose by focusing on environmental-friendly and health-friendly products that safe for consumer, including development of low-carbon products such as High-Performance Products, Bio-Based Products, and Recycled & Upcycled Products.

The example of High Performance Products include

Low-Carbon Products

GC has continuously developed various low-carbon products in order to initiate environmentally friendly products or services reduce greenhouse gas emissions compares to other products (goods or services) in a similar functions throughout the product life cycle, including raw material acquisition, production process, distribution, use and end-of-life management. GC classified low carbon products and services that enable a third party to avoid GHG emissions and environmental impacts as follows

Type Group of Products / services % of Total Revenues from Products Estimated total avoided emissions per year
Low Carbon Products
  • Electricity and steam from cogeneration plant which help increase resource efficiency and reduce GHG emissions, compared to conventional power plant.
  • Carbon Capture, which relies on using CO2 to as a raw material for Sodium Bicarbonate
  • 156 Carbon Footprint of Products (CFP) certified by TGO which emits GHG emissions lower than other products in cradle to gate stages
  • 86 Carbon Footprint Reduction (CFR) certified by TGO that reduce lower GHG emissions in cradle to gate stages.
  • Polylactic Acid (PLA) made from renewable that is used in raw material acquisition stage.
88% 3,704,356
Avoided Emissions Products
  • Bio-methyl Ester (BME) and biodiesel products, which are made from renewable raw materials and reduce GHG emissions from engine combustion in client’s use phase more than 100% diesel (fossil fuel) products.
2% 428,786

GC has developed the ‘GC Compostable Label’ to create consumer awareness to the products that were produced from biodegradable materials. By using the compostable label to indicate that the products were produced from biodegradable plastic pellets into biomass water and carbon dioxide, the products will not leave any residue to the environment. This will enable producers to deliver product that will meet the market’s needs while being supportive to the government’s policies in reduce environmental problems and global warming.

GC Compostable Label

Morover, GC has requested for a certification of environmental-friendly product base on ISO 14025 type II standard from GREEN FOR LIFE. GC has certified 78 products grades, including High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), Polystyrene: PS, the Ethylene Oxide (EO), Ethylene Glycol (EG), Ethanolamine (EA) and Green Chemicals,for communicating to customers about the environmental characterisitic of products.
