GC Group has a long-term business restructuring plan to become a low carbon business by adjusting the management process and investing in high value business (HVB), green chemicals, and recycled products, following the country’s Bio-Circular-Green Economy Model (BCG Model). GC’s goal is to increase investment in said business groups to 35% by 2030, for continued business growth under the reduced greenhouse gas emission rates initiative.
In addition, GC Group is always looking for emerging business while we are in the process of transition to low carbon business to create sustainable business growth.

Plastic Recycling Solutions
GC has partnered with ALPLA Company, a world-class manufacturer of high quality recycled plastic pellets to establish a joint venture company, ENVICCO Limited Company, to be the first to produce high quality food grade rPET and rHDPE plastic in Thailand. ENVICCO utilizes mechanical recycling technology to produce a variety of packaging and products. ENVICCO is also determined to seek and develop new technologies to add value to used plastics in more comprehensive and diverse ways. For example, ENVICCO has collaborated with Suranaree University of Technology (SUT) in a project to study the feasibility of adding value to contaminated plastic waste through chemical recycling technology. These plastics can be used as fuel or raw material in the chemical industry. ENVICCO also utilizes Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) channels to access cutting-edge technologies or innovations, such as Plasma Gasification or Plastic Composites, and use them to extend or strengthen the company's recycling business in the future, with the goal of creating added value for at least 75,000 tonnes of used plastic per year in 2025.
