The performance of Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) has continued to be heavily affected by various circumstances and events during the past year, including the economic slowdown, intense competition, climate change, spread of disease, especially the Ebola virus, as well as political and social instability. THAI was therefore unable to reach its performance target. In response to this situation, every unit within THAI worked together to develop possible solutions. Different measures and strategies were introduced to tackle the problems.
The THAI Strategy and Transformation Committee was established comprising Board members and external specialists who are highly experienced in the transformation of large organizations. The Committee and THAI Management joined together to create THAI’s Transformation Plan to accommodate the business structure and necessary changes as a result of the crisis situation. All of these changes are to ensure that THAI, the national flag carrier, will soon reposition itself as the pride of the nation.
Despite all the changes and crises, THAI fully recognizes the importance of corporate social responsibility which is incorporated into every process of the business operations as part of the corporate performance indicator driving THAI towards sustainable business development that is accepted at international level.
On behalf of the THAI Management I am pleased to see that THAI has produced this Sustainable Development Report this year, which provides detailed information on our social responsibility to our stakeholders. This is the first year that this report is published within the framework of GRI Standard G4 which has been developed from G3.1.
