Greening Supply Chains in the Thai Auto and Automotive Parts Industries
Promoting SCP to the supply chains in the Thai automotive sector

The Challenge

Exporting cars to international markets requires the industry to also adopt international standards along the supply chain to keep quality and price competitive. While Thailand has an adequate lowskilled labor force, it faces an acute shortage of highly skilled automotive engineers. Additionally, suppliers lack process and product engineering capabilities and innovation capacity to increase productivity and environmental performance in the automotive cluster in Thailand.

The Objectives

The project aimed at improving productivity and environmental performance of Thai auto and automotive parts production. It also aimed at enhancing networks, business and financial services for greening of the industry. Furthermore, it aimed at disseminating good practices and promoting the development and implementation of related policy and economic instruments.

The Way Forward

  • Improving SMEs’ Productivity and Environmental Performance
  • Creating SME-specific Financial Support Packages
  • Strengthening SCP-related Services and Networking
  • Developing Showcases and Policy Recommendations
  • Forming Service Hubs and Multipliers
  • Establishing Supply Chains and Creating New Markets
  • Promoting Green Public Procurement
  • Stimulating Green Loans
Duration:
2/2012 – 1/2015
Total Budget:
EUR 2,020,000 (EU Contribution: 80%)
