Return Bottle Project
Singha Estate is committed to promoting sustainable plastic packaging usage under the “Circular Economy” concept. This idea led to the installation of two Reversed Vending Machines (RVMs) that support the recycling of used clear PET plastic bottles. The RVMs have been installed at two sites: THE ESSE Sukhumvit 36 and THE ESSE at SINGHA COMPLEX.

Minimizing food waste as much as possible
The company is actively working to minimize food waste, aligning with its goals to reduce food waste and food loss in production and promote food sustainability. Unavoidable food waste, like fish bones, animal scraps, and fruit peels, will be repurposed for beneficial uses like EM solutions or compost. For avoidable food waste, the company is focusing on reducing the amount of food waste generated per person.
