Impact Muang Thong Thani has launched Ride for Longer Life initiative, designed to encourage all employees to ride bicycles to work instead of driving.

The goal is to lower fuel consumption which in turn reduces pollution and benefits worker health as well.

To support the campaign, Impact has allocated funds to construct bicycle parking lots and lanes. Impact envisions expanding Ride for Longer Life to other companies under the management of Bangkok Land Co., Ltd. and Muang Thong Thani Society to further decrease traffic and pollution.

Ms. Kunwadee Jintavorn, Executive Director of Impact Exhibition Management Co,. Ltd., the owner of Impact Exhibition and Convention Center or Impact Muang Thong Thani said that since being awarded the ISO50001: 2011 certificate from the International Organization for Standardization on 9 September 2011, Impact has conducted all business operations according to this energy management standard.

Impact has created a plan to lower energy use under the theme I AM 3R. The letter I stands for Incite for promoting an eco-friendly environment, A for Avoiding unsustainable methods, material and equipment, M for Modifying our behavior, and 3R for Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

In support of the plan, Impact has replaced plastic water bottles with pitchers and glasses in meeting rooms, lowered water consumption by using water from Muang Thong Thani lake for watering trees and replaced manual facets with automatic ones that conserve 25% more water.

 To reduce fuel consumption, Impact provides free shuttle buses for visitors and employees inside Impact. Impact recently launched a campaign for employees who live near to ride bicycles to work and as the main vehicle for transportation within Impact.

Impact organizes training workshops to support its energy management initiatives. One past session focused on creating environmentally conscious workers and instilling energy-saving behaviors. Mr. Amornsak Rangsakorn, Director of Energy Management Practical Training Group from Bureau of Energy Human Resource Development, was the main speaker. The goal was to educate employees on energy savings practices and create sustainable behaviors within Impact.
