Riverside hotels tackle pollution in Bangkok’s Chao Phraya river

The river clean-up project is an integral part of the BRMP’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and is designed to heighten awareness of the importance of maintaining a clean and healthy river amongst the 5,350 staff employed at BRMP member hotels as well as hotel guests and other stakeholders.

Employees from the eight member hotels of the Bangkok Riverside Marketing Partnership (BRMP) have taken part in a major clean-up exercise on the city’s Chao Phraya river with crucial support from the Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA).
 
The BMA’s Environment Department and its Solid Waste, Hazardous Waste and Night-soil Management Division provided 48 ‘yellow’ boats to enable hotel employees to access each hotel’s river frontage. 
 
After a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok, presided over by Khun Panasda Thongfark – Chief of the Solid Waste Sub-Division – and accompanied by General Managers from the eight member hotels, the clean-up teams tackled the waste, garbage and vegetation that had accumulated at each hotel’s river frontage.

At the conclusion of the river clean-up exercise the hotels’ General Managers met at the showroom of the Magnolia Waterfront Residences at ICONSIAM to discuss the results of this important CSR project. They also met with representatives of potential BRMP partners including Asiatique, ICONSIAM and River City as well as the Thailand Incentive and Convention Association
