Towards A Better Planet; Green Hope Social Initiative

Due to the rapid growth in the real estate industry, a large amount of construction waste is created each year. Sansiri has placed significant importance on the environment by recycling construction material that is ample at every construction site. Sansiri believes that the sustainable way to give back to society is to begin within its own organization.

Led by Mr. Wanchak Buranasiri, Chief Operating Officer of Sansiri, the Sansiri Design Solution Department (DSD) and its partners in the construction industry have joined hands to study how construction waste can be converted back and returned to a sustainable society. DSD is working with business partners in developing innovative ways to increase the value and to convert construction waste such as steel, wood, and brick into reusable materials. Over the period of 2 years, by using various design techniques, combined with new technology, “ECO-COLLECTION” was created. It is a collection of furniture and building material created from debris & construction waste.

Sansiri Social Change aims to help by promoting youth development and encourages the involvement of the community. Following the concept of recycling waste and creating a new function, the Green Hope project was launched. The “Green Hope” project is a 2-story library built from recycled construction waste. The library will be used as a creative learning center for children, as well as a community development center. The library is located in the Inudom Community in Soi Ramkhamhaeng 45, Nonthaburi. This community is in close proximity to many of Sansiri's projects. (Including the Saransiri Tiwanon-Chaengwattana 1 and 2, Setthasiri Chaengwattana-Prachachuen, Setthasiri Chaiyaphruek-Chaengwattana, Habitown Fold Tiwanon-Chaengwattana, The Base Chaengwattana, and etc.)

Inudom community consists of 140 children, ranging from the ages of 5-18, and 700 adults with a total of 152 households. Most people in the community are low income families that only desire for a better quality of life. Sansiri initiated the Green Hope learning center to get familiar with its surrounding communities by exploring and interviewing the local people to better understand their needs.

The construction of the Green Hope learning center was led by Mr. Manu Trakulwattanakit, Executive Vice President - Product Development Department (Low Rise). In a combined effort with Sansiri volunteers, local volunteers, and CreativeMove, the Green Hope Project was a huge success. The Sermkla Children’s Cornerstone Foundation, with the guidance of the Office of the Basic Education (Thailand Knowledge Park), also helped by donating books to the learning center. Sansiri is hoping that this project will be an example to both the public and private sectors on how being environmentally responsible brings a positive effect to our society.
