  • The company expects to save energy consumption of more than 13% when compared to energy used in 2019 – equivalent to more than 260 million baht.

Central Pattana plc, Thailand’s leading retail and real estate developer and operator of Central shopping centers, residential projects, office buildings and hotels across the country, is supporting government policies by taking part in saving energy for Thailand and our planet. To highlight its leading position in energy-saving shopping centers, Central Pattana has become the first shopping center developer in the country to initiate ‘Central's Energy Efficiency Master Plan 2022’, setting out urgent measures under the short-term plan with the concept of 'Innovative & Design Thinking', which will be in effect immediately at all 36 branches nationwide. It is expected that the plan will help save energy of more than 13% (when compared to electricity consumption in 2019), which is equivalent to more than 260 million baht. The company is moving forward to invest in the installation of energy-saving innovations and equipment in 2022 to reflect its outstanding cooperate identity of high energy-efficiency standards. This is to emphasize itself as a global sustainable organization following the ‘Net Zero 2050’ plan under the vision of ‘Imagining Better Futures for All’, striving to create a sustainable future for everyone.



Ms. Wallaya Chirathivat, President and CEO of Central Pattana, said: “Central Pattana is a developer of the areas of the future. At the same time, we care for our society and the environment by realizing the importance that all sectors join together to save energy for the nation and support the government's measures with a proactive and flexible energy-efficiency plan, which focuses on saving energy during weekdays (Monday-Friday). This period is considered the prime time of energy saving in the country by maintaining cool temperatures inside the shopping centers without affecting customer comfort and convenience. The urgent measures of Central Pattana’s ‘Energy Efficiency Master Plan 2022’ to save electricity in all shopping centers have been divided into four main sections as follows:

  1. Air-conditioning system reduce the usage time of the air-conditioning system according to the opening hours of the shopping centers and in accordance with the number of visitors by limiting the temperature to a level of 26.5-28˚ C with a relative humidity of 60-65%.
  2. Lighting
    • In the shopping center – cut down on switching on the lights early before the opening of the shopping center; switching off the lights earlier after the shopping center is closed (except restaurant and cinema zones – maintain 70% lighting until all customers leave).
    • Parking space – cut down on lighting during the day following the time period in line with the natural light conditions and cut down on the use of lighting in the parking areas that have no users (except for the parking spaces provided for cinema customers – maintain 50% lighting until all customers leave).
    • Around the building – switch on the lighting system around the buildings after 6:00 PM and minimize lighting after the shopping centers are closed to a level necessary for everyone's safety.
  3. Elevator and escalator systems – minimize the early activation of the systems before the opening of the shopping center. Deactivate the systems soon after the shopping center is closed.
  4. Reduce energy consumption within the company – reduce power consumption during lunch breaks, use stairs instead of elevators and choose energy-saving electrical equipment and lightbulbs, etc.


With regard to sustainable energy-saving plans that have been implemented continuously,  Central shopping centers continue to install solar rooftops and solar streetlights, and smart systems such as motion sensor switches for lighting systems as well as installing additional insulation and ceilings to reduce the heat entering the building, upgrading the chillers to high-efficiency chillers, improving the efficiency of pumps and piping systems for the cold water delivery of the air conditioning systems, replacing AHU and split-type air conditioning systems for improved efficiency, installation of air-conditioning temperature & humidity systems, additional installation and replacing motors with variable speed ​​drive (VSD) ones. Central Pattana has designed its shopping centers to use natural light as much as possible and increase the green areas throughout the projects as well as the development of 'eco-friendly malls', with high energy-efficiency standards. Previously, eleven projects of Central Pattana received the MEA Energy Award for energy-saving buildings from the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA), which comprise ten Central shopping centers and one office building. Central Pattana is also the only real estate company in Thailand that has been a member of the Global Sustainability Index, DJSI World for four consecutive years and DJSI Emerging Markets for eight consecutive years – guaranteeing our commitment to becoming a net-zero organization by 2050.

Central Pattana plc, is driving towards the future under the brand purpose of 'Imagining Better Futures for All' by creating and developing high-quality areas to care for people and communities as well as the environment to grow alongside economic progress for the sustainable growth of Thailand.
