advancement of sustainability reporting in the capital market to meet the
increasing ESG demand of local and overseas investors continuously.
Significantly, SET supports the use of ESG information to develop business and
investment-related products and services in a sustainable manner, starting from

Data Platform currently in development process to be the data center of
ESG-related information. The reporting guideline will benefit stakeholders in
the industry in line with SET's vision: "To Make the Capital Market 'Work' for
Everyone"", added Pakorn.
