Recognizing that collaborative efforts are more effective, KKUIC and Marriott International (Thailand) have embarked on this partnership to leverage their combined strengths in pursuit of a significant positive environmental impact.

Their involvement emphasizes KKUIC’s commitment to environmental stewardship and positions the institution as a driving force behind innovative solutions for sustainable development in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this regard, the following significant issues were discussed:

  1. Sustainability Initiative Collaboration

The collaboration between KKUIC and Marriott International, focusing on sustainability initiatives, promises mutual benefits by amplifying KKUIC’s impact in the field of environmental stewardship and by enhancing its reputation as a responsible and proactive institution. This synergy not only contributes to environmental conservation but also fosters innovation, education, and awareness around sustainability, creating ripple effects that encourage other organizations to follow suit, thereby amplifying the positive impact on society and the planet.
