Sustainability and Impact Lead - PALO IT Thailand
Patchareeboon Mam's Introduction

Patchareeboon Mam has more than 16 years of experience on international development and sustainability projects, especially relating to business and human rights and corporate sustainability

What brought you to sustainability?

With my human rights and international development background, I had incredible opportunities to work on several public-private sector partnerships with great success and impact. Thus, I wanted to continue and leverage the private sectors' ability to create positive impact to society and environment through corporate sustainability.

Which sustainable actions are you in charge of or have you implemented in your organisation?

I am the Sustainability and Impact Lead for PALO IT Thailand. We are in the process of obtaining a B Corp certification and integrating sustainable IT into our practice. B Corp certification involves a thorough evaluation of how a company's practices impact its workers, community, environment, and customer and it requires detailed reporting on various aspects like carbon footprint, governance, diversity, employee benefits, data handling, and supply chain practices.

I'm also facilitating Climate Fresk and training sessions for our staff and client related to sustainability.

Previously, I conducted Masterclass trainings for the United Nations and PwC Thailand relating to 'business and human rights' and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights too.

Which challenges did you meet and how did you overcome them?

Working in 'sustainability' and/or 'development' can seem overwhelming and there's a never ending list of challenges. I recognize now through the years that the key is on building your own resilience and well-being too.  It's important to stay focus, practical, and maintain our optimism in order to continue. Giving up doesn't help anything.

What are you most proud of?

There are many 'most proud of' moments but it's really generating positive impact for people, society, and the world through my career in different ways.
