Zeroboard CEO Tokeiji to speak at “Rock Thailand #4,” an event hosted by the Embassy of Japan in Thailand and co-sponsored by a Thai conglomerate
～Building an ecosystem in ASEAN region for decarbonization with Thai conglomerates～
CEO Michiktaka Tokeiji of Zeroboard, Inc. (Minato-ku, Tokyo, “the Company”), a developer and provider of zeroboard , a cloud service to calculate and visualize GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions, spoke at Rock Thailand #4 (held in Bangkok), an event hosted by the Embassy of Japan in Thailand and JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), co-hosted by CP Group, a Thai conglomerate, on Wednesday, November 16, 2022.
Rock Thailand #4 is an event under the theme of BCG (Bio-Circular-Green) Economy, presented by Thailand who held the presidency at APEC 2022 – “Open. Connect. Balance.” Through this event, it realizes the strategy of Japanese government, the development of co-creation projects between Japan and Thailand based on Japan’s future investment initiatives (1) for Asia, and the promotion of the Asia Zero Emission Community (AZEC) concept (2), a framework for international cooperation under the GX.
The event started with a speech by Yasunori Nishimura, Minister of METI, followed by speeches by Japanese startups and matchmaking with Thai conglomerates and other companies. The Company was selected as one of the Japanese startup speakers, and our CEO Tokeiji gave a presentation on our strategy to support decarbonization in ASEAN region. The event was a great success, since we had a lot of takeaways while exchanging views with many Thai conglomerates on future collaboration plans. Having this event as a start, we want to continue building the relationship and hope to develop co-creation projects between Japan and Thailand in the decarbonization field.
