PTT is committed to conducting its business with integrity, transparency, fairness and in accordance with the corporate governance principles while complying with applicable laws, rules, and regulations, both domestically and internationally, and not tolerating fraud and corruption of all forms, whether directly or indirectly. Therefore, PTT requires its directors, executives, employees, contractors, as well as other persons working for the benefits of PTT, or on behalf of PTT, to strictly comply with PTT's Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy.
The Corporate Governance and Sustainability Committee (CGSC) assumes responsibilities to deliver policies and guidelines for good corporate governance, operational risk management and internal control, compliance with laws, rules, organizational regulations, anti-fraud and corruption, and receiving complaints and whistleblowing, including supervision and follow up on operations to ensure that the management has placed their attention to anti-fraud and corruption, and strictly complies with anti-fraud and corruption measures.

The plans were approved by the Corporate Governance Committee and PTT’s Board of Directors for further implementations, practices, and operations.
PTT announces PTT's Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy and No Gift Policy. It has developed systems, mechanisms, and measures to supervise the performance of personnel while also creating an atmosphere and ensuring the environment of business integrity and ethics, in accordance with the corporate governance principles, and not tolerating corruptions of all forms, whether directly or indirectly. PTT emphasizes on concretely raising awareness of employees at all levels, from directors, executives, employees to related persons and continues to operate PTT's Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy, which covers the following areas:
- Corruption (Fraud) refers to any action to seek unlawful benefits for oneself or others. This includes actions such as:
Asset misappropriation: To possess property that belongs to others, or which is also owned by others, and to fraudulently misappropriate that property for one's own or for a third person.
Embezzlement: To fraudulently deceive others by displaying false statements or concealing facts that should have been disclosed. By such embezzlement, one can obtain property from the deceived person or a third party, or cause the deceived person or any third party to make, withdraw, or destroy any rights document.
Financial statement fraud: To mislead accounting amounts by exploiting gaps of the accounting principles and alternative measurement and accounting disclosures to modify the information in the financial statements as desired for a wrongful purpose.
- Corruption: To demand, accept or agree to accept, give, ask to give, or offer/pledge/promise to give assets or other benefits to government officials, government agency, officials of private agencies, private agencies so that such persons or entities exercise their existing powers to act, not to act, to expedite or delay any action, which conflicts with their powers and duties and is to obtain unlawful benefits, whether for oneself or others, or maintain business or any other benefits that are inappropriate for business, except for the cases where laws, customs, and traditions allow to do so.
- PTT personnel refers to directors, executives and employees at all levels of PTT.
- Persons related to PTT refers to employees, representatives, consultants, affiliates or any person acting for or on behalf of PTT, whether or not they have the authority to do so.
In addition, PTT is a politically neutral organization. There is no policy to support any political party, whether financially or non-financially. It is transparent with respect to charitable donation and sponsorship, as specified in anti-fraud and corruption measures, namely defining and reviewing anti-fraud and corruption policies, assessing related performance results, risk management and internal control process review, to adequately prevent fraud and corruptions with consistent communications to different groups of stakeholders, including employees and suppliers, through annual supplier seminars. This is to prevent potential corruptions within the organization and to strengthen trust of third parties in the transparency of PTT’s operations.
PTT strives to upgrade itself to become a trusted company in order to support PTT's operations and business expansion that requires rapid response to changes while also adhering to transparent operations under good corporate governance, risk management, anti-fraud and corruption, adequate internal control, and compliance with laws and regulations (Governance Risk and Compliance: GRC). Therefore, a third party screening program was provided to establish standards for assessing qualifications of the parties engaging in transactions with PTT to ensure that they are concise and appropriate with an effective risk management and internal control system in place. In 2022 , the Company were open for opinions from relevant entities to drive the auditing process of third-party transaction transparency to cover all processes that involve PTT and implemented criteria and reviews of qualifications of those engaging in transactions with PTT and also started to develop a database system to audit transparency, serving as a center for information necessary for risk assessment. This will help such operations be efficient, convenient and timely.
PTT has been certified as a member of the Thai Private Sector Collective Action against Corruption (CAC) for the third consecutive years, with 2014 being the first year it became a CAC member. This confirms that PTT has been recognized by an external agency for its potential in operating a transparent and verifiable business with a commitment to rejecting corruptions of all forms. At present, PTT aims to encourage its business partners, suppliers and distributors, etc., to participate in this certification program in order to eliminate potential risks of corruptions throughout the supply chain.
Fraud and corruption risk assessment
PTT has prepared a fraud and corruption risk management handbook since 2017, which was approved by PTT Management Committee (PTTMC), and requires annual reviews to ensure that it is in line with the business and related criteria. This handbook is to supplement the fraud and corruption risk assessment at the process level in order to reduce the likelihood and severity of impacts possibly caused to the Company from such risks of fraud and corruption, and corresponds to internal control measures suitable for juristic persons to prevent state official bribery prescribed by the NACC according to Section 176 of the Organic Act on Anti-Corruption, B.E. 2564 (A.D. 2021), and best practices according to the PTT's Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy in part of fraud and corruption risk assessment in workplace so that internal control measures can be suitably planned.
Since 2017, PTT has conducted fraud and corruption risk assessments, and in 2019, it scoped the assessments to cover the entire organization through the GRC-guided internal control assessment.
In 2022, a fraud and corruption risk assessment was conducted involving department-level functions and direct subordinates totaling 145 departments. The assessment started from defining processes at the department or the direct subordinate level, divided into Core Process, based on roles and responsibilities, and Support Process, which is required from all functions.
It was found that the control score based on the Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy (Fraud Risk) was equivalent to 3.99 (out of 4). There are 4 processes prone to very high risks, namely corporate governance and organization leadership, implementation of business law, legal administration and accounting management. Overall, the score demonstrates adequate control while internal control measures are always observed.
Training, communications about anti-fraud and corruption
PTT places importance on enhancing knowledge and understanding of directors, executives and employees on anti-fraud and corruption through different training courses such as training and communications on good corporate governance and anti-corruption topics, to name a few, for executives and employees, e.g., COSO - Fraud Risk Management course, Qualification Criteria and Examination for Transactional Relationship with PTT course, and the Good Corporate Governance and Anti-Fraud and Corruption course, during orientation sessions or for the TBU Pre-Career, etc. This is to suitably cascade knowledge and shape the practices related to good corporate governance, ethics and code of conduct in business operations, as well as best practices against fraud and corruption.
PTT provides e-learning courses to encourage employees to study, understand the corporate governance principles, business ethics and best practices in anti-fraud and corruption so that they can adopt them for their daily practices. There are three courses in total, namely 1) CG and Anti-Fraud and Corruption e-Learning, the content of which is consistent with the fifth version of CG Handbook, covering the required good practices, e.g., prevention of the use of insider information, prevention of conflicts of interest and anti-fraud and corruption, etc.; 2 ) Conflict of Interest course; and 3) Introduction to the Organic Act on the Prevention and Suppression of Corruption, B.E. 2561 (A.D. 2018). In 2022, PTT required all employees to study and set them as one of corporate KPIs, in part of the non-compliance section. There were 95.16%, 93.93% and 93.90% of employees participating in the training, respectively.

Major reviews and improvements in the previous year
PTT requires a review of the Corporate Governance Policy, PTT and PTT Group's Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy, CG Handbook, and Fraud and Corruption Risk Management Handbook on an annual basis. In 2022, PTT has reviewed the Corporate Governance Policy, PTT and PTT Group's Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy and found that the contents of the three policies are still up to date and comply with relevant laws, rules, regulations, criteria, and best practices, both at the national and international levels. It has reviewed the CG Handbook to ensure its compliance with amendments to laws, rules, regulations, and best practices while also reviewing and improving the Fraud and Corruption Risk Management Handbook to correspond to the corporate risk assessment criteria.
Directors, executives and employees at all levels complete a PTT conflict of interest disclosure form annually, and every time a transaction that potentially involves a conflict of interest or is prone to potential risks is detected, and notify their superiors for further determination of measures and corrective actions as deemed appropriate; for instance, impose temporary measures whereby the conflicting employee refrains from performing such duties or is rotated to other functions to reduce potential risks, etc.
In addition, PTT has also analyzed the reports of conflicts of interest in conjunction with the Procure-to-Pay using the Continuous Control Monitoring and Auditing System (CCMS) to monitor transactions that may involve significant conflicts. Based on the analysis to address potentially risky transactions by the CCSM of 2022, no significant conflict of interest is found.
Employees’ conflict of interest disclosure (Percentage)
Statutory ComplianceGRI 2-26, 2-27
PTT locates a great focus on conducting the business properly in compliance with rules and regulations, be they legislative provisions or PTT’s internal rules and regulations. It assigned the “Legal and Compliance Department” to assume a responsibility of serving as the center that regulates performance of PTT’s personnel and functions to ensure that they engage in a business compliant with laws, rules, regulations, orders, and announcements related to PTT's business. PTT has collaborated with the 2nd Line Alliances in monitoring the compliance with laws and regulations that are related to each specific 2nd Line Alliance as well as rendering advice, support, monitoring and reviewing performance of the 1st Line to ensure that PTT’s business operations are correct and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
To operate compliant businesses, PTT stipulated a Compliance Policy and a Compliance Framework, which are to be observed by PTT people in their daily work as a guide to ensure that they comply with laws and regulations specifically associated with their tasks. In case of doubt, employees can seek advice from a support department that is directly related to such matters, e.g., Legal Office, or Legal and Corporate Compliance Department, or 2nd Line Alliances.
In addition, PTT has a goal of being an organization of zero non-compliance. It requires the annual corporate KPIs must include one that addresses compliance practices, namely Corporate KPI: Non-compliance, which shall be measured based on zero complaints (lodged internally or externally) on significant errors, which indicate fraudulent, malpractice, misconduct, serious disciplinary offense, and non-compliant actions that a regulator has a final punishment order or issues a written offense notice. Moreover, it requires an additional measurement on the learning outcomes of executives and employees where they have to complete three training courses of CG, Compliance and Ethics including (1) CG e-Learning; (2) Introduction to the Organic Act on the Prevention and Suppression of Corruption; and (3) Conflicts of Interest.
Compliance monitoring and assessment process and supporting mechanisms
PTT conducts compliance assessments through the GRC Assessment – risk review, assessment, and internal control, whereby all functions shall carry out a self-assessment to obtain a result for further analysis and planning, or advice is rendered to the functions in order to mitigate non-compliance risks.
Furthermore, PTT has a non-compliance management process by assigning related functions to document non-compliant incidents that have occurred or are under their responsibilities and report such incidents to the Legal and Compliance Department for the purpose of analyzing the root causes, monitoring improvements of operational processes, and further jointly planning to prevent any recurrence. There are also channels to report non-compliant incidents online, either through the website of the Legal Office, or by email to email@example.com. Once a non-compliance case is accepted and analyzed, an overall summary shall be prepared and reported to the Governance, Risk and Compliance Management Committee (GRCMC) and further forwarded to Corporate Governance and Sustainability Committee (CGSC), respectively, on a quarterly basis.
However, in 2022, there was no non-compliance incident that significantly affected or initiated legal liability to PTT being found.
Promotion of awareness and culture
PTT regularly promotes a compliance culture among its personnel by organizing training sessions to cascade legal knowledge and communicate information about laws and regulations related to PTT's businesses in various forms, including e-mail, internal communications, and e-learning. Besides, it also promotes and encourages the compliance culture through Tone from the Top where senior executives take part in enhancing a healthy compliance atmosphere by communicating via video clips or conveying key messages to employees.
Compliance support mechanisms/ channels
In case of doubt or uncertainty about compliance within PTT, each function or employee can seek advice or send their concern to the Legal Office, or the Legal and Compliance Department, or the 2nd Line Alliances within PTT that is directly related to the matter.
