Since 2014, GGGI has collaborated with the Royal Thai Government (RTG) to establish a strong green growth foundation for Thailand. In early 2016, Thailand, with the Cabinet’s approval, became a GGGI Member Country. GGGI Thailand Office is embedded in the Department of Climate Change and Environment under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. For more details about GGGI’s operation in Thailand, please see GGGI Thailand Country Planning Framework (CPF) 2022 - 2026.

Thailand intends to reduce its GHG emissions by up to 30% (unconditional) and 40% (conditional) from the projected BAU level by 2030.   This is in line with its long-term goal of carbon neutrality by 2050 and net-zero greenhouse gas emission by 2065. Further, under Thailand’s NDC Roadmap on Mitigation 2021-2030, the building sector, through energy efficiency measures in commercial and public buildings, contribute 1 million tCO2 reduction by 2030.  In its long-term LEDS submitted in 2021, Thailand emphasized supportive actions including increasing energy efficiency target measures such as Building Energy Codes, Energy Efficiency Resource Standards and ESCO business.

GGGI is implementing and International Climate Initiative (IKI) funded project titled “Asia Low-Carbon Building Transition (ALCBT)” to accelerate the attainment of those goals by mobilizing financing for low carbon buildings through addressing systemic and technical barriers in five Asian countries Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. The broad outputs of the project are as follows. 

  1. Technical and Institutional Tools: Standardized tools and systems for managing carbon emissions from building sector developed and piloted.
  2. Technical Capacity Building: Key industry stakeholders in project countries have enhanced capacity to deliver low carbon buildings.
  3. Financing: Financial pathways established to facilitate financing for occupants, owners, and developers of low carbon buildings.
  4. Replication and Scaling-up: Project knowledge documented and shared to facilitate replication and scaling up.


The Project will involve various target groups as the beneficiaries such as national and state/city governments, developers, building owners, suppliers, engineers and architects, financial services institutions (including ESCOs and banks), and academia and training institutes.

Therefore, GGGI-Thailand is looking for a Senior Project Associate (Green Building) to work in this 5-year project.


The Senior Project Associate will primarily be responsible for overall coordination and support in project management of the ALCBT program in Thailand as per the scope of work of the project.

Being a key member of the Project Management Unit (PMU) in Thailand, S/he will be responsible for overseeing the project deliverables, co-ordinate with government/ project stakeholders/consortium partners/consultants/peer team members, identify and report risks, ensure tangible project outcomes & visibility of GGGI, report to the Country Representative (CR) on any eventualities etc. S/he under the guidance of CR or Project Manager will also work on resource hiring and procurements for successful completion of the project. The officer will also support CR to engage with Thailand Project Steering Committee (PSC).

The above will require understanding basics of building energy efficiency, policy landscape, EE financing including ESCO mechanism pertaining to building sector in Thailand. It also requires skills of project management, effective coordination with clients/consultants, crisis management, collaboration with PMU at GGGI-HQ and strategic partnerships within Thailand. This position is required to bring the necessary subject expertise, networking skills, sense of client’s priorities, etc.
