MISSION GREEN 2020: An E-Waste Project
Recently, more Thai people have paid attention to waste segregation and waste hazard to reduce improper discard and disposal. Electronic waste is vast and very close to us, yet few people are aware of its danger. Improper discard on electronic waste can affect environment and community in long run.
As a digital-life service provider involving in electronic devices, AIS is committed to educating people on the impacts of improper discard and disposal of electronic waste. Together with our partners, AIS will introduce proper E-Waste process to reduce electronic waste and save our environment. Anyone wanting to discard broken earphone, AC adapter, Bluetooth, power bank, or used mobile phone can drop it at E-Waste bins located at AIS shop and in shopping centers under Central Group management. All E-Waste items will be properly disposed using Zero Landfill process (waste disposal in which usable parts can be recycled). Soon, AIS will distribute E-Waste bins to universities across Thailand.
AIS E-Waste bin is made of recycled plywood designed by a team of students at Architecture Faculty, Rangsit University. In collaboration with AIAP (AIS Internet of Things Alliance Program), the E-Waste bin is capable of counting rubbish piece by piece in real-time and display CO2 conversion and reduction via www.ewastethailand.com
Starting October 1, AIS E-Waste bins will be available at 81 locations including AIS shops (in Bangkok and surrounding areas, and major cities across the country), and shopping centers under Central Group. More AIS E-Waste bins will be placed in leading universities soon. For more convenience, AIS is conducting logistic study to pick up E-Waste at homes and deliver them to partners specializing in waste disposal. Allowance earned from E-Waste will be donated to charities. E-Waste statistics can be viewed at www.ewastethailand.com.
Looking into customer services to be more environmentally friendly, AIS is switching from plastic drinking bottles to paper cup and water dispenser. AIS management has provided an educational program on environmental conservation for AIS employees and asked for their cooperation to adapt their lifestyles to protect the environment. Our goal is to reduce one million kgCO2e of CO2 and process 100,000 pieces of E-Waste by 2020.
