AIA Thailand united all employees, agents, customers, and business partners to plant 20,000 trees as part of the 9th AIA Sharing A Life Day of doing good deeds together. Under the concept of “Sharing Green Space”, the project aims to create green spaces and filter walls against dust and air pollution for Thai people to emphasize AIA’s commitment to promoting ‘Healthier, Longer, Better Lives’ while the project also aligns with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s One Million Trees Planting Campaign.
This year’s event was held simultaneously on 13 November 2022 in 9 public spaces nationwide including Bangkok where Mr. Chadchart Sittipunt, Bangkok Governor, joined the tree planting activity at Lumpini Park.
