Economically: Two key targets of working with over 80 partners in 2020 are:1. Creating products and services with digital innovation and the AIS 5G network to upgrade Thais’ quality of life2. Promoting potential of the business sector, and developing systems to prevent cyber threats and protect customers’ personal data to a credible standard

In 2020, these operations were able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 75,590 tons of CO2 equivalent.

In 2020 the company installed solar panels at 2,747 base stations, as well as 4 data centers and mobile switching center.These renewable energy sources were able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3,503 tons of CO2 equivalent in 2020.

Today the company has collected over 234,463 pieces of E-waste in collaboration with partners to set up over 2,400 drop-off points nationwide.

“Our being chosen as a member of Dow Jones’ Sustainability Indices this year, including both the DJSI World Index and DJSI Emerging Markets Index, is a source of motivation for us and another confirmation of AIS teams’ dedication to creating sustainable growth and resilience of digital infrastructure for the Thai people. AIS has applied DJSI principles of evaluation as part of our operations plans. This has enabled us tomanage our organization sustainably in the interests of every group of stakeholders, and aligned with international standards. In the end, this also benefits the country overall,” concluded Somchai.
