Latest, AIS launches a new campaign, "AIS E-Waste, Dispose for Points" to thank customers for unitedly building an excellent environment by sorting and separating all 5 types of E-Waste: mobile phones/tablets, mobile batteries, chargers, headphones, and power banks, which can bring to the AIS shop near the residence to receive free AIS Points, 5 points per piece immediately.

Mr. Somchai Lertsutiwong, Chief Executive Officer AIS, said, “As a Digital Life Service Provider besides aiming to create a service that meets all consumers' lifestyles for all generations. We likewise focus on the role of corporate social responsibility in utilizing our capabilities and developing innovation to tackle climate change and environmental issues through an exact process of operations from inside to the partner organization, and including the device manufacturers to the purpose of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, which is a significant cause of long-term global warming. Electronic waste or E-Waste is another crucial factor that is increasing global warming, and if we do not deal it with the proper method, it will drop chemicals into land and water, which will cause a threat to life on earth."

According to The Global E-Waste Monitor 2020 by the United Nations University (UNU) estimates that the amount of E-Waste generated globally will reach 53.6 million metric tons in 2019 and will reach 74.7 million metric tons by 2030. Besides, Asia is the continent that composes the highest E-Waste, with over 24.9 million metric tons of total waste, among only 17.4 percent to dispose of them properly. Nevertheless, the remaining 82.6 percent are unable to keep track of it.

Mr. Somchai continued that “In the past, AIS has been committed to decreasing the impact of waste in our business operations on the environment, and also organized the“ THAIs Say No To E-Waste ”project to serve as the center for volunteering to take E-waste from Thais to dispose of them properly with the entire Zero Landfill process. However, from 2016 until now, AIS had taken away E-Waste generated by the network and business operations, including the pickup from Thais all over the country to dispose of them properly through processes that have received world-class standards, totaling more than 710 tons."

Recently, in committing to environmental care and to thank more than 41 million customers, we launched a new campaign, "AIS E-Waste, Dispose for Points", which joins the significant environmental mission with AIS by turning all E-Waste into AIS Points in 3 easy steps as follows:

  1. Bring 5 types of E-Waste: mobile phones/tablets, mobile batteries, chargers, headphones, and power banks to your local AIS shop.
  2. Notify staff that you desire to dispose of E-Waste.
  3. Drop the E-Waste into the box and scan the QR Code to receive AIS Points from the staff's tablet, which will immediately display the number of AIS Points received via the notification. Customers can check the AIS Point at the My AIS App.

Furthermore, 1 E-Waste is worth 5 points, and 1 number can receive AIS Points up to 10 points per day. This project period is from 1 September 2020 to 31 October 2020.

Moreover, it also highlights knowledge on how to properly dispose of E-Waste for safety according to international principles in 3 steps:

  1. Delete data and images from a phone or tablet (Format and Factory Reset).
  2. Always remove the memory card before dropping it.
  3. If a mobile phone/tablet, mobile battery, and power bank look abnormal such as blistering or discoloration. Please let it soak in water for about 5 hours to reduce the energy charge and put it in a bag or paper for wrapping before bringing it to dispose.

The THAIs Say No To E-Waste project has network partners across the country, including more than 52 organizations, whether the government sector, the private sector, and the public sector will raise awareness to create an accurate understanding and a strategic point for the disposing of E-waste, which has a total of over 2,000 spots across the country.

“E-waste is expected to increase every year if we remain silent and ignore and do not push to dispose of it properly. The consequences may be too late to cure. As a representative of AIS people, I require everyone to join the essential environmental mission by bringing E-Waste, such as mobile phones, tablets, mobile batteries, charging cables, headphones, or power banks, to dispose of them over 2,000 spots across the country." Mr. Somchai said at the end.
