10 Million Tree Celebration.
We gathered on 15th Sep 2013, at AEON Vietnam Co. Ltd Office, to celebrate the 10 million – tree – campaign, which was directed by the Honorable Chairman Takuya Okada, the Founder of AEON Environmental Foundation. AEON’s first domestic tree planting festival was held in 1992 in Mie Prefecture. The seedlings that were planed back then have grown as tall as adults. After this moment, we continue promoting AEON shopping centers surrounded by green by planting tree seedlings one by one domestically and internationally.Via AEON Tree Planting program, we encourage local residents in the greenery of their communities. This is something only AEON can do more effectively than other companies in other industries, thanks to AEON’s wide Shopping Center networks and chains. The tree planting activities are carried out under AEON’s basic philosophy and principles: PEACE – PEOPLE – COMMUNITIES.
Many living things of communities including the Earth and Environmental have been destroyed for the richer and convenient live of human kinds via history. AEON is a corporate routed in local community life and dedicated to making a contribution to the communities, so we perform to restore, fix and create the environmental little by little. Together with customers, we hope, we get back forests day after day via the program namely “AEON Home Town Forrest”.In Vietnam, although we have yet put our new store into operation, we have planted 34 ha of the forest in Lang Co Bay, Thua Thien Hue Province within 2010-2012. Furthermore, we are going to have the official Tree Planting Day, namely “AEON Hometown Forest” on 24th Nov 2013, at AEON MALL – Tan Phu Celadon.
