Samutprakan – 09 October 2014: Siam Daikin Sales Co., Ltd. in cooperation with Plant A Tree Today Foundation (PATT Foundation) is today planting 320 trees at Paked Nomklao Park, in SamutPrakan Province, as a statement of the company’s support for environmental conservation with its commitment to protecting the Earth’s ozone layer and reducing global warming.

While Daikin is determined to encourage the use of new generation air conditioners using the environmentally friendly R32 refrigerant that reduces CFC depletion of the ozone layer, the company is also supporting the planting of more trees because trees help absorb harmful carbon dioxide emissions and also helping to reduce the dangerous chemical substances that are in the atmosphere.

The company’s managing director, Bundit Srivallapanondh, is leading the Daikin team for the tree planting, which is part of the Daikin R32 Real Love environmental campaign.

Project Overview

The aim of the project is to reforest unproductive land within Phra Pradaeng that has little remaining original vegetation on it and is covered with weeds. Existing trees will remain but weeds and grasses are cleared to allow the planting of native tree species suitable to the local area to regenerate the soil, bring back a forest, and restore biodiversity to the area. The land is government-owned and dedicated to conservation. This land has a very special characteristic as it is situated within the community and is the nearest forest area to the city, lending itself to the nickname “the lungs of Bangkok”.
