AEON chairman awarded “For the cause of Hanoi” title

Aeon, Japan’s leading retail developer, is pursuing peace and contributing to local communities, while remaining respectful of humanity and looking at the customer’s point of view. For this reason, AEON Group has carried out various corporate social responsibility activities throughout many countries, including Vietnam.

The “For the cause of Hanoi” title is granted annually for Vietnamese and foreign citizens who have been continuously contributing to the development of Hanoi.

Since its establishment in Vietnam in 2009, Aeon Group has carried out many CSR activities that contributed to lives of local people and communities, such as tree plantation, school construction support project, teenage ambassadors programme, Aeon scholarship for excellent students, and environmental protection programmes, among others.

In particular, Aeon Group has planted 75,000 trees in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue, 15,000 trees at Ba Vi National Forest, and recently 200 Japanese cherry blossom trees at Hoa Binh Park with the hope that everyone could enjoy the beautiful sight of cherry blossoms in Vietnam. This is 90,200 trees in total and the number is expected to increase in the coming years.

Despite the fact that cherry blossoms are very hard to grow in Vietnam, to make the wish come true, Iwamura Yasutsugu,  general director of Aeon Mall Vietnam, said that he had studied the weather and land in Vietnam extensively and had been continuously searching for suppliers that can provide good-quality trees to grow.

Iwamura also said that he hopes the community could join hands to take good care of the trees.

“In 5-10 years, we might have the chance to see Hoa Binh Park filled up with bright cherry blossom petals,” he said.
