“This partnership highlights our commitment to creating a better world for all. With our common goals, Double A will assist Prof. Kotler and WMS in promoting a better world through marketing”, said Mr. Thirawit Leetavorn, Double A Senior Executive Vice President.

With this initiative, Double A was presented with the Asian Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award for Poverty Alleviation in 2011.

Double A plants 390 million trees through Paper from KHAN-NA that absorb 6.7 million tons of carbon dioxide per year and utilizes all of its waste to produce steam and bio-mass energy for its mill. Double A’s model is an example of a unique approach for a business to live well with nature and the community.

According to Prof. Kotler, “Double A is a good paper that does good to the community and environment while doing well. Double A’s business model represents the future of marketing – one that sustains the community, economic growth and environmental balance while achieving a global brand status. Double A is a company that portrays how a business can live well with nature and create shared value with the community, all while being profitable.
