Mitsubishi Motors Thailand awarded as one of Thailand’s community forest supporters from the Royal Forest Department
BANGKOK – June 22, 2022: Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Foundation (MMTF), led by Mr. Egathi Rattana-Aree, Executive Vice President, Human Resources & General Administration Unit and Vice Chairman of MMTF, received the 'Community Forest Support' award from Mr. Yutthaphon Ankinandana, an adviser to Natural Resources and Environment Minister, for the company's contribution to promote community forest development in Thailand. The activities enable the Thai government to meet its goal of expanding forest land to 55 percent by 2037 as part of the 20-year national strategy plan. It also supports CO2 Neutrality goal of Thailand.
The award was given Mitsubishi Motors Thailand and MMTF for their strong support. The "60 Years 60 Rai Reforestation" Project, in 2021, was to commemorate Mitsubishi Motors' 60th anniversary in Thailand and to confirm its commitment to Thailand’s sustainable environment as one of three major areas of its Corporate Social Responsibility namely, Environment, Health, and Education, under the aspiration of “contributing and growing with the Thai society”. Such a 60 years 60 Rai Reforestation Project was completed 20 Rai in Ban Ang Krapong Community Forest, Chonburi Province, and completed 40 Rai in Ban Na Ngam Community Forest, Sa Kaeo Province.
Community forest development is recognized as an important approach to sustain forest management because it prioritizes the quality of life for those who rely on forest resources while reducing poverty and safeguarding forest areas. Other benefits of community forest management include non-timber forest products, watershed protection, carbon storage, spiritual and cultural significance, and wildlife habitat.
Last year, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand and MMTF also received the Honorary Certificate as Supporter of Environmental Conservation for their community forest promotion in commemoration the Royal Forest Department's 125th anniversary. Its green initiatives at Laem Chabang factory in Chonburi province resulted in the Ministry of Industry awarding them the Green Industry Level 4 certificate, demonstrating their commitment to contribute to Thai society through environmental preservation while promoting the growth of the automotive industry in Thailand. Mitsubishi Motors Thailand will continue promoting the activities of planting forest for more years to come to sustain Thailand’s environment.
