Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Together with Its Foundation Receive Honorary Certificate as Supporter of Environmental Conservation in Commemoration of 125th Anniversary of The Royal Forest Department, and commit to Driving its Environmental Efforts Forward
The awards were given to recognize Mitsubishi Motors Thailand and its foundation through the efforts in supporting people through forest conservation, educating communities in the management of resources and the environment, and developing public spaces for forestry education and recreation. The company and the foundation were selected for their recognition based on criteria set and approved by the selection board, presided over by Mr. Varawut Silpa-archa, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment.
Mr. Morikazu Chokki, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand and Chairman of Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Foundation, said, “We are proud and honored to be a part of societal efforts to contribute to the country’s environmental protection. We established the Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Foundation (MMTF) as part of our long-term commitment to contributing and growing with Thai society. Our dedication to being environmentally conscious is aligned with one of MMTF’s pillars, which are 1. Environment, 2. Health, and 3. Education and Morality. This award reflects our drive to develop Thailand’s automotive industry for sustainable economic growth.”
“To commemorate its 60th Anniversary, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand initiated a 60-rai reforestation project through a collaboration among 4 parties which are Mitsubishi Motors Thailand, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Foundation (MMTF), Royal Forestry Department (RFD) and Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO), a 20-rai forest was planted at Baan Angkrapong village, Bothong district (Chonburi province) and another 40-rai forest was planted at Baan Na-ngam village, Wattana Nakorn district (Sa Kaeo province). Local communities were actively engaged in the replantation and conservation of the forests to ensure inter-generational continuity of the management of forest abundance and distribution. The objectives of forest planting stem from our mission to be carbon neutral and aid in the fight against climate change, whilst also being good for the region as it can help in balancing and maintaining the regional water reservoir.”
Mitsubishi Motors Thailand fully supports the adoption and use of clean energy. This reforestation project is considered a part of the company’s initiatives for absorbing carbon dioxide from the air, in line with its solar rooftop panel installation at the production facility in Laem Chabang, Chonburi. The company also launched Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, the first Japanese Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle made in Thailand, in 2020. The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) by Mitsubishi Motors Corporation reports that PHEV is currently the most optimal powertrain option in terms of eco-friendliness when considering not only the tailpipe CO2 emission but the total CO2 emission through overall process from generating electricity and also vehicle production process.
