We also installed solar panels on the roof of our factories and have started utilizing solar energy with our vehicle manufacturing processes with the aim to reduce more than 6,100 tons of CO2 emissions each year,” Mr. Koito shared.
Mitsubishi Motors Thailand has rolled out the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to provide customers an option to switch to a plug-in hybrid SUV with high performance but low emission. Earlier this year, the company also launched a new green initiative called "Solar for Lives," which is focused on installing solar panels in community hospitals across Thailand. The company also supports carbon emission reduction through 60 Years 60 Rai reforestation project.”
