[Japan] Social Contribution Activities at Mazda Stadium (Hiroshima)

Mazda has acquired the naming rights for the Hiroshima Municipal Baseball Stadium (now known as Mazda Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima), and conducts social contribution activities through support for the stadium.

Welfare Vehicle Donation
For each one million stadium visitors, Mazda donates one Mazda welfare vehicle to a social welfare organization. The cumulative number of visitors reached twelve million in April 2016 and a ceremony was arranged attended by the related parties including Mr. Masamichi Kogai, Representative Director, President and CEO of Mazda. Accordingly, the twelfth vehicle was donated to a selected organization in Hiroshima City.

Carbon Offset
To support the Hiroshima Prefecture’s carbon offset initiative, Mazda made a carbon offset of around 117 tons of CO2 emissions, which is equivalent to the electricity use in the lighting of night games at the stadium in 2016. The carbon offset credit was created by Hiroshima Prefecture with increasing CO2 absorption by forest.
