"Mazda do good" Program
[Thailand] Mazda Sales (Thailand) Co.,Ltd. (MST)
Aiming for flood mitigation and forest improvement
Since FY2017, MST management and employees have implemented the "Mazda do good" program.
In FY2018, over 200 employees, including middle managers, volunteered together to build an erosion-control dam in Namtok Sam Lan National Park in Saraburi Province. The initiative contributes to creating a sustainable society through protecting forests, which play a vital role in solving environmental problems.
After listening to national park staff give a talk about erosion-control dam construction, the volunteers divided into two groups and set to work. Check dams store water during the rainy season to mitigate flooding and help prevent riverbank erosion. Additionally, the water they store helps sustain the forest during the dry season.
This year, participants built two dams through constructing wood bases and stacking stones that will act as a water barrier.
