Second Overseas Country in its 16-year history After Vietnam
Suntory Holdings Limited will launch its unique next-generation environmental education program, the Suntory Mizuiku-Education Program for Nature and Water in Thailand starting Thursday, July 4, to teach children the importance of water.
With “Mizu To Ikiru” as its promise to society, Suntory Group has promoted various global water-related initiatives, including activities to preserve and restore nature, based on the group-wide Sustainable Water Philosophy. In March 2015, the group launched its Suntory Mizuiku-Education Program for Nature and Water overseas for the first time in Vietnam, receiving very high reputation from participating children, teachers, and local government.
Asia is dealing with various issues related to water sanitation and water resources. Viewing the region as a high-priority area for sharing the importance and value of water, the group will now follow its success in Vietnam by launching the program in Thailand.
●About the Suntory Mizuiku-Education Program for Nature and Water in Thailand
In collaboration with a group company Suntory PepsiCo Beverage Thailand and local NGOs, the program will serve nearly 1,100 elementary school students in grades 4 to 6 in Saraburi and Rayong Provinces near the company’s plants, and Chiang Mai, home to much of Thailand’s water resources. This unique hands-on-with-nature program teaches the value of water and the importance of water resource conservation.
Additionally, the group had been involved in water conservation activities in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand in May, helping to ease stream currents and prevent soil erosion with the installation of check dams to aid groundwater infiltration and the planting of trees to prevent soil from flowing into streams. The group plans to continue such activities into the future.
