Employees from Henkel Thailand contributed more than 160 hours in conservation activities at Khao Yai National Park. Steered by the Henkel Thailand Finance team, these activities are part of the company’s 50th anniversary celebrations and corporate citizenship efforts.
“All of us play a part in sustaining our planet for current and future generations. Engaging in conservation efforts to support the biodiversity of plants and wildlife is one of the many ways we act to mitigate climate change and give back to our community,” said Andrianto Jayapurna, President of Henkel Thailand.
Henkel Thailand employees engaged in three main activities organized in conjunction with ENAC (Environment and Nature Activity Centre) and Thai Elephants Conservation Centre. Participants dug artificial saltlicks, which are deposits of mineral salts for animals to supplement their nutrition and planted seedlings.
Employees also learnt about the role of elephants in its ecosystem, their diet, and made fertilizer from elephant manure.
“These activities foster respect for our planet’s resources and inspire us embrace a mindset of sustainability. From a small group of thoughtful citizens, we can pay it forward and change the world for future generations,” said Warangkana Siriyodhipun, Head of Finance and Compliance Officer, Henkel Thailand.
The conservation activities were conducted in Khao Yai National Park, which is the first national park in Thailand and home to a variety of mammals and bird species. It is part of the Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex, a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO.
