    Hyundai Green Zone
    HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY
    Hyundai Motor Group has conducted its Hyundai Green Zone project
    since 2008 in Chakanor to prevent desertification in China.

    Planting Green Hope Hyundai Green Zone began in 2008 to prevent the desertification of Inner Mongolia. China suffers from severe desertification. Approximately 3,500 km2 turns into desert every year in China, Mongolia, etc.

    Dreaming of Freedom from Yellow Dust Chakanor means “white lake.” As this name suggests, there was a large 80km2 lake to the west and a small 30km2 lake to the east, and the large Xilin Gol prairie was full of life. But the large western lake dried up in 2002 and Chakanor became a land with a dead, destroyed ecosystem. This desolate land began to recover with the start of Hyundai Green Zone project in 2008.

    Chakanor Becomes Grassland Hyundai Motor Group has been working for 10 years since 2008 to restore desolate Chakanor’s lively greenness. We have planted seepweed, which grows well in alkaline soil, and have built wooden walls from willow tree branches to ensure the seepweed can grow well. These efforts have transformed 60% of the western lake, or 50 million m2 from dry land into green grassland. Last year, a total of 927 people visited the Hyundai Green Zone, including the global youth volunteer group Happy Move, comprising Beijing university students, HMC and Beijing Hyundai Motor Company (BHMC) executives, and family volunteers. They participated in our efforts to prevent desertification and restored 33% of the site (13 million m2) to grassland. Hyundai Motor Group has been recognized for its contributions to preventing desertification and has been awarded by the Chinese government for its CSR, beating local businesses to win 1st place in “Chinese Enterprise Public Interest Development lndex.” Hyundai Motor Group plans to start a second Hyundai Green Zone project in Boshaodenor in Zhenglan Qi.

    Sustainable Water Circulation Project
    HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY
    Hyundai Motor Company strives to secure safe drinking water.

    A Project to Create a Sustainable Water Recycling Village On March 22, 2017, to celebrate UN Water Day, HMC began a new CSR program to help an underprivileged community in Tanai, Philippines gain Warter independence. HMC will build a rain water center in the mountain village to lay the foundation for sustainable operations.

    Securing safe Drinking Water using Rain Water Tandang Kutyo village in the Philippines, where the first rain water center was built, does not have access to the water supply system run by the government and its main source of drinking water (wells, valley, and spring water) are highly polluted with E. coil bacteria and arsenic, making it difficult for them to secure safe drinking water. The rain water center consists of rain water storage tanks (60 toms), water purifier filters and valves, automobil-shaped water sinks, and rainwater playgrounds, allowing the residents to secure safe drinking water from rain alone

    To create a sustainable Miricle The significance of this project lies in helping the residents gain independence in securing drinking water supply by assisting them in operating the facility independently themselves. Accordingly, hyundai Motor Company organized an independent operation committee in the village responsible for operating and managing the rain water center and also worked with NGOs and universities to create a foundation for their sustainable operation through regular public helth and sanitation education and monitoring. furthenore, the company will provide trucks equipped with water tanks and water pumps as drinking water vehicles. It will also provide young people in the village with training on operating and repairing vehicles so that they can supply water to other villages nearby, thus expanding the number of people who can benefit from the water center opeartion.

    Training Skilled Employees forthe Future of the Philippines HDEC supports educational CSR projects to raise the employment rate in the Philippines.
    In the municipality of Rodriguez, the low employment rate threatens local residents’ livelihood. Since the people of Rodriguez have very little skills at all, Hyundai E&C decided to build a job training center with KFHI (Korea Food for the Hungry International) in Rodriguez.
    Soon after, 64 students enrolled in the job training center to learn new job skills.
    In 2017, all 64 students who had trained at the center got licenses related to their newly acquired skills. Among them, 76.6% found a job right after they became certified. Meanwhile, HDEC has plans to hire employees from the job training center.

    Installing Sanitary and Drainage Systems
    HYUNDAI ENGINEERING & CONSTRUCTION
    About a thousand people have benefitted from Hyundai Engineering & Construction (HDEC)’s CSR project aimed at resolving the
    fundamental problems arising from polluted water.

    Saving People from Water Pollution Indonesia, where six major construction sites are located, is the one of HDEC’s most important countries. Indonesia has fourth largest population in the world and has enjoyed average annual GDP growth of 5%. But on the other hand, the stagnation of its impoverished population has seen very little improvement.
    As a partner enterprise, HDEC has constantly considered how to forge win-win relationships in Indonesia. First, HDEC tries to understand the current situation. It turns out people of Indonesia have suffered from polluted water. So HDEC launched CSR projects in Indonesia to resolve fundamental problems so that sustainable CSR could be achieved in Indonesia.
    Because iron and lime are dissolved in rivers in the Pahae Jae district, the pollution around rivers is serious. Also, sanitary and drainage systems have not been properly installed, so sewage flowed directly into the groundwater. During the rainy season (nine months), it became much worse. Putrid odors were everywhere, and people suffered from dengue fever, malaria, diarrhea and skin disease.
    In order to solve the problem, HDEC approached Indonesia with an international NGO ‘Habitat’. HDEC has newly built 14 houses, 6 sanitary systems and has restored two systems in Pahae Jae, where HDEC’s power plant is located nearby. In addition to building houses and installing sanitary and drainage systems, HDEC has regularly provided sanitary education to help local people lead healthier lives. More than a thousand people have benefitted from the 2017 CSR project in Indonesia.

    Building a New Elementary School
    HYUNDAI ENGINEERING & CONSTRUCTION
    Hyundai Engineering & Construction (HDEC) has built education facilities and provided supplies for underprivileged children in Myanmar,
    enabling a few hundred students to take classes.

    New Hopes from Education HDEC has promoted CSR projects in Myanmar by building education facilities and providing supplies for underprivileged children. Children of the Thanlyin Township (Myanmar) used to study in a wooden school made of bamboo trees. The small wooden structure was prone to precipitation and the students’ grades were mixed. They couldn’t even take classes on rainy days as the raindrops would fall through the leaky ceilings. Since Myanmar experiences over 260 rainy days annually, it was hard to proceed with normal school classes and there were concerns that the school would collapse one day.
    To offer a better and safer place to study, HDEC started to renovated 2 schools in July 2017, along with International organization Plan International. The renovation schools accommodate 2,200 students. The students of Dala Township are happy to have a clean and safe school, and they can take classes arranged according to a regular curriculum suitable for their respective grades.
