Hyundai E&C is set to protect mountains of Korea suffering from unsustainable development. Hyundai E&C signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Environment and the Korea National Park on June 6 to help preserve and manage national resources of the country, especially in national parks, on a constant basis. About 20 officials including Jung Yeon-man of the Ministry of Environment, Park Sang-mun of Hyundai E&C and Shin Dong-won of the Korea National Park attended the signing ceremony, and Hyundai E&C pledged to sponsor the construction of volunteer centers and participate in volunteering works and campaigns for the protection of ecosystem. The MOU was intended to protect forests of Korea in line with “Forest: Nature at Your Service,” this year’s theme of World Environment Day designated by United Nations to stimulate world awareness of environmental issues. Korea’s national parks, a home to wide range of flora and fauna, attract as many as 44 million people annually, but there are only about 20,000 volunteers. In addition, as spaces for a variety of educational programs and hands-on activities are vastly insufficient, national parks have found it difficult to operate volunteering works. To solve the problem, our company plans to provide financial support for the establishment of volunteer centers in Dobong and Uyi districts of Mt. Bukhansan, Mt. Jirisan, Mt. Sokrisan and Taean coast.
