Armed with cleaning tools, brooms and waste containers, around 15 DMCI Power Corporation employees went out of their way to help protect what they love—the rivers, creeks and beaches of Palawan – by getting rid of marine debris and floating trash.
They volunteered time to be with the community in cleaning water bodies on September 19, 2015 for these God’s resources to regain life, health and vibrancy.
One of the Corporate Social Responsibility pillars of DMCI Power is environment preservation and protection. Engaged in power generation business, DMCI Power has been mindful of being environmental compliant prioritizing community activities that reduce pollution.
DMCI Power volunteers participated in the international day for coastal clean-up dubbed in the Philippines as “Adopt an Estero” program. This year’s theme is “Bayanihan para sa Malinis na Katubigan at Karagatan.”
“We will continue to support this activity as part of DMCI Power’s commitment to environmental protection,” said Engr. Teofe Cadiz, DMCI Power-Palawan Plant Manager. “In fact, this activity is part of our yearly Environment, Health and Safety and Corporate Social Responsibility work plan,” he added.
Local government agencies such as the Environmental Management Bureau and other private companies are one with the goal of saving waterbodies in the province.
The Adopt an Estero program is an apt and timely for a province that is doing all efforts to maintain its status as the last biodiversity frontier in the country.
