The Aboitiz Group, represented by AboitizPower Generation EVP and COO Manny V. Rubio signed last June 5 a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that will implement a systematic, sustainable, and meaningful reforestation partnership with the goal of planting and growing six million trees via Phase 2 of the A-Park sustainability program together with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, represented by Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje.
Having achieved 3.4 million trees by end- 2014, the Aboitiz Group is now embarking on planting additional 6 million trees, or a total of 9.4 million trees by 2020.
The A-Park program supports the Aboitiz Group’s efforts in Carbon Emissions Reduction, a focus area under Planet of our sustainability framework and aims to minimize our environmental impact to help create a BetterWorld.
“Today, we are stepping up to take on a bigger challenge of the A-Park with a new goal to plant 6 million more trees over the next six years, in tandem with the national effort to re-green the Philippines.
