A-Park is the Aboitiz Group’s contribution to reforestation and a healthy ecosystem. Every year since 2010, we have been conducting a groupwide simultaneous tree planting activity on top of the tree-planting activities being done by the various business units with the goal of planting 3 million trees by 2015. We hit that target by end of 2014, a year ahead of our target. Last June 5, in celebration of the World Environment Day, we signed a strategic partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) where we commit to plant 6 million more trees under the National Greening Program (NGP). By 2020, we will have a total of 9 million trees planted all over the Philippines with the help of our team members, host communities and people’s organizations.
Race to Reduce (R2R) updates
We always strive to find better ways in conducting our operations, to minimize our own operational footprint and enhance the environment together with our team members. As we take steps toward this objective, here are key figures highlighting our groupwide consumption of water, power and fuel as of October. Let’s continue to challenge ourselves to manage our footprint and optimize the way we use our planet’s precious resources.
