PHINMA Energy subsidiary adopts 50 hectare reforestation site in Olongapo
In support of DENR’s National Greening Program, PHINMA Energy, through its subsidiary One Subic Power Generation Corporation, signed a Memorandum of Agreement with partners DENR-Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (DENR-CENRO) Olongapo and Subic-Cawag Upland Farmers’ Association to adopt the 50-hectare Cawag Reforestation site in Olongapo.
“Di naman na siguro bago sa bawat isa na kailangan nating magtanim ng puno for food security and climate change adaptation, and biodiversity conservation. Iyon ‘yung objective ng National Greening Program na nilaunch nung 2011 and until now ginagawa pa rin natin, na-expand to 2028.”
[It’s probably not new to us that we need to plant trees for food security, climate change adaptation, and biodiversity conservation. That is the objective of the National Greening Program which was launched in 2011, and extended until 2028.] said Marife Castillo, CENRO Officer for DENR Olongapo.
“Kaya nagpapasalamat kami sa One Subic kasi naisip niyong i-commit yung 5 years sa planting and maintenance ng plants. We appreciate these partnerships with companies,” Castillo added. [That’s why we are thankful to One Subic because they will commit five years to the planting and maintenance of the plants.]
“We believe that through collaboration, we will be able to achieve a higher success rate,” said Jed Africa, PHINMA Energy’s CSR and Sustainability Senior Officer. “This reforestation program is part of our corporate social responsibility and sustainability efforts as a responsible energy company.”
One Subic Power Generation Corporation operates the 116 MW power plant in SBMA.
The Cawag site brings PHINMA Energy’s total adopted land area to 127 hectares. The other sites cover the 27 hectare arboretum project in Brgy. Tanglad, Sibunag, Guimaras and the 50 hectare reforestation project in the critical watershed of Ipo in Bulacan.
