Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI) marked the start of its annual Volunteer Week with a tree planting activity at the La Mesa Nature Reserve last September 16.
Employees of CPI and Chevron Holdings Inc. – Manila Shared Services Center headed to the reserve to preserve its natural beauty and help make Metro Manila’s lungs healthier.
Chevron, in partnership with ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, conducted the Go Green and Save Trees activity to help save the La Mesa Watershed, which absorbs 3 to 5% of NCR’s carbon emissions and is the source of drinking water for 12 million people.
About 53 participants from Chevron joined the tree planting, which is the company’s first face-to-face activity in two years. Each participant handled five seedlings of Malapapaya and Arungin. By the end of the day, the volunteers were able to plant 400 Malapapaya and Arungin seedlings in the nature reserve.
Chevron has previously partnered with ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya on other environment-related activities as both companies share the same vision of protecting the environment.
