PILI, CAMARINES SUR – To support the National Greening Program and the celebration of Arbor Day, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) conducted several tree planting activities in various areas in North Luzon.
Despite inclement weather conditions, around 2,650 assorted seedlings were planted in host community areas from June 25 to July 3, 2012. The number is expected to increase as more tree-planting activities have been scheduled next week in parts of Central Luzon.
NGCP’s tree planting activities conducted nationwide are in conformance with the Integrated Management System (IMS) policy and commitment to environmental protection and enhancement.
The National Greening Program, implemented through Executive Order 26, is the government’s priority program to integrate and harmonize all greening initiatives of the government, the civil society and the private sector in order to address poverty, food security, environmental stability, and climate change.
The greening program specifically seeks to plant 1.5 billion seedlings in 1.5 million hectares of public lands nationwide in six years, from 2011 to 2016. NGCP, a privately owned corporation in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s power grid, fully supports the said greening program. (NGCP/PIA Sorsogon)
