Aboitiz Construction contributes to community gardening and waste management efforts of Cebu communities

In collaboration with the Agriculture’s Office and Community Environment and Natural Resources Office of Toledo City and
Balamban in Cebu, Aboitiz Construction led a “Scrap to Crop and Waste Management Program” that capacitated a total of 55
farmers on gardening and waste management.

In partnership with the Agriculture’s Office and Community Environment and Natural Resources Office of Toledo City and Balamban, farmers were trained to do organic farming, vegetable production, and solid waste management.
Both barangays are aiming to have sustainable and environment-friendly gardens which will serve as good sources of free fruits and vegetables for community members.
To support the current practices of the barangays on the said fields, Aboitiz Construction donated gardening equipment, fruit bearing seedlings, organic fertilizers, and waste management bins to the barangays.
“Our mission is to contribute to the environmental programs of the communities where our projects are located. The said programs are aligned with our sustainability aspirations. We aim to contribute to building sustainable communities and partnerships and capacity building will be our important enablers,” said Nina Ylagan-Pedro, Division Chief for Corporate Affairs and Services of Aboitiz Construction.
Through this initiative, Aboitiz Construction sold its scrap materials from project sites thus, generating funds to implement the Scrap to Crop and Waste Management program, including planting of seedlings that will eventually be a good source of food for the communities.
 
As part of its sustainability efforts, Aboitiz Construction sold its scrap materials from project sites to generate funds for the
implementation of its Corporate Social Responsibility programs.

 
“We thank Aboitiz Construction for this partnership. Through this, we target to establish an accessible garden for everyone. We also want to strengthen our waste management efforts and contribute to environmental actions through the learning sessions that were provided to us ,” said Buanoy Barangay Captain Clyde Selbos.
 
Last year, in partnership with the City Environment and Natural Resources Office of Lipa, Batangas, Aboitiz Construction also conducted a similar program for the local government unit (LGUs) officials of Brgy. Simlong and Pinamucan Ibaba in Batangas City. The program aimed to train LGUs on the basics of tree planting and solid waste management and provided forest seedlings as well as material recovery facilities.
