Sogod, Cebu- Fifty kaubans headed by COO and president himself, Alberto A. Ignacio Jr. actively volunteered in the Aboitiz group-wide Simultaneous Tree Planting last July 15, 2017 at Sitio Bagakay, Sogod, Cebu.
The STP is an annual initiative of the Aboitiz Group as part of the Corporate Social Responsibility in making the A-park program possible. This year, the target was 600 volunteers for Cebu and approximately 6,000 seedlings to be planted. Erramon Aboitiz, CEO of the Aboitiz Group shared that we are three years away in completing our A-park and based on the current number of 5.4 million trees planted, there is a need to double our efforts to reach the target goal of 9 million trees by 2020.
This year’s STP was spearheaded by AboitizLand and coordinated with the different business units across the group. Richel Mahayag, Felma Yap, Kits Chuidian, Roy Ruedas August Dacanay, Zeny Novabos, and Reynaldo Loga were among the executives who led the Aboitiz Construction kaubans in the tree planting.
ACI together with AboitizLand, Republic Cement, City Savings and the oil group business units were assigned to plant in Site 3.
Two of our Kaubans namely, Maria Chona Herrera of PPCD and Kristine Ann Kindica of E & D won in the treasure hunt puzzle during the tree planting activity.
It contained the new group purpose of the Aboitiz Group which is “To drive change for a better world” and our new group ABC’s which is “Advancing business and communities.”
