FEED CSR Patrons

LIVING LEGACY: Plant a Tree, FEED Our Future ~FEED Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Patrons

The CSR business case for planting trees is recognised worldwide as a direct climate solution intervention in urban and rural areas. It helps lower carbon emissions, protects vulnerable communities, and even contributes to well-being to reconnect with nature.

The strong recognition in the Final Paris Climate Agreement promoting trees and forests of every kind, from urban jungles to endemic forests, is gaining momentum.  At the Paris climate conference (COP21) in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. The agreement sets out a global action plan to put the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C.

Aligned with the nation states agreements, FEED’s efforts are geared towards climate change adaptation and mitigation:

Adaptation

  • to strengthen societies’ ability to deal with the impacts of climate change;  and
  • to provide continued and enhanced international support for adaptation to developing countries (Philippines).

Mitigation – Reducing Carbon Emissions

  • a long-term goal of keeping the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels;
  • to aim to limit the increase to 1.5°C, since this would significantly reduce risks and the impacts of climate change;
  • on the need for global emissions to peak as soon as possible, recognising that this will take longer for developing countries;
  • to undertake rapid reductions thereafter in accordance with the best available science.

By planting, restoring and protecting trees and absorbing CO2 emissions the green way – particularly with endemic and endangered tree species with high carbon sequestration capabilities (e.g. bambusetum sinks), pursuing CSR can also help companies lead the way in sustainable practices and eventual cost reductions; contribute to beautifying green landscapes everyone can enjoy, show ethical support for local communities, provide sustainable livelihoods for marginal populations, including food security for Indigenous Peoples.

As such, FEED maintains active links with leading academia to conduct research into the sustainable and feasible restoration of Philippine forests and natural woodlands. We only plant with partners and partner sites that have the capability to also manage and monitor the seedlings to full maturity (aiming for <1% maturity).

In collaboration with iTREES, FEED will participate in the real-time monitoring (via remote Geographic Information Systems/GIS) and retro-active tagging and counting of all seedlings planted and managed – to enable not only FEED sponsors, members, patrons and other stakeholders, but the public at large to access the latest species planted, locations and numbers.

FEED works with public and private sector organisations to help design and implement their CSR projects and policies geared towards international best practices.

CSR contributions and other donations cover the full purchase, service and maintenance of each tree planted in a company’s name, as well as the livelihood of contract farmers and gardeners assigned to manage FEED partner forestry sites across the country.

Companies can consider sponsoring a hectare or more of land to be reforested and provide livelihood for a community, including fruit bearing trees, depending on site planting location.  In cases of reforesting large tracts of land, FEED works with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for the additional  manpower and in some cases security, aligned with the AFP’s remit to help reforest the country and contribute to the National Greening Program.
