Since the December 3rd, 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) tree-planting event by 37 staff from Jetti Foundation and International, 400 indigenous Philippine hardwood trees were restored at the Laguna Quezon Land Grant in Siniloan, Laguna in the Sierra Madre mountain range as part of their holistic efforts to give back to the community and the environment in the Philippines.

The recent 27th February 2018 singing of the MOA describes a renewed collaboration between Jetti Foundation and FEED to explore a number of community support interventions through tree-planting for carbon offset, rural and urban edible and nutrition based gardening solutions in marginalised communities and mangrove reforestation in various coastal communities in the Philippines.
Dominique Lopez of Jetti Foundation & International and Jacob van Vliet Bakker, Chairman of FEED, signed to seal the partnership for a greener Philippines, currently being designed.
Thank you from FEED to the Jetti family for having the heart and commitment to jointly exploring new ways by which we can have an impact on communities in need in the Philippines. Kudos and more green power to you all.
About Jetti Foundation International, Inc.
Jetti Petroleum Inc., an all Filipino-owned company engaged in the importation, blending, distribution, and retailing of petroleum products, has had a heart for the less fortunate Filipinos ever since. It has, without fanfare or publicity, been doing outreach programs and sponsorships to different institutions, such as public schools, homes for the aged, and orphanages to name a few, as well as giving out donations of both monetary means and in kind to affected areas and families during times of calamities.
With its growing desire to help, serve, and give back to the Filipino people, it has decided to put a separate entity that would formally develop and handle programs and activities geared toward the improvement of Filipino lives, thus, the birthing of Jetti Foundation International, Inc.
Jetti Foundation International, Inc., also known as “Jetti Foundation” or “JFII,” is the corporate social responsibility arm of Jetti Petroleum Inc. Jetti Foundation is a non-stock and non-profit organization formed and operated exclusively for charitable purposes. It aims to search for impoverished communities, beginning with its primary partner communities located near Jetti Petroleum bulk terminals, and develop programs and projects that will help alleviate the hardships faced by our fellowmen living in these areas.
FEED runs a number of Students and Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE); Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – such as mangrove planting for coastal protection or ridge reforestation plantings; One Child, One Tree; Bio-Intensive Gardens (BIG) for nutrition in public elementary schools and other spaces; Climate Change Survival 101 and other LIVING LEGACY programs – customised environmental engagement activities for individuals and organisations interested in contributing to climate change adaptation efforts and greening critical areas such as watersheds, ridges, and reefs that all require rehabilitation.
