logo_cph-chiyoda-logo-e1567510156642.png17 August 2019, Laguna Quezon Land Grant (LQLG), Siniloan, Laguna.  88 enthusiastic and fun loving Chiyoda staff joined their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Tree Planting event organised by FEED at the Laguna Quezon Land Grant (LQLG) protected reforestation site in Siniloan, Laguna on 17 August 2019 to plant 200 native Philippine forest trees.

One of Chiyoda Philippines Corporation’s responses to the climate change crises is to take action by planting trees.  Upon hearing the news that the first Japanese engineering services company planted 200 trees in the Sierra Madres, FEED Founder & President Mrs. Ofelia Manankil Bakker smiled, saying: “It is very encouraging for us at FEED to see a group of 100 employees of Chiyoda Philippines leaving Manila at 5AM to plant trees with us on a Saturday – thank you for leading the way in climate change action!”

Forester Rey LoridaThe 200 native Philippine rainforest trees will be well-adapted to the soil and local climate conditions present in the area, as they mimic the existing species already present.  Forester Reynaldo Lorida, field manager of LQLG, delivered a “Status of Philippine Forests” talk during the welcome at 8AM, stating: “Every Filipino is required to plant one tree each year. according to Section 8 of Republic Act No. 10176, otherwise known as the Arbor Day Act of 2012…’All able-bodied citizens of the Philippines, who are at least twelve (12) years of age, shall be required to plant one (1) tree every year’.”

20190817_080712Following the welcome talks, the 100 Chiyoda Eco-Warriors trekked a moderate 30 minute walk through the forest to the panting planting site, where the site was already prepared with standard spacing, hole depth and width and the bagged seedlings in place near each whole. Forest Guard Larry demonstrated how to debag and plant at root crown level, how to pat down the soil around the seedling and ensure it withstands the strong Eastern habagat winds.

20190817_084204Companies like Chiyoda are instrumental to FEED’s ability to scale up and out our “greening” efforts, which always incorporate alternative livelihood development and practical science- and evidence-based research scholarships that aim to benefit local communities to ensure that any climate interventions will leave our footprints in better conditions than those we received them in today.

FEED’s Living Legacy programs are intended to engage the public at large in taking  climate change action. Chiyoda Philippines Corporation is committed to providing quality and technical services to their stakeholders. By also carrying out Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) actions aligned with their vision, they aim to increase corporate values and promote climate resilience as part of their environmental advocacies.

20190817_085525LQLG is a government protected land that was once severely affected by illegal logging, slash-and-burn fire regimes, clearing for grazing cattle and charcoal making, amongst other illegal activities – which is why our forest guards patrol the over 9,000 ha. forest to ensure that such detrimental activities are prevented.

Thank you Chiyoda Eco-Warriors!

We thank you Chiyoda Philippines Corp. Eco-warriors for helping us improve our forest cover, provide cleaner air, capture carbon and support sustainable local livelihoods for a better country for all!

About FEED

Fostering Education & Environment for Development (FEED Inc.) is a non-profit that reforests parts of the Sierra Madre. Besides helping plant the indigenous Philippine trees, FEED will also help look after the trees to ensure their survival, as the 1,000 trees planted will form part of large-scale reforestation efforts. Massive reforestation could be extremely useful in removing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Contact FEED

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.
