World Cement,

More than 3 t of waste has been collected by employees of Holcim Philippines and volunteers from the company’s business partners and communities. In support of the International Coastal Cleanup in September, the waste was collected near bodies of water close to Holcim facilities on a nationwide scale.

The cleanup drives were conducted by the company and its partners in Bagbag Cove in La Union, Matictic River in Bulacan, San Rafael Shore in Batangas, Mansaya Shore in Iloilo, Publacion Coast in Misamis Oriental, and Ilang River in Davao City. The drives took place from 1 to 29 September and more than 900 people from the company, including its partners, joined the activities.

“The company plants to regularly mobilise employees and partners to participate in the annual activity,” said Stephanie Frogoso, Environment Manager at Holcim Philippines. “Aside from the coastal and river cleanups, Holcim Philippines also implements community seminars on proper waste management to help lessen discarded materials ending in bodies of water.”

These activities are part of the company’s ‘Holcim Helps’ social assistance campaign, as well as its sustainability commitment to be a partner to its communities in taking care of nature.
