For its annual tree planting and nurturing activity this year, Epson Precision (Philippines), Inc. (EPPI), worked with the National Power Corporation (NPC) and the Malaraya-Malepunyo Watershed Protection Council (MMWPC) and planted about 4,000 seedlings at Mt. Malaraya-Malepunyo (Biak-na-Bundok) in Brgy. Talisay, Lipa City, Batangas last August 3.
EPPI President Kazuyuki Amano led the event, with over 190 volunteers from EPPI.
This year, EPPI was able to cover two hectares of land, planting about 4,000 seedlings of various trees that are indigenous to the Philippines, including Narra, Kupang, Tibig, Toog, and Taluto. Every Epson volunteer was asked to plant a minimum of 20 seedlings. The company expects a survival rate higher than the 88% result from last year’s tree-planting activity.
The 4,000 seedlings planted this year was a 60% increase from the number of seedlings Epson planted last year. “This only shows our devotion to planting and nurturing trees in maintaining a pollution-free environment. Aside from the increase in number of seedlings, the sincere commitment from everyone in the organization – from our President to our staff – is the true indication of how being environment-friendly is entrenched in our corporate consciousness,” said Joyce Tan, EPPI’s Environment Manager.
