Wazzup Pilipinas!

Global electronics leader Mitsubishi Electric contributes towards a more sustainable planet through a momentous environmental project. Senior management and staff of the Mitsubishi Electric Group of companies in the Philippines embark on a tree planting activity in the mountainous area of Tayak Hills in Rizal, Laguna as part of its Environmental CSR programme to preserve the environment and social infrastructures.

A thousand indigenous seedlings will be planted by the Mitsubishi Electric Group of companies in the Philippines. The companies comprise the elevator, escalator, air-conditioner, and chiller equipment distributor International Elevator and Equipment Inc. (IEE) led by its president Ramoncito Ocampo, and automotive parts manufacturer Laguna Autoparts Manufacturing Corporation (LAMCOR) led by its president Yoshinori Osaka. The event is co-organised by Mitsubishi Electric’s Asia Corporate Office (MEAP–ACO), led by its Director of Asia Corporate Office Shoichi Suwa. The event marks the inaugural joint environmental projects between the companies.

The activity is supported and participated by the local government of Laguna, led by its Mayor Tony Aurelio and Vice Mayor Vener Munoz.

“Mitsubishi Electric recognizes that our planet needs to be protected for future generations. Climate change is one of the most critical issues that we must address to realize a sustainable global environment,” said Mr. Suwa in his welcome message. "By planting a tree, we promote life. Not only do trees take in carbon dioxide as part of photosynthesis, it also gives oxygen as by product and this is vital for human survival," added Ocampo.

Tayak Hills was chosen as the site for its ecological importance to the province as it also serves as catchment area for rain water. Aside from absorbing carbon dioxide and mitigating soil erosion, the trees also preserve the natural flow of ground water which is important in sustaining streams and lakes around San Pablo, Laguna which are key sources of livelihood in the surrounding communities.

In addition to this joint initiative, both Mitsubishi Electric companies have been contributing toward environmental conservation through their own programmes. For example, LAMCOR has been involved in initiatives such as tree planting, recycling competition and vegetable gardening for a school.

The tree-planting initiative is part of Mitsubishi Electric’s Environmental Vision 2021 which espouses respect for the natural environment in all aspects of the company’s business operations in its commitment for a greener tomorrow.
