The Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. XIII, in cooperation with Silangan Mindanao Mining Company, Inc. and Taganito Mining Corporation, conducted a tree-planting activity on September 30, 2015 at the Provincial Tree Park in Brgy. Ipil, Surigao City in keeping with the government’s National Greening Program.
MGB ROXIII, SMMCI and TMC employees planted approximately 400 assorted forest and fruit tree seedlings. Inspired by their commitment to environmental protection, the employees also tended the tree seedlings that were planted during the Environment Month Culminating Activities last June 30, 2015. They believe that green initiatives and activities will heighten public awareness of environmental preservation and authentic stewardship. In the same way, green initiatives and activities boost camaraderie and collaboration among government employees and stakeholders in the minerals industry.
The OIC-CENRO of Surigao City, Mr. Ruel E. Efren, and some CENRO employees also participated in the activity to affirm their keen involvement in green advocacies and activities.
