Promoting a sustainable future and a green environment, Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC) partnered with the Operations Wing Eastern Mindanao, Philippine Air Force to undertake mangrove tree planting activity in Punta Bonbon, Cagayan de Oro city.
“It is fulfilling to see more and more mangroves trees planted in this area. IDC was here in 2017 and initially planted a few hundred trees. We continued to do Mangrove planting activities here in 2018. And now, the mangrove area size almost doubled! If people continue to plant mangroves along the coastline of Cagayan de Oro, then there is good hope for a better and greener future” said Clara Marie Asuncion Elizaga, IDC Director of Corporate Affairs.
The activity took place last April 6, together with Cagayan De Oro City Local Environment and Natural Resources Office (CLENRO), and Damiani Property Management and Services, Inc., the official leasing and property management of IDC’s Primavera projects in the city.
“Partaking in a tree planting activity promotes green activism in making others aware of how important environmental protection is, especially nowadays. The activity is an overwhelming experience as it is not only participated by government agencies alone but also private sectors” added Mark Justine, Accounting Officer of Operations Wing Eastern Mindanao. Mark participated in the activity as part of the Philippine Air Force team.
IDC has been partnering with Environment and Natural Resources Office (CLENRO) since it developed its first project, Primavera Residences in the city of Golden Friendship. Approximately 3,000 mangroves were planted by the company since 2017.
Italpinas Development Corporation has been a leading green advocator of sustainable living in Cagayan de Oro. Both projects of IDC, Primavera Residences and Primavera City, won the International Property Awards for Best Mixed-use Development in the Philippines due to its use of passive green design.
