Cebu Pacific reaffirmed its commitment to environmental conservation by joining the 37th International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) on Sept. 16, 2023.
The ICC, organized by the nonprofit organization Ocean Conservancy, is the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean’s health.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) said 35,000 Filipinos came together to clean up coastal areas across the country this year.
Cebu Pacific contributed significantly to this effort by mobilizing a team of volunteers who worked with government agencies, private sector entities, academe and civil society groups to collect and document waste at the Manila Baywalk Dolomite Beach.
“At Cebu Pacific, we go the extra mile― not just in the services we provide, but also in the initiatives we support. Our participation in the International Coastal Cleanup shows our enduring commitment to foster a culture of volunteerism among our employees and support larger efforts towards a cleaner and healthier environment,” said Cebu Pacific chief human resources officer Felix Lopez.
