Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation (TMP) recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the local government of Lian, Batangas to clean-up, rehabilitate and preserve a 10-ha mangrove plantation area along the coastlines of Lian.

This project is in support of DENR’s National Greening Program and aligned with the global All-Toyota Green Wave Project. Under the MOA, TMP commits to plant 25,000 mangrove propagules by 2023 and provide necessary resources that will help protect marine life and biodiversity in the area, which then help in providing livelihood for the local community.

The signing ceremony was participated in by TMP vice president for General Services Department Cathy Benitez, Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO) representative Alvin Jonson, and City Environment & Natural Resources Office officer-in-charge (OIC) Isagani Amatorio. After the simple signing ceremony, volunteers from TMP and Lian Fisherfolk Association planted 5,000 mangrove propagules in the adopted area and collected over 471 kg. of wastes.

Throughout the activities held, volunteers followed strict health protocols set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to ensure the safety and health of participants. TMP remains committed to the environment as it continuously implements programs aligned with the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050 aimed at creating a more sustainable future for the next generations.
