Taking a break from their usual work schedules, Meralco employee divers volunteered to clean up the shores and waters of Anilao, Batangas in Shore It Up 2013, the fifth annual environmental conservation campaign headed by Metro Pacific Investments Foundation, the social development arm of the Metro Pacific Investments Corporation. Drawing hundreds of employee-participants from the MVP group of companies, this year’s eco-campaign included coastal and underwater clean up and environmental protection lectures.
“This is our second time to participate in this campaign and we’re always pleased with the outcome of this activity,” shared One Meralco Foundation president Jeffrey Tarayao. “Not only were we able to contribute to the conservation of Anilao but also build a strong partnership with our fellow corporate environmentalists in the MVP group,” he added.
