LCF Begins the “LCF Forest”

Eighty-two environment enthusiasts joined the tree planting activity of the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF) on September 22 at Ipo Watershed, Norzagaray, Bulacan. As promised in its LCF CSR Expo last July 2012, six hundred sixteen seedlings were planted for the same number of delegates who participated in the two-day conference and exhibit. 

LCF, led by its Environment Committee, partnered with the Manila Water Company (MWC) and the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) in choosing the three-hectare planting site, dubbed the “LCF Forest”. A Memorandum of Agreement was signed by the three organizations last 15 August 2012. 

The half-day tree planting activity received enthusiastic volunteers from BPI Foundation, Energy Development Corporation, Lopez Group Foundation, Philam Foundation, TeamAsia, Toyota Motor Philippines Foundation, UCPB-CIIF Foundation, and the League of Corporate Foundations. 

LCF Trustee Ms. Monette Hamlin welcomed the volunteers and explained that the LCF Forest will be planted with indigenous seedlings of kupang (Parkia Timoriana) and narra (Pterocarpus indicus) within three years. MWC and MWSS, as LCF’s partners, will monitor the site’s growth.
