Continuing its drive to promote sustainability efforts and practices in the country and around the world, Brother International Philippines Corporation recently struck a partnership with marine conservation organization SEA Institute.
The organization held a two-day corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity in which participants learned more about marine biodiversity and responsible fishing in the Verde Island Passage (VIP) in southern Luzon.
The CSR activity was held at Sepoc Beach in Tingloy, Batangas on the first day and Eagle Point Resort in Mabini, Batangas on the second. The SEA Institute discuss their mission to conserve the VIP’s biodiversity and increase awareness for their cause. They did so through fun activities for both adults and children, water sports such as kayaking and swimming, as well as professional scuba diving training for adults at the Eagle Point Resort.
“We’re glad to be more aware of and taking efforts to conserve the natural beauty we have in places such as the Verde Island Passage, and we hope to do more CSR activities like these in various places in the Philippines,” Brother Philippines President Glenn Hocson said.
Brother employees left Batangas with a greater appreciation and understanding of the amazing natural biodiversity present in the VIP and Philippine seas, as well as better awareness of what everyone can do to help preserve our natural resources.
