One year after an initial tree-planting activity in Carcar City, some 100 employees of Dakay Construction and Development Corporation and the Carcar City Water District conducted another tree-planting activity at Tapal, Barangay Guadalupe in Carcar City on Sept. 21.
A total of 200 Mahogany trees were planted during the program, which is part of the Environmental Protection Programs of DCDC as an ISO 14001:2015 Certified Company. Aside from planting new trees, the participants also checked on the progress of the 350 Mahogany trees that were planted during a similar program in September, 2018.
Engr. Edward Remo, the general manager of CWD welcomed the DCDC employees during the tree-planting activity and again thanked the Dakay family for their generosity in allowing public utilities of CWD and Cebeco to traverse a portion of the Dakay property with no lease charges on CWD and Cebeco. The only agreement was to replace the trees affected, which led to the realization of the first joint-tree planting activity.
DCDC top management was represented by Engr. Petrious Dakay and the EHS team, headed by Atty. Raymond Bertulfo, the management representative. In his closing speech, Engr. Dakay thanked CWD for inviting DCDC and giving the company a chance to do something good for the environment.
