Dakay Construction and Development Corporation conducted a joint tree-planting activity together with the Carcar Water District in Tapal, Barangay Guadalupe, Carcar City.
More than 100 employees of both DCDC and Carcar City joined hands in planting 350 Mahogany trees. As an ISO 1400:2015 certified company, DCDC regularly conducts tree-planting activity as part of its environmental protection program.
The activity started with a welcome address by Engr. Edward Remo, the general manager of CWD, who highlighted the generosity of the Dakay family. Remo said in his speech that DCDC allowed Cebeco and CWD to traverse a portion of the property with no lease charges, only requesting that the affected trees be replaced, which led to the tree-planting activity.
Aside from Remo, other officials who joined the activity were Atty. Ra Solomon Enriquez, the CWD in-house counsel, while DCDC was represented by Atty. Raymond Bertulfo (in-house counsel), Engr. Irma Delima, the Engineering Department Head, Procurement Department Head Bernadette Rodriguez, and IMS Management Representative Deputy Leslie Ostrea.
Miss Ostrea also gave the closing message and emphasized how CWD and DCDC share the same environmental protection programs.
The activity ended with a visit and tour of the 24-hectare reforestation area maintained by CWD at Tapal, Guadalupe.
