Security personnel of More Electric and Power Corporation (MORE Power) conducted a cleanup drive along Iloilo City coastal areas on Saturday, July 9.
This is part of the distribution utility’s efforts in sustainable environmental protection and preservation in support of the overall goal of the Iloilo City Government.
In a project dubbed as “Guardians of the Environment”, MORE Power’s third-party Stelsen security force held broomsticks and sacks and enthusiastically went to Villa Beach, Calaparan and Arevalo. The project is just one of the environmental initiatives that MORE Power actively implements for the communities. The activity focused on the theme “A greener earth, one community at a time.”
MORE Power’s volunteers from the Security force picked up and collected debris and trash along the coastline of Villa beach. Hours after the clean-up drive, they were able to gather 15 sacks of garbage.
According to MORE Power’s Head of Security, Mr. Rudin Tunting, they want to be part of every community service of the company and become role models in their communities and families.
“Everyone has a role to play in our society, but looking after Mother Nature is everyone’s responsibility,” Tunting said.
The Security team is responsible for securing the facilities and offices of MORE Power and on top of that, they also take an active role in apprehending power pilferers.
Employees and contractors of MORE Power regularly conduct clean-up drives, tree planting activities, and releasing fish fingerlings at the Iloilo River as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility.
