SGV Davao works to save the seas

In line with the Firm’s environmental sustainability efforts, SGV Davao participated in the recent 26th International Coastal Cleanup Day of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) at Lizada Village, Brgy. Vicente Hizon in Lanang, Davao City. SGV Davao and Gensan Partner in-charge Alvin Pinpin led the activity.

The team retrieved some 10 sacks of plastic waste materials that, if left uncollected, can contribute to the ocean trash that adversely affects our coastal economies. The International Coastal Cleanup Day started at the beaches of South Padre Island, Texas in 1986 when a concerned citizen organized a cleanup. Since then, the activity has been replicated in various countries around the globe.
