In a strong display of commitment to environmental sustainability, around 50 SMEC employees recently laced up their running shoes to participate in the “Takbo Para Sa Kalikasan” (Earth Run) 2023 held on 26 November at Liwasang Ulalim, CCP Complex, Pasay City. The event featured three run categories – 5K, 10K, and 25K – and was organised by the Green Media Events Company.

Earth Run, the fourth of the elemental series (Fire, Water, Air, and Earth Run) of “Takbo Para Sa Kalikasan”, is an annual benefit run advocating for environmental preservation. The event marked its fifth year, with SMEC joining as an affiliate partner to support Green Media Events’ efforts in inspiring community involvement to address the pressing issues of global warming.

 

This is a continuous effort of the organiser’s environmental initiatives, with active support from corporate sponsors like SMEC playing a crucial role in their success. Initiatives include tree planting, coastal clean-up, recycling, BYOB (bring your own bottle), saving ‘pawikan’ creatures (sea turtles), supporting homemade resources, donating to conservation projects, plogging activities, educating about climate change, conducting share-a-care programs, and extending corporate partnerships to amplify these efforts.

 

SMEC’s participation in Earth Run 2023 not only reflects our employees’ personal commitment to a greener future but also underscores the significance of corporate involvement in environmental initiatives. By taking strides, both literally and metaphorically, our employees contribute to the collective effort of safeguarding our planet for future generations.

 

Ricardo Yuzon Jr, SMEC Country Manager Philippines, expressed his sincere gratitude to the staff who volunteered their time for Earth Run 2023. He said, “I extend my heartfelt thanks to our team for their enthusiastic participation in Earth Run 2023. Your dedication to this cause
