As part of PNOC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the PNOC Industrial Park (PIP) donated paper and printer ink to three schools in Barangay Batangas Dos, namely, Batangas Dos Elementary School, Bayview Elementary School, and Mariveles National High School.
The donated items will be used to print school modules since they are using the modular distance learning method, not online learning. The school representatives were grateful as these items came at an opportune time. Leading the CSR donation were PNOC Industrial Park representatives, Robert Villa and Renee Rose Costrua, in behalf of PNOC President Reuben Lista, SVP Graciela Barleta, and Park Manager Edwin Celzo.
This is the PNOC Industrial Park’s second CSR activity for the year; a Coastal Cleanup was conducted last March along the PIP shoreline–which collected more than 1,000 kilos of various wastes.
BATAAN – The PNOC Industrial Park conducted a park-wide coastal clean-up at the Park’s Construction Jetty shorelines on March 18, 2021.
1,016.14 kilograms of plastic, rubber, Styrofoam, glass bottles, and other residual garbage were collected from the clean-up drive.
A total of 76 participants from PNOC, Petron, NPC Alliance Corporation (NPCA), TeaM Energy Corporation, Orica Philippines, Inc., Enclosure Systems Specialists, Inc., and Servicio Filipino, Inc. joined the activity.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, PNOC Park Manager Edwin Celzo, accompanied by Eng. Lai Ngojo, Robert Villa, Fitz Magno, Renee Costrua, Jennifer Lacap, and Julie Ann Victorio, donated 50 school supply kits to the Ayta Magbukun Community, Bgy. Biaan, Mariveles, Bataan. This was done in coordination with the Making A Kinship with the Indigenous (MAKI) Project Inc., a foundation formed to promote public awareness on indigenous people.
Through the initiative of PNOC Board Chairperson DOE Secretary Alfonso Cusi and the support of PNOC President Reuben S. Lista, PNOC employees, together with volunteers from Duterte’s Kitchen and the local government, extended the Christmas spirit by giving gift bags to 1,000 families belonging to the Dumagat Tribe from Rodriguez, Rizal.
The gift bags which were part of the Handog Pagmamahal Project of Secretary Cusi contained rice, spaghetti packs, cans of meat, and chocolate biscuits for each of the 1,000 beneficiaries from the upland barangay of Macabud in Rodriguez.
As the Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) was emerging in the country in 2020, the national government responded with Republic Act No. 11469, also known as the “Bayanihan to Heal as One Act”. Under this program, President Rodrigo R. Duterte called for the full cooperation of all government agencies, and the PNOC Group of Companies answered the call by remitting a total of seven billion pesos (Php7.0 B) to the National Treasury. Of the Php7.0 B remitted, five billion pesos (Php5.0 B) came from the parent company’s accumulated earnings.
Moreover, the Board of Directors approved a budget of five million pesos for PNOC to undertake programs to reduce the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. Compliant with the GCG and COA rules and/or guidelines, the company implemented the PNOC Health, Safety and Food Aid Project under the PNOC CSR-GAD Program.
In this project, PNOC was able to distribute rice subsidies to the SOS Children’s Villages located at PNOC’s areas of operation, to the Mabini, Batangas, and Mariveles, Bataan local government units (LGUs), and to the affected PNOC service providers.
Vitamins, surgical masks, and food packs were also distributed to selected provincial health facilities, government hospitals, frontliners, and PNOC service providers.
The implementation period spanned from the last week of May up to July, 2020.
