True to its tradition of celebrating its anniversary with a socially relevant activity, Isuzu Philippines Corporation has joined forces with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Philippines) to commemorate the Japanese carmaker's 14th anniversary in the Philippines on July 31.
Through this partnership, Isuzu Philippines becomes one of the WWF's corporate partners for its watershed conservation and management project in Ilagan, Isabela, by providing the funds that will allow the environmental organization "to pilot and expand agro-forestry in grasslands, upland corn-growing areas and farms in order to maintain watershed functions and services."
The goals of the project are to establish 40 hectares of agro-forestry land and plant 100 mango seedlings per hectare, to maintain the land through the provision of organic fertilizer and to train farmers in agro-forestry and seedling production.
"We at Isuzu have always subscribed to the principle that every individual and every company should strive to make the world a better place to live in," said Isuzu Philippines president Ryoji Yamazaki. "Since Isuzu proudly calls itself 'Your Responsible Partner', you can rest assured we will uphold that role for as long as we operate."
