Petrol firm preserves marine life with build-a-reef project

In pursuit of its corporate social responsibility program on environment protection, Phoenix Petroleum, through Phoenix Philippines Foundation, has expanded its Build-A-Reef project to produce more artificial reefs and include more areas in the country as beneficiaries.

Now on its second year, the Foundation led a series of seven artificial reef-building and laying activities.

A total of 75 artificial reefs made from skeleton dome-type frames covered with cement and lime sand were built by Phoenix Petroleum employees and partners from the Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary, and the local community.

The reefs were donated to marine-protected areas in Davao City, General Santos City, Misamis Oriental, and Cebu City.

“As an emerging major oil company in the Philippines, we acknowledge the role we play in the communities we serve as well as our environmental and social responsibilities. We take these obligations very seriously that’s why for the past years, we have been actively promoting and contributing to environmental awareness and protection as part of our CSR campaigns,” Phoenix Petroleum Chief Operating Officer Henry Albert Fadullon said. “In the coming years, we will continue leading and expanding more community-friendly projects such as the Build-A-Reef activity.” (pr)
