Mission for More Mangroves
Lian, Batangas – As part of its annual commitment to the community, Herma Group with its subsidiaries, Herma Corporation, Herma Shipping and Transport Corporation, Flagship Petroleum Carriers, and Cleanway Environmental Management Solutions Inc. started to add 3000 more seedlings in an area allocated for mangroves southwest of Manila. Every year, the group of companies joins together in this environmental mission. With this year’s theme, Puno ng Pag-ibig para sa Kalikasan, officers and employees get their hands dirty as they planted love and hope for nature supporting the rich biodiversity in Sitio Kayreyna, Barangay Lumaniag. The location is a protected mangrove area under the DENR and the LGU of Lian. Since 2018, countless mangroves were planted by academic institutions and private companies. Environmental experts and local people help in maintaining and preserving the shoreline now slowly covered in lush marine vegetation.
