Private firms helping restore Boracay
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) welcomes the participation of several private firms in the government’s efforts to rehabilitate Boracay Island in Aklan. DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu recently signed memorandums of agreement (MOAs) with Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines Inc. and JG Summit Petrochemical Corp. (JGSPC) acknowledging their contributions in cleaning up the resort island. Coca-Cola donated a surf rake or a tractor-towed beach cleaner, while JGSPC is bringing back to life one of Boracay’s wetlands.
