Davao City, Philippines—February 21, 2017 – Teleperformance, the world’s leading provider of outsourced omnichannel customer experience management services, recently held a mangrove tree planting activity at the Vanishing Island in Samal, Davao City.
Through the Citizen of the Planet, the environmental corporate social responsibility arm of Teleperformance, sixty (60) volunteer employees from Teleperformance Davao successfully planted over 200 mangrove propagules in Vanishing Island, a protected marine reserve.
Teleperformance Davao Site Director Marte Nuyda and Human Resource Manager Josie Sacala led the team of volunteers composed of top-performing employees. The activity takes on a unique celebration of employee recognition through the promotion of a greener environment.
Mangroves present many intrinsic benefits to the ecosystem. They provide shelter and food for aquamarine animals and migratory shorebirds, serve as deterrent to storm surges, tides and currents, reduce water pollution and prevent soil erosion in coastal communities.
Teleperformance Philippines recognizes the importance of having a clean environment. The mangrove tree planting activity is part of the company’s environmental rehabilitation and protection initiatives across the Philippines, which also includes the cleaning and greening of the Marikina River and the La Mesa Eco Park and the implementation of energy-saving measures in all its 18 business sites in the country.
