Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC), Metro Pacific Investments Foundation (MPIF), and Huawei Philippines signed a memorandum of understanding with Deed of Donation to support various Community Impact programs under the auspices of Gabay Kalikasan. Gabay Kalikasan has been adopted by MPIC as part of its sustainability initiatives.
The partnership is anchored on the shared goal of MPIC, MPIF, and Huawei of protecting the environment with the help of cutting-edge technology solutions like the Internet of Thing, artificial intelligence, and the cloud to help mitigate illegal logging in protected watershed and forest areas, thereby helping to protect the ecosystem.
Speaking during the event, Chaye Cabal-Revilla, chief finance officer and chief sustainability officer, MPIC, emphasized the importance of collaboration in promoting sustainability and bringing about positive change in communities.
“I’ve always believed that sustainability is a collective responsibility. It is only through us working together that we will be able to achieve a pervasive impact to make a difference in the world,” said Cabal-Revilla. “With the environmental necessity for us to protect Mother Earth, Huawei’s contribution will be of great help to the communities that we’ll be putting this into.”
“We at MPIF feel an even stronger sense of responsibility and accountability to further improve our programs and serve a greater purpose,” said Melody del Rosario, president, MPIF. “We are privileged to have a partner in Huawei Technologies, a company that is not only reliable but equally determined to achieve our goals for the present and for the future through Gabay Kalikasan.”
Huawei shares the same sentiment and advocacies as MPIC and MPIF, especially in environmental protection and education.
“MPIC is known for its effective and long-term sustainability programs. Huawei Philippines would like to join MPIC’s programs and be part of the great contributors to the Philippines,” said Daniel Guo, VP, Huawei Philippines. “Huawei looks forward to having a continuing partnership with MPIC and MPIF. “We hope we can do better for the Philippines and we can learn better from Metro Pacific.”
Technology and sustainability
MPIF’s strategic program is geared toward three fronts of social infrastructure: education, environment, and economic empowerment.
Huawei promotes the use of technology to support sustainability so that no one gets left behind in the digital world. Huawei’s strategy centers on digital inclusion, security and trustworthiness, environmental protection, and a healthy and harmonious ecosystem, which are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Together, MPIC, MPIF, and Huawei hope to uplift the lives of Filipinos and contribute to the sustainable development of local communities and the Philippines as a whole.
