Visayan Electric conducts coastal clean-up drive in Pooc, Talisay

Visayan Electric employees, Pooc Bantay Dagat, and Talisay City Coast Guard pose for a picture after working hand in hand for the clean-up drive at Maharlika Beach, Pooc, Talisay City. 

In solidarity with the international community in celebrating World Environment Day and World Oceans Day, Visayan Electric conducted a clean-up drive last  June 3 in Barangay Pooc, a coastal barangay in Talisay City.

Together with the Talisay City Coast Guard, Pooc LGU, and Bantay Dagat, more than 60 volunteers from the distribution firm braved the morning heat and collected around 70 sacks of trash, most of which were plastic, along the 1.5-kilometer coast of the said barangay.

Visayan Electric President and COO Raul Lucero, thanked the volunteers and the local government for answering the call to help restore the environment. 

"This is a manifestation of our concern sa paglimpyo sa atong environment. Kani siya supposed to be, dapat magpahinumdom kanato nga dapat kita naay pagpakabana sa atong palibot. Although dili nato malimpiyohan ang tibuok coastline, at least ato kining nasugdan," said Lucero.

Visayan Electric has long established a strong reputation for its extensive range of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, which not only include environmental preservation but also education and livelihood enhancement.

Aside from its commitment to environmental initiatives, Visayan Electric also prioritizes education through programs like Brigada Eskwela and scholarships. It also supports livelihood development with the recently launched Elevate AIDA Project, aimed at enhancing individuals' lives through valuable skills, opportunities, and resources.

Visayan Electric is the second largest electric utility in the Philippines. It serves the cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Talisay, Naga and four municipalities of the greater part of Metro Cebu -- Liloan, Consolacion, Minglanilla and San Fernando.
