KDCI Supports Haribon's Forest Restoration Activities

While most of the human population is focusing on the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, the continuing threats of climate change are happening at an even faster rate.In the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it was revealed that the planet will most likely approach or exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) of warming over the next two decades.So what happens if the world warms up over 1.5 degrees Celsius?Unfortunately, going above 1.5 degrees of warming will expose roughly 14 percent of Earth’s population to severe heat waves. As a result, all of us will be vulnerable to cardiovascular, renal, and respiratory problems.That said, it’s timely and relevant for companies to tackle climate change with a two-pronged approach: mitigation and adaptation. As part of its mitigation efforts, KDCI, in partnership with the Haribon Foundation for the Conservation of Natural Resources Inc., supports forest restoration activities through the Adopt-a-Seedling program.

Under Haribon’s Forests for Life movement, the Adopt-a-Seedling program aims to plant indigenous trees on one million hectares of damaged Philippines forests. Trees absorb around 90% of all carbon emissions, contributing to global warming. Therefore, increasing and maintaining forests is a critical response to climate change.To mark the company’s 10th anniversary, KDCI adopted 10 seedlings which were planted last November 26, 2021. The program also followed seedling production, community training, and nursery installation, livelihood incentives, site preparation, upkeep, and monitoring until the foundation is confident that the seedlings planted will develop on their own.

The forest restoration campaign with Haribon is part of KDCI’s long-term goal of promoting biodiversity and species conservation. For KDCI, this campaign is not a one-time event only but rather a long-term commitment towards environmental stewardship. The company also believes that much more than tree planting is required to rehabilitate damaged landscapes and mitigate climate change.KDCI hopes that once restrictions are lifted and our pandemic situation gets better, the company will be more active in this activity. But in the meantime, let our seed of hope become our first step towards mitigating the continuing threat of climate change.
