Hedcor reaffirms commitment to environmental sustainability

For AboitizPower, environmental sustainability is more than just providing Cleanergy, its brand for renewables. It is a long-standing commitment to taking good care of the environment through responsible business operations and strong partnerships with its host communities.

As a result of these efforts, the company’s run-of-river hydro business unit Hedcor was recognized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) – Mt. Province as an active partner in the National Greenery Program, as well as in establishing, maintaining, and protecting the forest plantations in Upper Sabangan and Upper Bauko in Mt. Province.

To date, Hedcor has planted over 300,000 trees in Mt. Province alone. Majority of which are fruit bearing trees, which not only help in carbon sequestration but also serve as sources of food and livelihood for the locals. All the trees planted also serve as water aquifers or part of soil stabilization measures. In total, Hedcor has planted more than 3,000,000 trees with an 89% survival rate since 2004.

Apart from reforestation initiatives, Hedcor and its community partners are also actively engaged in other environmental sustainability programs such as watershed management, river clean-up drive, information education campaign, farmers’ training, and biodiversity conservation.

Hedcor takes pride in its continuing commitment to advancing business and communities while protecting the environment. Particularly for the Sabangan Hydropower Plant, the first hydro facility in Mt. Province, DENR’s recognition highlights Hedcor’s contribution to the community.

The 14-MW Sabangan Hydropower Plant delivers 55 gigawatt hours of Cleanergy to the Luzon grid annually.
