Globalport Davao Holds Its First Coastal Clean Up Drive

Globalport Davao, in partnership with various organizations, conducted a successful Coastal Cleanup Drive on April 29, 2023, in the Bunawan District of Davao City. The cleanup drive was participated in by volunteers from Globalport Davao- Port Management of Davao, Philippine Ports Authority, Z. C. Kings Manpower & Janitorial Services Cooperative, and Vertex Maritime International Trading Inc.

The volunteers collected a truckload of various types of garbage, including plastic waste, debris, and other pollutants that have accumulated along the coastlines. This significant amount of waste collected during the activity highlights the importance of continuing such initiatives to preserve the environment and mitigate climate change.

Globalport Davao’s Coastal Cleanup Drive is part of the organization’s efforts and commitment to protecting the environment. The company understands the critical role that it plays in maintaining the balance between economic progress and environmental protection. Globalport is aware of the negative impact of industrial activities on the environment and are taking concrete steps to address this issue.

In line with this commitment, Globalport Davao plans to hold another coastal cleanup in September 2023, along with all the other Globalport ports in celebration of International Coastal Cleanup. This annual event brings together millions of volunteers worldwide to clean up beaches and waterways and raise awareness about the importance of protecting our oceans and marine life.

The success of the Coastal Cleanup Drive in Bunawan District of Davao City demonstrates the collective efforts of individuals and organizations to preserve the environment. It is a reminder that we all have a role to play in protecting the planet and that small actions can make a big difference. The Globalport family will be rolling out more CSR activities as part of its commitment to help achieve a more sustainable future for generations to come.
