FedEx Helps Reforest Sierra Madre Mountain Range with Haribon Foundation


FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, through its global community engagement program FedEx Cares, collaborated with Haribon Foundation to reforest Mt. Batolusong in the south end of the Sierra Madre Mountain range.

FedEx held a tree planting activity on November 18 at Brgy. San Andres in Tanay, Rizal where 40 FedEx volunteers worked together to plant over 1,000 seedlings of indigenous trees.

“At FedEx, we are committed to serving the communities where we live and work. This collaboration with Haribon Foundation is one of the ways we are delivering sustainable solutions to support local community needs,” said Maribeth Espinosa, acting managing director of FedEx Philippines.

From 2001 to 2021, the Philippines lost 1.34 million hectares of tree cover, corresponding to 784 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions.

Reforestation activities help surrounding communities by providing livelihood and restoring ecological health to their natural resources.
