Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) once again showed its support to the advocacy of Clean Air Asia (CAA), along with the City Government of Marikina and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in providing better air quality and healthier living.
In line with the CAA’s Integrated Program for Better Air Quality (IBAQ) in Asia, MMPC donated a pure electric vehicle i-MiEV to DENR. DENR then lend this electric vehicle to Marikina City to serve as the key instrument in monitoring the ambient air quality, as well as a tool in developing strategic emission reduction measures in the said area. As such, the i-MiEV will be incorporated with a mobile air-sensing device and will drive around pre-defined routes within Marikina City.
The turnover of the electric vehicle was held at Marikina City Hall, attended by Hon. Serafin Y. Bernardino – City Councilor of Marikina, Ms. Gloria Buenaventura – City Environmental Officer, Engr. Jundy Del Socorro of DENR Air Quality Management Section, Mr. Alan Silayan – Program Director of CAA, Mr. Aloysius Santos – VP for Business Development of First Gen Corporation and Mr. Renato S. Lampano – Vice President for Corporate Public Relations of MMPC.
If you can recall, MMPC has been an active advocate of environmental sustainability and this is not the first time that the company expressed its support towards cleaner air. In fact, the Japanese carmaker had turned over i-MiEV, Outlander PHEV, and electric chargers to DTI in May and DENR Cebu in August this year.
Apart from donating environment-friendly cars, MMPC also supports the Bamboo and Mangrove plantation project of DENR, as well as a joint study for the strategic adoption of EVs and reduction of carbon emissions through a research organization that includes the top universities in the country.
