Beyond profits, the MacroAsia Group is committed to sustainable development and the creation of shared values, especially among its stakeholders and in the community where it operates. Corporate social responsibility is embedded in its mission and vision statements.
Strong Focus on Education
The Parent Company sustained its sponsorship of scholars in Palawan. So far, this program produced 63 graduates from the local government units (LGU) and indigenous people (IP). The program covers the full tuition fee and monthly stipends of the deserving students during the school term.
Our subsidiary, MacroAsia Catering (MACS), has continued its partnership with various schools and universities through the Student Tour Program. In this Program, its officers and selected employees provide lecture sessions on food handling and safety standards to the student visitors, including their teachers and representative school administration personnel. MACS also allows the visitors to actually observe the operations inside the facility to complete their appreciation of the catering standards. Since the start of the program in 2008, around 21,625 students all over the country had already participated in this tour and had seen our catering facility. The Program had become so popular that MACS had to book requests of schools and universities in advance. This undertaking have been contributory to the image of MacroAsia being widely known as a food services provider in the Philippines.
Our affiliate, Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP), also had its eyes on education-related programs. Through its dedicated CSR arm along with the direct involvement of its employees, LTP has completed and turned over 61 education-based projects to date. These projects include construction of school buildings, facilities, donations of school supplies and textbooks, and technology support. This 2015, LTP, in partnership with HELP Alliance had completed a construction of two (2) buildings in Tacloban City, Leyte consisting of two classrooms each and other facilities. The inauguration and handover was last June 5.
Nursery and Reforestation Project
MacroAsia continues to support its nursery in Linao, Brooke’s Point Palawan. This nursery has produced about 50,000 seedlings for planting so far during the last 5 years, an average of 10,000 seedlings per year. These seedlings were donated to tree planting partners in Palawan, which are comprised of the local government units and schools in the area.
Our subsidiary in Solano, Nueva Vizcaya, SNV Resources Development Corporation, also partnered with the Local Government Unit of Solano in various tree planting activities to help protect the watershed of the Magat River, which is the source of drinking water for the town.
Blood Letting Activities and Outreach Program
MACS has always been steadfast in providing service to its customers. As a service-oriented company, it genuinely cares for others and is dedicated to serve for the common good of the people. With such dedication, MACS assisted Philippine National Red Cross in the conduct of a Blood Donation Activity in years 2014 and 2015 at the MACS Training Room. A total of 172 blood donors contributed about 77,000 cc to the blood bank.
