Quest Hotel and Conference Center Cebu signs anew a memorandum of understanding with the Philippine Army to continue its mangrove planting efforts under the National Greening Program. The hotel and Army’s partnership started in December 2017 and the program has allowed the group to plant over 15,000 seedlings to date.
We strongly believe now is the best time to continue and keep our environmental efforts strong. Our dedication to helping create a greener Cebu remains a priority.

This year’s partnership aims to populate at least 6,000 mangroves within the year at Inuboran, Naga City where the greening project is centered. This effort promotes biodiversity conservation, climate change adaptation, and implementing sustainable reforestation projects. “We strongly believe now is the best time to continue and keep our environmental efforts strong. Our dedication to helping create a greener Cebu remains a priority. Even though some of our other environmental initiatives have taken a backseat due to the pandemic, opportunities like this, which is doable given the circumstances and relevant to the time, is crucial and must be continued. We are committed to keep doing it” shares Mia Singson-Leon, General Manager of Quest Hotel Cebu.
“We are very happy to continue this partnership with the Philippine Army for the 3rd year, and extremely pleased to work together with the new commander, LTC Elenita Altamirano, who we share a common vision of protecting and giving back to the environment” she adds.
The first mangrove planting for this year was conducted last February 20. Participated by a total of 30 individuals representing Quest and the Philippine Army, the group managed to plant 1,000 seedlings. A start of a yearlong partnership to continue to promote environmental conservation and stewardship.
