CSU-PCEMO launches Carbon Sink Enhancement Program with 2,532 native trees

< >

June 19, 2024 – The Pollution Control and Environmental Management Office (PCEMO) of the university successfully launched the University Carbon Sink Enhancement Program, marked by the planting 2,532 native trees at the Basag and Antongalon boundaries of the university. This initiative pushes to uplift our Golden Paddlers’ commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.

750 Sagimsim, 792 Lanutan, 78 Lipote, 463 Pipi, and 449 Kalantas trees were collectively planted by the graduating Sanghaya Class of 2024, postgraduate students, CEAS members, and NSRC volunteers. This effort aligns with several key legislative frameworks and mandates, including Executive Order No. 26 (National Greening Program), Republic Act No. 10176 (Arbor Day Act), and Republic Act No. 9729 (Climate Change Act). Additionally, it meets the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) conditions, which require tree planting to mitigate vegetation loss and bolster reforestation efforts. The program also adheres to CHED Caraga Memorandum Orders No. 38 and No. 68, Series of 2022, as part of the "Growing One Million Trees Advocacy Program,” involving the graduating students, NSTP, CES, and OSAS in all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) within the Caraga Region.

The PCMO intends to conduct this tree-planting activity annually, furthering its commitment to enhancing the environment and promoting sustainable practices. │via pcemo/PICO
