MANILA — In support of the Marcos administration’s advocacy to prioritize climate action and promote the utilization of alternative energy to lessen the use of fossil fuel and decrease greenhouse gas emissions, Climate Change Commissioner and Brotherhood of Brave Maharlika (BBM) Tigers People’s Organization for Climate Action and Environmental Protection founding chairman Albert Dela Cruz Sr. has gone a step further by tapping resources not only from the local public and private sector but also from investors and pro-environment individuals outside the country.
The climate official recently inducted to the Brotherhood Taiwanese businessman and entrepreneur Jin Tengfei, who is involved in waste-to-energy (WtE) technologies and other pro-environment endeavors partnered with local corporations promoting green business initiatives that would generate ecologically-friendly business investments and green jobs for Filipinos.
Mr. Jin took his oath as Vice President for Taiwan for the BBM Tigers in simple ceremonies and he has been tasked to look into acquiring support and possible investments from fellow Taiwanese investors who will soon be visiting the Philippines to see the feasibility of putting up businesses in the country that include sourcing alternative energy generation to power up agri-industrial ventures.
In the fulfillment of its mandate of formulating sound policies for the country’s climate action in accordance with the commitment of the Philippines to the Paris Agreement of 2011, the BBM Tigers has avowed its full support to the Climate Change Commission (CCC) in pro-environment activities and projects, among them tree-planting initiatives, beach and coastal cleanup operations and other efforts to help us mitigate and adapt to the impact of climate change and achieve resiliency and sustainability.
Commissioner Dela Cruz has been at the forefront of the government’s campaign for climate action and he has already proposed programs and policies that involve just green transition of the utilization of landfill for the garbage disposal to waste-to-energy technologies, promotion of urban gardening and edible landscaping and inclusion of our indigenous peoples (IPs) communities to the National Panel of Technical Experts (NPTE) so they can share their inherent knowledge of environment conservation and preservation.
