CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY





PGEP is a socially responsible company committed to the betterment of the community. The Payatas biogas plant supplies more than 39,000 kWh (kilowatt-hour) of free electricity to streetlights in the periphery of the dump site, contributing to the reduction of crime in the area. Free electricity is also supplied by the plant to special projects like Quezon City’s “Plantsahan ng Bayan” (city facility for ironing of clothes) and the Styro/Plastic Densifier Pilot Project of the Philippine Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

In addition, PGEP donates a share of its revenues from the sale of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) or carbon credits, generating additional financial resources for Quezon City’s social programs in Payatas. The city will earn an additional share of the revenues to be derived from the sale of electricity when the planned 1 MW (megawatt) power capacity expansion is implemented by PGEP.

PGEP has conducted a gift giving activity for the poorest residents of Payatas in cooperation with Feed the Hungry USA. The company is planning other programs in cooperation with other non-profit groups to improve the lives of people living around the dump site.

Because of the Payatas biogas project, Quezon City has earned numerous recognitions. It was the first Local Government Unit in the country to implement a CDM project on solid waste disposal and handling.   

The Payatas biogas to energy project is in consonance with Republic Act 9513, known as the Renewable Energy Act of 2008, which promotes investment in renewable energy while effectively preventing or reducing harmful emissions. It meets the goal of balancing the country’s economic growth and development with the protection of the country’s health and the environment.
