PNP battles climate change with 10 million trees

QUEZON CITY, Jan. 26 (PIA) -- They are not only out there to battle crimes, but also to fight climate change.

In the next seven months, the 140,000 members of the Philippine National Police will soon be planting 10 million trees all over the country.

PNP chief Nicanor A. Bartolome said, the greening project is the PNP’s gesture of support to the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) of the Climate Change Commission.

“This is a tall order—as tall as the trees we envision to grow, but it is definitely doable, just as it is noble,” said Bartolome.

Bartolome also directed all Police Regional Offices to coordinate with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and concerned local government unit in identifying lands for reforestation.

Meanwhile, the PNP chief also hopes to surpass the 10-million mark as he enjoined the participation of the public to support the project.

“Planting trees is the PNP’s own little way of helping mitigate the effects of climate change to our environment, after all the PNP is not only Maka-Diyos, Makabayan and Makatao, we are also Maka-kalikasan,” Bartolome concluded. (PNP-PIO/RJB/JEG-PIA-NCR)
