GMEC initiative on environmental conservation

GNPower Mariveles Energy Center Ltd. Co. (GMEC) held a simple turnover ceremony of the 8- year-running reforestation program with the Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) on September 05, 2022.

The Sitio Karagatan (SK) reforestation program for the 48-hectare non-watershed forest area started on June 2014. It is under the Memorandum Agreement (MOA) between AFAB and GMEC, which enabled GMEC to perform its reforestation project for six (6) years. The initial MOA was extended with amendments and expanding the validity of reforestation activities until August 31, 2022, resulting in an 8-year period to maintain the reforestation site. GMEC has allocated a budget of P8,750,000.00 for the whole reforestation development.

Since 2018, there were 31,236 assorted trees planted and approximately 70,280 cashew fruits were harvested. Furthermore, there were 7 fixed-term workers hired since 2014 and 98 contractual workers during the summer to planting season.


The AFAB administrator Emmanuel Pineda, and GMEC President & CEO Dennis Jordan took over the ceremony. The hard work of the magnificent seven (7) reforestation workers was also acknowledged and AFAB committed to providing continuous job employment for them.

The program has been completed and ended, but GMEC’s commitment to nature conservation will continue along with its corporate social responsibility.


As for the GMEC, this is not the end of an eight-year program but this is just the beginning of a more purposeful contribution to society… Our purpose is to ignite a transformation, yours is to let the burning sustain and continue.

Dennis Jordan
President & CEO, GMEC - GNPD
