The project according to its website (www.1milliontreesandbeyond.com) aims to plant and nurture one million trees by the year 2011 as a response to the environmental challenges that the country faces today”.

Through the MOA, RCG will contribute to the OMTB Project by sponsoring 200 Kaong seedlings. Additionally, RCG employees together with other OMTB volunteers and community partners will participate in a tree planting activity on September 3, 2011 to plant the 200 seedlings at a site in Indang, Cavite (Philippines).
Present during the MOA signing were representatives from RCG Philippines — Mr. Richard McGonegal (President and Managing Director) and Ms. Gigi Melodias (Human Resource Manager), and from LIFE – Mr. Jorge Buenaventura (Project Director) and Ms. Ging Sison (Volunteer, Steering Committee).
