FDC Misamis has partnered with Oriental & Motolite Corporation and the Philippine Business for Social Progress for the Balik Baterya Program to further its commitment to environmental stewardship.
Balik Baterya Program is O&MC's flagship project which aims to provide a platform for the private sector to dispose of used lead-acid batteries properly (ULABs).
These batteries contain lead and sulfuric acid. If improperly discarded, ULABs have a devastating impact on the environment as they can contaminate waterways and pose a potential threat to human health.
The Balik Baterya is a two-pronged endeavor that provides financial benefits to supporting companies where O&MC offers cash value for every ULABs donated.
The proceeds can be used as an additional source of CSR funds to implement socio economic projects within communities.
