Biodiversity Preservation

Coral Bay Nickel Corporation advocates biodiversity enhancement programs to improve not only its surrounding environment but also the other areas within the province of Palawan by forging partnerships with various community sectors, industry colleagues, and government agencies.

On March 15, 2022, the company entered into an agreement with the municipal government of Bataraza, Palawan for the implementation of the Integrated Coastal Resource Management Program (ICRM) to promote the sustainable management of marine resources. This initiative involved the local coastal community volunteers who went through a planning workshop and eventually deputized as fish wardens. 

Regular tree planting activities were also conducted way beyond the vicinity of the municipality of Bataraza where the plant site of CBNC is located. Such as the ones held at the Western Philippines University - Quezon Campus on June 22, 2023 and Palawan Quicksilver Mines Inc. in Puerto Princesa City on September 13, 2022.

The Monitoring Team (MMT) led by the Mines and Geoscience Bureau and Environmental Management Bureau of DENR, together with the local government units, people’s organizations, and other stakeholders, conduct quarterly site inspection to verify the company’s environmental performance and improvements.
