Imperial Tobacco is supporting a wildlife conservation project to help save endangered species in the Philippines.
The company, which has its headquarters in Bristol, U.K., is backing a scheme led by the Bristol Zoo to preserve the unique forest habitat of the island of Negros.
During their time in the Philippines, the zoo’s Neil Maddison and Nigel Simpson met with the factory management team at Imperial’s Philippine Bobbin Corp. subsidiary near Manila to explain how the project team was working with the local community to ensure that residents and wildlife could live alongside each other.
“We have employees here who come from Negros and are keen to help support these activities,” said factory manager Carlos Saez-Diez Reberdito.
“The work not only focuses on the conservation of endangered species but also the island’s environment and people.”
