Building The  QNET Philippines Green Legacy With Ecomatcher

The QNET Philippines Green Legacy is being built tree by tree to ensure we do our bit to make the world a better place for the coming generation. In case you missed it, QNET is practising RYTHM by planting a green legacy to address some of the problems caused by global warming and climate change. In the Philippines, QNET has teamed up with Fostering Education and Environment for Development (FEED) to grow, preserve and protect the biodiversity in the country.

In collaboration with Ecomatcher and FEED, QNET will help reforest over 9000 hectares of indigenous forests in the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. The QNET Philippines Green Legacy will not only grow tree species that will help with our communal biodiversity goals but will also help provide livelihood opportunities for local communities.
