Event Details

The Sustainability Committee, in collaboration with Poseidon International, One Earth - One Ocean (Oeoo), and Holcim, is pleased to announce its upcoming July meeting focused on Marine Conservation and Pollution Reduction. This event will provide attendees with an exclusive opportunity to visit The Circular Explorer, a pioneering 100% solar-powered recycling catamaran actively removing marine plastic waste from Manila Bay.


The Circular Explorer On-Board Show and Tell

The event will commence with a guided tour of The Circular Explorer. Attendees will be divided into two batches, with each group consisting of 10-15 participants. The on-board "show and tell" will last between 20 to 30 minutes. During this time, key representatives from One Earth - One Ocean, Holcim, and the local government will explain:

  • The vessel's advanced waste collection systems.
  • Its solar-powered capabilities.
  • How it gathers critical water data to monitor and protect marine ecosystems.


Panel Discussion: Opportunities and Challenges in Waste Management

After the tour, there will be a panel discussion on "Opportunities and Challenges in Waste Management." This session will feature insights from:

  • Daniel Scheler, Executive Manager at One Earth - One Ocean (Oeoo) Manila
  • Hector Manuel Jon Brizuela, Program Manager at Philippine Transmarine Carriers, Inc.
  • Christine Belen, Project Manager at Circular Explorer
  • Fidel Ventura, Area Director of RiverRecycle Philippines
  • Elfritzson M. Peralta, Msc, Faculty Researcher, Program Coordinator, Organismic and Environmental Biology at the Department of Biological Sciences, College of Science at University of Santo Tomas

These experts will delve into the current state of waste management, highlighting innovative solutions and addressing the challenges that need to be overcome to enhance sustainability practices.


Due to limited capacity, we are only able to accommodate one (1) representative per company.


Join us on Wednesday, 31 July 2024, from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM at Universal Grace Trading Corporation, CCP Complex, Pasay. This is a unique opportunity to witness sustainability in action and engage in meaningful discussions about our environment.
