ALLIANZ PNB Life reaffirmed its commitment to sustainability and securing Filipinos’ futures by renewing its partnership with the Kabang Kalikasan ng Pilipinas Foundation Inc. (KKPFI), also known as the World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines (WWF-PH). The two organizations signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) this month.
Present at the MoA signing were Allianz PNB Life’s CEO and President Alexander Grenz and Chief Marketing Officer Gino Riola, alongside WWF-PH’s Executive Director Katherine Custodio and OIC for Resource Generation and Partnerships Cloda Marie Urquico.
KKPFI is a nonprofit organization under the WWF involved in the conservation and preservation of the environment in the Philippines. It aims to promote corporate social responsibility by forming strategic partnerships with corporations that share the same social awareness, such as Allianz PNB Life.
Together, the two organizations will work toward uplifting the social and economic well-being of the Filipino people through KKPFI’s Food Shed Farming Enterprise Project. The project’s objective is to ensure food security and community resilience, as well as increase financial inclusion and capacity-building by developing community-managed food sheds.
“Allianz PNB Life is passionately dedicated to building a more confident future for Filipinos, which is why we are grateful for the renewal of our partnership with KKPFI,” said Grenz. “We have worked closely with them in the past through the Food Shed Farming Enterprise Project via our new offering, Allianz Protect, and we are excited to begin the establishment of two new foodsheds in Mindanao. It is a concrete display of both organizations’ commitment to the empowerment of the Filipino people.”
Allianz Protect is a comprehensive and high-value insurance protection solution with a variety of coverages that also allows policyholders to contribute to the Food Shed Farming Enterprise Project. For every policy purchased, P500 will be donated to the campaign and an additional P500 donation will be incurred every year the policy is active.
“Allianz Protect engages our customers and policyholders and allows them to take meaningful action towards helping secure food sources for beneficiaries,” Grenz added.
