Sustainable Agroforestry

As part of our commitment to reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions, our team in the Philippines recently donated over 21,000 seedlings of various tree species to the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB), which is a branch of the Philippine Department of Environment Natural Resources (DENR).

The seedlings were reared at the OceanaGold Central Nursery located in Barangay Tucod, approximately three kilometers from Didipio Mine. The nursery is operated by OceanaGold Sustainable Agroforestry Inc. (OGSAI) which was established to operate and manage the delivery of all of our reforestation commitments and obligations in the Philippines.

OGSAI’s vision is to replace the trees removed as part of the establishment and mining at Didipio Mine, while also establishing a successful economic enterprise which will provide sustainable benefits beyond the life of mine.
