Social Responsibility

Caring for Our Community

  • Province of Bataan

    We undertake strategic community programs to benefit thousands of residents in the province:

    • Sulong KaBataan

      In partnership with the Diocese of Balanga City, we established Sulong KaBataan (which freely translates to encouraging the province, and in particular its young people, to move forward).

      Sulong KaBataan is a movement aimed at helping thousands of out-of-school youth of the province by encouraging them to participate in programs to ensure their long-term development, specifically through values formation, technical skills, and leadership training. Sulong KaBataan also creates a platform for discussion among youth leaders and the business community to pave the way for greater opportunities for employment and livelihood. Ultimately, these interventions are seen to help Bataeños become better, more productive, and responsible citizens of Bataan.

    • Sulong KaBarangay

      Sulong KaBarangay is the result of a public-private partnership among the local government of Limay, DSWD, Petron Foundation, Petron Bataan Refinery, and PinoyME Foundation. The program maintains five community sub-projects and one livelihood sub-project by resident volunteers of Barangays Alangan and Lamao, who take part in the seminars and trainings to identify the different issues in their communities that need to be addressed.

      Community projects include:

      • Sulong Kalinisan –seeks to reduce, and manage solid waste in both barangays
      • Sulong Karunungan – aims to establish a training center in Brgy. Lamao through the assistance of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)
      • Sulong Katubigan – aims to aid resident in Sitios Calula, Ogpoy, and Kalula in the construction of a gravitational water system
      • Sulong Kalusugan, Sulong Kinabukasan – a health initiative to address malnutrition and other diseases in the community

    Meanwhile, the parallel sub-project, Sulong Kabuhayan, helps address the livelihood concerns of the residents.

  • Pandacan, Manila

    Petron inaugurated the Petron Community Health Center within the compound of our Pandacan Terminal. A joint effort with the Manila Health Department, and Ospital ng Maynila, the Community Health Center augments the health care programs and services being delivered by nearby barangay health centers by providing consultation and treatment, a clinical laboratory, X-Ray, and ultrasound facilities.

    We also established the Barangay Ecological Solid Waste Management Program for residents of fenceline barangays in Pandacan, Manila.
