Inspiring Better Business Practices
While businesses are important for the growth of the country and its communities, it can also be very harmful to the environment if not self-regulated. Here in Mandaue Foam we take accountability on our impact and we take the responsibility in aiming the integration of People, Planet, and Progress into our business operations.
People, Planet, and Progress
What makes the company are the People and where the company and the People live is in this Planet. We believe that these two hand in hand will help in the Progress of both. We foster a culture in our employees to always play their role in helping the environment.
Mandaue Foam aims to reduce its carbon footprint as a company as well as achieve to replace every single tree that has been cut down to make furniture for every Filipino’s home.
