More than 500 Wells Fargo Enterprise Global Services (EGS) – Philippines team members participated in the second 5K Walk/Run/Ride event held February 6 in McKinley Hill. This annual event promotes walking, running, and cycling to work as greener and healthier commute options.
As part of Wells Fargo’s efforts to raise awareness of the impact of everyday actions on the environment, the Walk/Run/Ride event illustrates how we can reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier environment. It also helps team members achieve added health and wellness benefits by encouraging them to stay active.
“Wells Fargo is committed to a better environment. In everything we do, we consider the impact to the community, to the environment, and to our team members,” said Denis McGee, chief administrative officer of Wells Fargo EGS – Philippines. “This Walk/Run/Ride 5K event, for which we encourage our team members to participate, is a great example of our environmental and societal commitment. ”
Wells Fargo EGS – Philippines has an active ‘Runners and Riders’ network who regularly take part in events around Metro Manila. To further promote cycling to work, offices in McKinley Hill have exclusive parking zones for bicycles.
Speaking at the event, Nicole Tria Tirona, head of Corporate Sustainability for the company, said, “We are constantly looking for new ways to minimize energy consumption, use renewable sources of energy, and inspire others to do the same. Our volunteers consistently work to educate team members about greener living through various initiatives, look for opportunities to enhance current processes to make them greener, and also participate in external events which help the environment.”
With Wells Fargo’s focus on environmental stewardship, the 5K Walk/Run/Ride event is just one of many examples of its commitment to the cause of healthy and green living. Driven by the credo of ‘reduce, reuse and recycle,’ the Wells Fargo facilities are sustainable sites with high-performing features, and strict energy and resource management. The Wells Fargo Center in Taguig City is LEED-certified, with Gold and Platinum ratings for its interior and exterior, respectively.
