MPTC Goes Blue in support of UNICEF World Children’s Day celebration

TRECE MARTIRES, CAVITE (PIA) – In celebration of World Children’s Day, the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) together with its family of companies is one with UNICEF in the commemoration of the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on November 20.

To show its support as an ally of UNICEF, MPTC structures owned by its subsidiaries will be lighted blue to celebrate World Children’s Day.

North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corp., will go blue by lighting its headquarters at Balintawak, Caloocan City; MPTC’s subsidiary for South Luzon expressways CAVITEX and CALAX will light up its LEED Gold Certified green headquarters MPT South Hub in Imus, Cavite; MPT Mobility, MPTC’s arm for smart and sustainable expressway mobility services, will light NLEX Drive and Dine in blue. In the Visayas region, the iconic CCLEX will be lit blue to represent CCLEC’s solidarity to UNICEF’s advocacy.

MPTC President and CEO Rodrigo Franco said, “MPTC’s support to UNICEF in celebrating World Children’s Day is a milestone for our company. This highlights the responsibility of businesses like ours to adopt policies and develop programs that will promote children’s rights.”

“MPTC prides itself in providing safe and convenient roads and highways, and necessarily, children accompanied by their parents who use our facilities. It is our responsibility to promote the right program that would protect and enhance the convenience of these children,” added Franco.

In November 2021, MPTC signed a multi-year agreement with UNICEF to help promote the safety of children on the road by supporting 100 schools in high-risk areas, potentially reaching 20,000 children. (RBF/PIA-Cavite with reports from MPT South Management Corp.)
