Faces of Alsons: LA, Our Waste Reduction Power Buddy

Guided by our brand promise, ‘We Power with Care,’ we at Alsons Power are committed to environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and economic relevance. These aspirations form the foundation of everything we do, aiming to positively impact the communities we serve and beyond.

Here to share her ‘We Power with Care’ story is Laurice Ann Bautista, Finance and Accounting Associate. Fondly known as LA to her colleagues, Laurice has been with Alsons Power for five years. She is responsible for processing payment requests, billing invoices, and other finance-related matters for one of the company’s business units, Western Mindanao Power Corporation in Zamboanga City.

“The We Power With Care brand promise inspires me not only to complete my tasks but also to think of ways I can make a meaningful impact,” LA shared.

Central to LA’s responsibilities is the frequent use of paper, checks, and envelopes. Despite her daily printing and consumption of these materials, LA commits to sustainability in her own simple ways. She advocates for the reuse of materials to help minimize waste. One such practice involves returning used envelopes to partner banks for reuse. “Sa finance ginagawa ko pong practice, siguro in small ways, katulad nung mga envelopes from banks binabalik po namin kapag nakuha na yung cheque. Finoforward ulit namin agad sa bank para ma-reuse po nila and para ma-reduce din yung waste.”

Demonstrating environmental stewardship, she actively engages in activities that promote sustainable practices. As much as possible, she avoids purchasing products or brands associated with unlawful or unethical practices that harm the environment, ensuring her consumer choices reflect her core values.

“As an employee, siguro we can slowly switch to a sustainable lifestyle like switching to a bamboo toothbrush instead of plastics. Mahirap iwasan po ang mga plastics pero ang maishashare ko na lang din po na meron pong mga facilities na kumukuha po ng mga plastic wastes para ma-build po into kunyari into chairs or tables tapos minsan po tumutulong din sila sa iba pang communities. So ayun yung pwede na lang din natin siguro matulong as an employee,” LA admitted.

A champion of environmental sustainability, LA embodies Alsons Power’s brand promise of ‘We Power with Care’ through her efforts to minimize waste and advocate for sustainable products. As a Finance and Accounting Associate, she not only fulfills her professional duties but also acts as a catalyst for positive change within the company and the wider community.
