BCDA pursues with enthusiasm its various corporate social responsibility programs—reaching not only people who have been directly affected by its undertakings but also those who share in the organization's aspirations for a more caring, more nurturing Philippine society.
Greening SCTEX: BCDA pursued environmental projects like its “Greening SCTEX Program” that aims to grow 50,000 trees along the entire stretch of the toll road in five years. Also, the program is designed to forge partnerships with corporations and other organizations into adopting a kilometer each of the 94-km stretch of the SCTEX for tree-planting and maintenance activities through the years.The kick-off ceremony in July 24, 2008 saw some 2,000 Narra trees planted in the vicinity of the Clark North B Interchange in Barangay Dolores, Mabalacat, Pampanga.
Housing Projects : As a major contributor to the National Shelter Program (NSP) of the Philippine government, BCDA has a mandate to allot 12% of its asset disposition proceeds to the NSP.
Community Relations: Part of BCDA’s task in the construction of the SCTEX was to make sure that the needs of all project-affected communities are adequately and promptly addressed. Leading these initiatives is the SCTEX Community Relations Unit, which has helped facilitate dialogues with project-affected people (lot owners and informal settlers / tillers) on issues related to right-of-way acquisition, access and livelihood.
BCDA, in coordination with the local government units of Central Luzon, continues to perform several medical missions in project-affected areas such as Bataan and Pampanga. Livelihood programs were also launched in Tarlac in coordination with the Land Bank of the Philippines.
Assistance to LGUs and Other Agencies: Other infrastructure built by BCDA in support of local communities are the Php30 million road widening of the Gapan-San Fernando-Olongapo Road in Pampanga; and the Php1.9 million renovation of the Nature Pavilion Center in Dinalupihan, Bataan, among others.
