    The collaborations between Pilipinas Shell-Construction and Road and its new partners were formalized via three separate memoranda of understanding.

    The company also provides equipment management solutions that make it easier to manage productivity, improve carbon footprint and reduce operating costs; as well as a carbon compensation program that enables companies to balance unavoidable emissions through nature-based projects.
