Jessen enjoyed his biking activity in Guimaras. “Nasadyahan gid ako sa Sikaran sa Guimaras (I enjoyed the Sikaran in Guimaras),” Jessen said.
“I will continue to bike in Sikaran and in other parts of the country to stress the need for everyone to do his or her share in countering climate change and in protecting the environment,” he said.
The EU has been supporting various energy efficiency actions under its SWITCH Project. Some initiatives supported by the EU in the country include the provision of technical advice to support the Philippine National Roadmap for Energy Efficiency (PNREE). The PNREE aims to generate 30 percent energy savings in the Philippines by 2030.
