HYUNDAI Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), through HARI Foundation Inc. (HFI), announced it had inaugurated the Hyundai Center for Green Innovation (HCGI) together with Gawad Kalinga (GK).
The advanced green innovation center, located at the GK Enchanted Farm in Angat, Bulacan, fuses the ethnicity of the bahay kubo and the Hyundai design philosophy of Fluidic Sculpture. It is envisioned to be the epicenter of ideas, talents, and resources committed to growing a sustainable green economy and community for the Filipino, and stands as a symbol of the evolution and progress of Hyundai and GK’s enduring partnership to build empowered, self-sustaining Filipino communities from the grassroots.
“After seven months of dedicated work, finally, the instrument to fulfill our aspirations for the community and the environment is up,” said Ma. Fe Agudo, president of HFI and HARI. “The architectural elements incorporated in this building symbolize the great dreams we have for our country—stone symbolizes the strength and stability of our advocacy for green innovation, bamboo symbolizes our resilience and unity with the community, and glass stands for the goal of HCGI to be the guide and light in the minds and hearts of our people, especially the youth, to become environmental innovators and stewards of the environment in their communities.”
