IPE donates $10,000 to CIS in support of sustainability programs
Isla Petroleum & Energy (IP&E) Holdings LLC recently made a ten-thousand-dollar donation to the University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability (CIS) in support of the recent UOG Conference on Island Sustainability held in April.
The group presented a check to CIS leadership through the University of Guam Endowment Foundation at a ceremony held at the energy group’s first solar panel micro-grid in Upper Tumon.
At the ribbon cutting for the solar micro-grid facility, IP&E and Shell Guam Managing Director Brian Bamba said that Shell is investing in lower carbon technologies throughout the world including renewable energy options.
“We are bringing these energy solutions to our community,” said Bamba. “We look forward to providing renewable energy to more businesses for a more sustainable future.”
UOG CIS and Sea Grant director Austin Shelton believes the donation will go a long way towards helping to continue the growth of the sustainability lessons on Guam.
“We are so grateful for the support from IP&E for this year’s Conference,” said Shelton. “We consider the CIS an earthquake event that fuels, motivates, and inspires other sustainability groups and projects for the rest of the year.”
