The Fog Catcher and Water Harvesting Program is a verified gold standard (VGS) approach aimed at addressing water scarcity, environmental degradation, and community development through innovative technology of fog harvesting. It seeks to provide a sustainable water source, inspire environmental stewardship, and can be replicated across the country.

The pilot beneficiary of the program is Haights Farm, also known as Sakura Park, located in Atok, Benguet Province, Cordillera Administrative Region, Republic of the Philippines.

The program aims to augment the community’s water supply through fog catchers, implement green technology with minimal ecological footprint, and build sustainable farming communities by engaging with corporate or enterprise businesses and organizations.

Expected outcomes include increased availability of clean water, reduced dependence on traditional water sources, enhanced ecosystem engagement, contribution to local farming efforts against climate change, and provision of data for decarbonization initiatives.

The program offers pathways to assist HR in overcoming challenges such as lack of standardized CSR metrics, cost efficiency for HR programs, and enhancing corporate branding and reputation equity.

The fog catcher is designed with a rectangular body and trapezium top shape for stability, easy assembly similar to LEGO, no need for heavy/electrical equipment, modular design for flexibility, and durable materials for longevity. It efficiently harvests fog, providing a reliable water source in areas where water is scarce.

The program includes design engineering innovation for safety, professional medical practitioners for emergency care, and an onboarding process and fleet management for safe transportation.

It emphasizes the strategic investment of partnering with the program, addressing HR challenges, team building with impact, enhancing CSR and ESG narrative, and supporting local agriculture.

Technical details include materials used (stainless steel, polypropylene mesh net), dimensions, color, lot and surface area, lifespan, and water harvest average. The fog catcher can yield an average of 20–25 liters of water a day.

The itinerary includes activities such as en route to the farm venue, check-in and briefing, breakfast, orientation, fog catcher building, lunch, debriefing activity, apéritifs/sunset cocktail, bonfire and cultural entertainment, and departure to Manila. It aims to foster teamwork, communication, and value formation on environmental and social impact.
