COMP president and Benguet Corp. chief executive officer Philip Romualdez said, :Today's auspicious milestone is the successful conclusion of navigating a common roadmap towards environmental protection and resource conservation," citing the industry's partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in establishing programs to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change and curb the country's vulnerability to extreme weather conditions.
And as members of the Philippine mining industry, we have been placed in a position where we can help our country - to rehabilitate our national forests and address public health through clean air; to provide communities with a natural protection against climate change; and to leave a place far greener than before we discovered it," Romualdez
said in closing.
