CLARK FREEPORT -- Clark Development Corporation (CDC) recently received recognition from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) for its support to various environmental programs in Central Luzon.
The DENR-Environmental Management Bureau awarded CDC, along with some of its locators, during the Environmental Partnership Awards at the Savannah Hotel in Angeles City.
CDC Environmental Permits Division (EPD) head engineer Rogelio Magat and CDC-EPD assistant manager Mayflor Candelaria received the award that cites the long-term partnership of CDC and DENR in Central Luzon for numerous environment undertakings.
The award also acknowledges the contribution of the state-owned firm to the advocacies of DENR-EMB.
“It is this enduring partnership that inspired some locators to go beyond compliance and become environmental advocates for sustainable economic development,” Candelaria said after receiving the award.
DENR-Central Luzon also conferred awards to some locator companies in this freeport, including Donggwang Clark Corporation, Fontana Development Corporation, Filinvest Mimosa Inc., and CRL Environmental Corporation while acknowledging their commitment to the environment.
Some of the notable eco-friendly programs of CDC which are also participated in by its locators include the annual Recyclables Collection Event and Adapt-an-Estero Project, which aims to clean up the river systems within the Metro Clark area.
The Environmental Practitioners Association (EPA), which is headed by CDC-EPD manager Rogelio Magat, was also recognized for being the longtime partner of the EMB in Central Luzon in the conduct of training for pollution control officers (PCO) and managing heads to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills needed for environmental stewardship.
Outgoing DENR-EMB Central Luzon chief Lormelyn Claudio welcomed the incoming regional chief Wilson Trajeco in a turnover ceremony.
