(MANILA, Philippines) – Corporate office employees of Philex Mining Corporation, and subsidiary Silangan Mindanao Mining Co. Inc. (SMMCI), recently joined Maynilad Water Services Inc. and other MVP Group companies at the La Mesa Eco-Park for this year’s launch of the public water utility’s annual “Plant For Life” program. The kick-off activity coincided with Maynilad’s 15th anniversary and chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan’s birthday. “Plant for Life” is the flagship environmental conservation program of Maynilad, which aims to recover denuded watersheds and thus protect the water supply of millions of consumers. PMC and SMMCI continue to enhance their ESG and sustainability approaches and practices as part of their commitment to the highest principles of transparency and accountability. Both recognize their corresponding responsibility to preserve, conserve, and rehabilitate the environment where they operate. 30 (Photo: Philex PRAD)
