LANDBANK recently received two “Kampeon ng Katubigan” awards for championing programs for water access and environmental sustainability. Maynilad Water Services (Maynilad) and National Water Resources Board (NWRB) conferred the awards for LANDBANK’s environmental programs – Manila Bay SUNSET Program Partnership and Adopt-A-Watershed Phase II – at the second World Water Day Awards.
Manila Bay SUNSET Program Partnership is LANDBANK’s flagship environmental program, created to implement a sustainable approach to protect and conserve the Manila Bay – considered one of the best natural harbors in Southeast Asia.
Meanwhile, Adopt-A-Watershed is LANDBANK’s program, in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), for the rehabilitation of denuded watersheds in different areas nationwide to contribute to the government’s National Greening Program.
Now on its second year, World Water Day Awards recognizes individuals and institutions from the academe, government and non-government agencies, and the private sector that made “a difference in the area of water access and environmental sustainability.”
The annual award-giving event served as the culminating activity of the World Water Day celebration in March.
“People who work in water-related sectors are often not recognized for their efforts, and it is our intent to change that through the World Water Day Awards. Though only on its second year, the mission of this awards program is to give recognition to remarkable water professionals, whose work has created quite an impact not only in the industry, but also in our society,” Maynilad President and CEO Ramoncito S. Fernandez said.
LANDBANK was nominated by DENR for the awards for the Bank’s CSR environmental efforts.
