Eagle Cement Corp. bagged its seventh consecutive win from the Presidential Mineral Industry and Environmental Awards (PMIEA) in recognition of its initiatives to enforce sustainable development practices in its mining operations amid the new normal.
Last March 18, Eagle Cement received another Platinum Achievement Award under the Quarry Operations Category from PMIEA for its sustainability performance in 2020, marking the company’s seventh consecutive year of being recognized by the PMIEA Selection Committee. Eagle Cement has been assessed in the following criteria: environmental management and protection, rehabilitation/ mining forest program, safety and health and social and community development, among others.
Prior to this, Eagle Cement has been a Titanium Achievement Awardee for four successive years since 2014 and a Platinum Achievement Awardee from 2018.
The PMIEA recognizes the commitment and outstanding efforts of companies and organizations in mining and quarry operations and mineral exploration. The award honored Eagle Cement’s best practices in the past year for responsible management of the environment and natural resources, improvement of land use, development of its host and neighboring communities, and site rehabilitation among others.
Eagle Cement is optimistic about its growth as the company is scheduled to complete by the first half of 2021 a new mill in Bulacan, which will increase its operations capacity and support Eagle Cement’s upcoming projects as most construction operations resume.
