PPI partner firm recognized anew for its energy efficiency
by Hanna C. Lacsamana

Construction solutions company Holcim Philippines Inc., a partner of the Philippine Press Institute in the conduct of the prestigious Journalism Awards for Sustainable Construction, was again recognized during the 2016 Don Emilio Abello Energy Efficiency Awards by the Department of Energy as among the large industrial firms that efficiently operate its facilities.

The DOE has been conferring the awards for over 30 years to recognize firms that significantly reduce their energy consumption. Participating companies submit consumption reports that are evaluated by energy officials from the public and private sector.

The company’s cement plants in Bacnotan, La Union and Norzagaray, Bulacan won awards of recognition for representing the Philippines in the ASEAN Competition Best Practice for Energy Management in Buildings and Industries.

The La Union plant was cited for its use of alternative fuel and raw materials to reduce its coal consumption, while Bulacan was recognized for its best practices in energy management through process improvements.

In a press statement, Holcim Philippines Chief Operating Officer Sapna Sood thanked the government for the recognition, stressing the company’s continued support for the country’s development in a sustainable manner.

“Our company is committed to further improving its operational efficiency, an integral part of our global advocacy for sustainability that is most relevant to viability of business and industry. This approach allows us to better support the country’s continued development as the government ramps up its infrastructure building,” she said.

Holcim Philippines, through its plants around the country, is a consistent recipient of the energy efficiency award in the past years.

In recent years, Holcim, has been partnering with the PPI for the Journalism Awards for Sustainable Construction, which aims to recognize stories from the print media that help the public better understand, appreciate and support sustainable construction as defined by the Lafarge Holcim Foundation.
