To officially launch its unified Lifelong Sustainability Strategy, Republic Cement conducted its first ever Lifelong Sustainability Conference last July 4-5 at Marquis Events Place, BC, Taguig. The conference, attended by top-level management, sustainability directors, and key leaders in sustainability-related roles, provided a platform for discussing our best practices, identifying opportunities for improvement in our activities, and establishing a feasible action plan to continue our sustainable development.
“Our commitment to lifelong sustainability is rooted in our care not just for the environment but also for our people,” said CEO Roman Menz. “To respect them is to respect the environment they are in. It’s a cycle—a CIRCLE of transformation for long-term stability that the future generations can experience and enjoy.”
Guest speakers from Sustainable PH, Inc. and Haraya Coaching facilitated workshops and learning sessions during the two-day conference. Attendees took this opportunity to think about their own personal sustainability journeys as well as the role they play in Republic's overall sustainability progress.
