mining is fundamental to our long-term business strategy and anchors on our culture of good
governance,” said Eagle Cement’s COO, Manny C. Teng. “Our approach to responsible mining is our
strong commitment to safeguard our stakeholders and maintain the highest health and safety standards
possible” he added.

The Company not only won the PMIEA award for the ninth year in a row, but also bagged its first Best
Mining Forest Award, landing third-runner up in the Non-Metallic Category. This award demonstrates
its commitment to environmental stewardship and responsible mining beyond compliance.
Eagle Cement highlighted several key achievements of its conservation efforts aligned with the United
Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Mr. Teng noted that these stand proof of Eagle Cement’s
unwavering environmental protection commitment and the dedication of our partners, who work in
tandem to achieve the overall project goals whilst surmounting challenges of the ongoing COVID-19
pandemic.

reforestation program.

drive collective action and identify more opportunities to support biodiversity conservation whenever
possible and will continue to accelerate actions on climate change and restore the natural ecological
balance for the future.
