DPWH–CAR is one of most eco–friendly regional offices in RP
by Mary Jennifer G. Juezan

The Department of Public Works and Highways-Cordillera was awarded as one of the three most compliant regional offices nationwide to environment programs/policies and efforts on environmental protection and conservation.

The regional office received the award during the “2017 Recognition Awards for DPWH Eco-Friendly Regional Offices” on Dec. 21, at the DPWH central office.

Out of the 16 regions, DPWH-CAR was rated second to Region I, which received the Environmental Excellence Award for 2017. The third citation was earned by Region X.

Two Cordillera officials were also given important distinctions, namely Vilma F. Talamayan for Outstanding Environmental Management Specialist and Juliet B. Aban, information officer II, for Huwarang Earth Steward.

Talamayan is the Environmental Management Specialist of DPWH, who handles all the environmental concerns of the region and spearheads the implementation of the eco-friendly program.

Aban has been cited for her initiatives and advocacy in recycling of waste materials particularly the recovery of used staple wires and converting these into cash.

Regional Director Nerie D. Bueno, who received the awards for DPWH-CAR from Sec. Mark A. Villar, expressed her gratitude for the improvement of DPWH in terms of environmental compliance and physical and financial accomplishments.

She added that while the regional and district engineering offices are committed to provide the public quality, safe, and environment-friendly public infrastructure facilities, the office is mandated, as well, to integrate sustainable practices in the workplace.

The eco-friendly regional offices were assessed to their compliance and innovation to conserve water and energy; air pollution prevention; greeting programs; order and cleanliness, green procurement; emergency preparedness and waste management. These initiatives were systematically documented and reported to the central office.
