"Klima ng Pagbabago sa Nagbabagong Klima"

The Environment Committee special event at the 2014 LCF CSR Expo, held July 22, 8:00am - 5:00pm, at the Cleanergy Science Center and Museum, Laguna.

The effects of a changing climate are already upon us, and this cannot be anymore denied or ignored. The Philippines is among the most vulnerable countries in the world to weather-related extreme events, earthquakes and sea level rise, and is already feeling the consequences of climate change.

The unprecedented natural disturbances of the last five years - Ondoy, Pepeng, Sendong, Pablo, and Yolanda - already give us fair warning of how our environment is sadly and tragically reflecting our actions: strong typhoons occurring in areas which historically have not experienced severe weather, some 10,000 lives lost, economic damages and loses amounting to nearly $19 billion.*

As we renew our efforts to undertake strategic and sustainable CSR as a vehicle for nation building, it will serve as well to embrace the realities of a rapidly changing climate to promote a climate of change in all of us: a change in our ways, in our thinking, in our plans.

It begins with us. It begins with small steps and simple acts. And it begins now.
