On December 5, 2018, the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) through its representative, Mr. Byron Carbon, received the Plaque of Recognition from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR – NCR Region) and the Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency at the SEAMEO Innotech Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City for the agency’s invaluable support to DENR’s sustainable development program. The award was given to coincide with the National Volunteer Month.
The Annual Million Tree Challenge (AMTC) launched by MWSS together with DENR last year (2017), attracted some agencies up to the present. In its first year, the AMTC exceeded its target of 1 million trees when it hit 1.2 million. MWSS is confident it can exceed its 2017 performance in terms of seedlings planted and nurtured.
MWSS remains steadfast in deepening its commitment to environmental sustainability.
