Dear Sir/Madam:

Warm Greetings from PCAPI Region IV-A Chapter!

The Pollution Control Association of the Philippines (PCAPI) Region IV-A Chapter in coordination with the DENR – Environmental Management Bureau Region IV-A will hold its 11th Biennial PCO General Assembly on 17-19 October 2018 at The Grand Ballroom of the Bellevue Hotel Manila, North Bridgeway, Filinvest Corporate City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
11th Biennial PCO General Assembly
on October 17-19, 2018
at The Grand Ballroom, Bellevue Manila
This year, our GA will revolve around the theme, “GREEN TO GOLD: PCOs as Sustainability Professionals” – which aims to discuss present and emerging agenda, commitment and challenges in achieving sustainability and showcase environmental commitments as they are translated to initiatives that deliver “green to gold” results. We have prepared an indicative program that we hope will cover more knowledge and insights in improving environmental results and enhancing efficiency, and a large exhibition to help us keep up with the trends in our PCO practices and technologies.
This three-day event promises to bring together exemplary speakers and partners to cover:

  • Updates on Environmental Policies;
  • Sustainability policies in the international arena and as applied in the Philippines;
  • Sustainability initiatives in the Philippines for Bottom-line results that can be adapted by the PCOs for sustainable products and services;
  • Exhibit on pollution control products, equipment, technologies and services;
  • The search for 2018 Outstanding PCO, Success Story Award, and Mother Nature Award;
  • Fellowship and networking with fellow PCOs and environmental practitioners;
  • PCAPI R4A General Membership Meeting and Elections
In this regard, we would like to invite you and your Pollution Control Officer/s and/or your Managing Head to join in this biggest gathering of PCOs and environmental practitioners, as the country’s most outstanding association of PCOs holds its 11th Biennial General Assembly.

About the Theme
Many business leaders have come to recognize the importance of water and air pollution, waste management, land use, chemical exposures, food safety, climate change, and other environmental issues to marketplace success. Industries face constantly evolving regulatory requirements, natural resources scarcities, shifting consumer expectations, rising demands from clients who are “greening” their supply chains, and other sustainability pressures that shape the nature of how industries operate today. With this dynamic arena, PCOs are at the forefront of implementing environment and sustainability initiatives as part of one’s business strategies. As Pollution Control Officers, we stand to ensure corporate green initiatives deliver gold results.
