Pursuit for Sustainability:
Social, Environmental and Economic Development for Upland Communities; and the Case for Plantation Forests

9:30 to 11:30 AM | Thursday 27 July 2017 | ECCP Conference Room, Makati
FREE for Members | Php 800 for Non-members

Following our discussions on the environment sector with DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu during the Joint Membership Luncheon last June, we continue to advocate for environmental sustainability in this month's Coffee Mornings session. The massive degradation of the country's natural forest cover has resulted in extensive soil erosion and floods. For decades now, at least 20%of the country's land resources are in low productive condition, denuded, and degraded. The country, for the last 20 years, has to depend heavily on timber imports to run its wood processing industries. Join ECCP in taking the lead in a growing environmentally conscious business community.

Session Objectives:
  • To establish a beneficial relationship between landowners and investors through promoting feasible and sustainable forest plantation ventures
  • To show that, with the right approaches, it is possible to recover our lost timber and forest resources, reduce massive soil erosion,and minimize destructive floodwaters, and hence improve the natural environment

Who Should Attend:
  • Investors, and development workers, and companies interested in learning how the country's timber and forest resources may be recovered.
* Maximum of 25 slots on a first come first served basis. Snacks will be served.
Registration closes on Tuesday 25 July 2017, or as soon as slots are filled
