환경보호와 프로그램 활성화
Lugait 지대에서 나비정원을 보고 놀랄 것이다. 나비는 생물 종다양성을 강화시키는데 도움을 줄 뿐만 아니라 환경보건 척도로 여겨진다.
오늘날 Lugait 지대는 산업의 환경친화적 관광센터로 여겨지고 있다. 학생과 관광객이 허브정원과 난 단지, 그리고 나비 때문에 이 지대를 방문하고 있다.
우리의 육성작업 나무심기 프로그램을 통해, 고유종을 번식시켜 왔다.
나무심기 프로그램은 61.64헥타르 시행되어 왔고, 89.6%의 생존율을 보였다.

개혁적인 광산 복원
개혁적 복원 노력은 활발하게 채굴되고 있는 곳뿐만 아니라 MPSA(대량생산면허) 내의 지역까지 포함하여 이루어지고 있다.
Lugait의 경우, 활발하게 채굴된 63헥타르 이외에, 12헥타르가 개혁적으로 복원되어 왔고, 92.8헥타르의 휴면 지역이 추가복원될 것이다.

최종 광산복원과 해체계획
Holcim Philippines는 필리핀 환경부의 승인을 받은 최종복원안을 제출한 첫 번째 회사이다.
4개의 지대의 총복원비용은 필리핀화 72.14페소로 산정되었고 이는 12년동안 투입될 것이다.

청정대기 유지: 배출감소 측정법
우리 회사는 Holcim Group 필수요구사항의 한 부분으로서 지속적 배출감시시스템에 투자하였다.
CEMS는 실시간으로 가스, 먼지 배출 감시를 가능하게 한다.
Holcim은 세계지속가능한발전위원회의 창립 구성원으로서 2010년 20%까지 배출을 줄이는데 기여하고 있다.

연료대체, 에너지 효율성, 광물자원사용효율로 CO2줄이기
대체연료와 원자재프로그램을 통해 우리는 농업, 생활폐기물을 열에너지로 전환하여 화석연료 사용을 줄일 수 있다.

Environmental Protection and Enhancement Program

Site beautification and biodiversity enhancement

In our Lugait plant, you will be surprised to see a butterfly garden. It is said that butterflies not only help enhance biodiversity, but they are also a barometer of a healthy environment.
Today, our Lugait plant is considered an industrial ecotourism center. Students, and even tourists visit our plant because of this, and our herbal garden and orchidarium.

Through our nursery operations, we have been able to propagate endemic species for our reforestation program.

Reforestation has been implemented in 61.64 hectares, with an 89.60% survival rate of trees planted.

Progressive quarry rehabilitation

Our progressive rehabilitation efforts are not just limited to areas that are actively being quarried, but including degraded areas within our MPSAs.
In the case of Lugait, out of 63 hectares actively quarried, 12 hectares have been progressively rehabilitated and an additional 92.8 hectares of idle lots, despite non-utilization.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Final mining rehabilitation and decommissioning plan
Holcim Philippines was the first Philippine company to submit a final rehabilitation plan and have it approved by the DENR.
The total combined rehabilitation cost for the four plants is estimated at PhP72.14 million which is to be funded within a period of 12 years.

Keeping the air clean: Measures to reduce emissions

Our company invested on a complete set of Continuous Emissions Monitoring System as part of its compliance to the Holcim Group requirement. This goes beyond the Philippine Clean Air Act requirement for a cement plant.
The CEMS enables us to monitor gaseous and dust emissions in real time.

To minimize fugitive dust, we maintain bag house filters and electrostatic precipitators in all our plants.

Holcim, as a founding member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development has committed to reduce emissions by 20% in the year 2010.

CO2 reduction through fuel substitution, energy efficiency and mineral components utilization

Through our alternative fuel and raw materials program, we are able to reduce our use of fossil fuel as we co-process agricultural and residual waste to derive thermal energy.
Because we respect the hierarchy of waste, our co-processing program does not hamper waste reduction efforts. We do not co-process waste if ecologically and economically better ways of recovery are available.

Our AFR program is guided by strict qualification criteria and lab testing procedure prior to co-processing and is monitored by regulators.

The impact to emissions is also carefully monitored.

Alternative raw materials include industrial waste, used tires, agricultural waste and residual waste like plastics.

Our AFR program provides a sustainable solution to waste management and helps minimize the country’s carbon footprint. Waste such as rice hull which would normally be burned in the open thus producing CO2, is collected by Holcim and used as alternative fuel, thereby reducing CO2 emissions.

Currently, Holcim has tied up with city government of Makati, Marikina and Quezon City in collecting used car tires and other rubber waste for co-processing.
