In 2006, 马尼拉水 with the assistance of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) a 可持续发展政策 was developed to guide the company’s 可持续性 track. 多年来, several changes in the organization and business environment prompted the company to revisit the policy and identify the gaps that need to be addressed.
In 2007, 马尼拉水 became the first company in the Philippines to have a formal, Board-ratified 气候变化政策. The company’s 气候变化政策 predates the national climate change policy, including the Philippine Climate Change Act, the National Framework Strategy on Climate Change and the National Climate Change Action Plan, which were approved in July 2009, 2010年4月和2011年8月, 分别.
To better align the company’s 气候变化政策 with the Philippine government's anchor strategy of adaptation as a key response to climate change, 马尼拉水 revised the policy in 2013 to prioritize initiatives on enhancing the climate resilience of assets and operations while continuing its greenhouse gas emissions reduction initiatives. Revisions were also made to highlight emerging 操作 risks to the company.
The Policy was further revised in 2019 to reflect commitments on proactive water source development and expand climate change mitigation programs to include initiatives other than energy efficiency and renewable energy.
