Environmental Policy

Our Environment Management System is founded on the principles of strict compliance, shared responsibility, and continuous improvement.


Since then, our coal mining operation and support activities have been certified as compliant to the International Organization for Standardization on Environmental Management System (ISO 14001).


In 2017, following our successful transition in our coal mining operations, SMPC passed conformance and was recommended for certification to the 2015 version of ISO 14001 by the external conformity assessment body, Governing Board of Certification International Philippines, Inc.


On a quarterly basis, a Multi-Partite Monitoring Team (MMT) composed of representatives from the Philippine government and various stakeholder groups oversees and evaluates our adherence to the Environmental Compliance Certificate conditions of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, including other applicable laws, rules, and regulations.


Our Environmental Unit (EU), together with concerned groups, regularly assesses our environmental programs for effectiveness and improvement. Air and water quality, noise level and hazardous-regulated materials are also monitored and regularly tested against standards and baseline data.
