As climate change and global warming is no longer just an awareness campaign; sustainable, long-term and viable solutions are now a necessity for each city, business, and family.
“Positioned towards achieving inclusive growth, we’re very happy that Green Philippines 2015 once again paved the way for new partnerships between local and international businessmen, entrepreneurs, and sectors of the government from the renewable energy; construction; manufacturing and technology; and, lifestyle industries,” remarked Patrick Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link MP Events International Inc., organizer of the show.
