At the launch of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Mines and Geosciences Bureau’s (MGB) #MineResponsibility information and education campaign on November 8, DENR Undersecretary for Mining and Climate Change Concerns Atty. Analiza Rebuelta-Teh reaffirmed the government’s commitment to social and environmental protection when it comes to mining. In her keynote speech during the launch, Teh acknowledged the various concerns on mining the public has had over the years — environmental damage sustained from mining operations that did not yet fall under the Mining Act of 1995, notions that disasters are worsened by mining and quarrying, government corruption, human rights violations, and displacement of indigenous peoples.
