DOLE to launch "Green Me"

Manila (November 23) - -The National Wages and Productivity Commission (NWPC)is set to launch its green productivity program dubbed “Green ME (Green My Enterprise) on November 23 during the National Productivity Convention, which will be held at Hotel Rembrandt in Quezon City.

“The NWPC, an attached agency of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), has developed a program which will utilize green productivity technologies to achieve higher levels of workers’ productivity and better environmental performance,” said NWPC executive director Ciriaco Lagunzad.

Saying that the NWPC recognizes the role of the workforce in establishing green enterprises, Lagunzad said the Green ME is focused on inculcating these productivity technologies to the workforce in micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

“With Green ME, green productivity starts with the workers themselves. Reducing the adverse effects of climate change should start with the individual, in this case, with the workers,” he said.

Lagunzad also said that the “Green ME” program will be pilot tested in several regions next year. The NWPC, together with the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards (RTWPBs) also plans to coordinate with other government agencies to obtain inputs and expertise on the productivity program.

The Asian Productivity Organization, the leading advocate of productivity in Asia, has defined green productivity as a strategy which combines the appropriate technology , and technologies that reduce the environmental impact of an organization’s activities, products, and services while enhancing profitability and competitive advantage.

Lagunzad explained that the NWPC’s green productivity techniques range from simple housekeeping to designing green products; from process modification to waste management and energy efficiency measures
