“PrimeWater understands that commitment to sustainability is the future. This partnership reinforces this commitment as it will strengthen our company's projects and initiatives,” said Cynthia Javarez, chairman of Prime Asset Ventures, Inc (PAVI) in a statement.
PrimeWater committed to help protect the environment by conducting watershed protection and adoption, cleanup drives and mangrove-tree planting.
Meanwhile, the company supports its communities through other corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs such as setting up hygiene and sanitation stations and livelihood programs for micro-entrepreneurs.
Cathay United Bank's Senior Vice President and General Manager for Manila Joseph Chen expressed optimism that the bank will be a part of PrimeWater's initiatives.
“We are even more driven to strengthen our sustainable financing with PrimeWater as we recognize our common goals and mission,” Chen said.
