Philippine companies fined for pollution

Okay, this bit of news is late by a whole month, but it’s still pretty intriguing. Last month, the Philippines’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources fined six companies for breaking the anti-pollution law. Some of the companies are questioning the penalty. Others, like SM Megamall, chose to comply; for SM Megamall’s part, they say that they’re paying the fine to show their commitment to environment and social responsibility. Seems to us like it’ll be more responsible of them if they didn’t pollute at all.
