I am pleased, honored and humbled by the vote of the Commission on Appointments confirming

my nomination. I am excited about this opportunity to continue serving the public as Secretary of

the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The challenge for me now is to prove that President Rodrigo Duterte and the honorable members

of the CA have made the right decision in placing their trust and confidence in my abilities to lead

the DENR towards fulfilling the broad mandate entrusted to it.

The confirmation of my ad interim appointment as DENR Secretary will allow me to continue to

institute reforms, and pursue programs and projects that would truly protect the environment

and improve people's lives. This gives me enough inspiration to carry out the seemingly

gargantuan tasks of protecting the environment and ensuring sustainable use of the

country's rich natural resources in the face of climate change and dwindling natural

wealth of the nation.

 

Rest assured that under my watch, the DENR will push for people-centered agenda

in pursuit of environmental protection and sustainable development. It is high time

that every Filipino, regardless of status in life, should have equal access to the benefits

of clean environment and sustainable natural resources.
