MYSHELTER FOUNDATION RECOGNIZED AS TOP LEADER IN GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY
MyShelter Foundation's Liter of Light from the Philippines has been recognized as one of the Top 10 finalists competing for the international green accolade, Sustainia Award, headed by Arnold Schwarzenegger and chair of UN’s panel on climate change (IPCC), Dr. Rajendra Pachauri. Out of 1200 entries, and a narrowed field of 500 from around the world, only 10 projects remain, including Liter of Light, the only finalist representing the Philippines and Asia.
For the People's Choice Award, determined by online voting, the Liter of Light is currently in first place.
“The Top-10 Sustainia projects reflect innovative approaches that can lead to more sustainable industries. Hopefully, they will inspire more businesses to take green practicing to heart. It is not an easy choice to select one, but I’m looking forward to presenting the Sustainia Award winner in Copenhagen,” says Dr. Rajendra Pachauri.
