The Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) recently signed a memorandum of agreement with the Society of Philippine Motoring Journalists (SPMJ) to support the latter’s Driven To Serve CSR Awards as a cooperating sponsor.
The Driven To Serve CSR Awards was conceived to recognize the most outstanding CSR projects undertaken by automotive manufacturers and distributors in the Philippines.
The awards hope to cast light on the heartwarming efforts that automotive industry players have put into community development, protection of the environment, education, and road safety. The SPMJ has adopted this new advocacy in order to spur more corporate entities to follow in their footsteps as well as encourage those already engaged in such projects to soldier on.
Applicable entries for the event have already been fielded and have recently undergone judging by some of the luminaries in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility. The most outstanding projects will be announced during the awards ceremony to be held in February 2017.
The SPMJ is a non-profit organization composed of broadcasters, editors, and writers covering the automotive beat. The MNTC is the developer and operator of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX).
