MANILA, Philippines — Manila Water, a leading player in the water industry, has reached a significant milestone by earning its very first “A-” score in water security from CDP, a non-profit environmental organization.

This achievement reflects the company’s unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship and its dedication to ensuring water security for the communities it serves.
