DENR Calabarzon takes another step to go ‘paperless’

         Select 'document trackers' of the DENR Region 4A CALABARZON Regional Office gathered in conference on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, to concretize moves to implement ways to effectively manage and systematically track important documents and using the e-Document Action Tracking System (e-DATS). Dennis Segovia Jr., regional Information Systems Analyst from the Planning and Management division discussed the process and salient points of the System.

         The e-DATS is an initiative of the DENR Central Office to facilitate the monitoring of documents in the whole department, including the regional, provincial and community environment offices.

           Segovia said, "Eventually, all document actions will be done through the e-DATS, achieving the department’s aim to go paperless. The newly-introduced system will also address the problems in document action delays and archiving that has been plaguing the offices for a long time."

            He stressed on the importance of the e-DATS: how to access it, how does one receive and send documents, and how does it make tracking documents more efficient.

            He said that as of now those attending are those in-charge of keeping the documents in their respective divisions and are the ones provided with e-DATS accounts. As part of the DENR's efforts to implement effective document management and in the spirit of transparency in dealing with the public, Segovia concluded, “Soon, all employees will have an e-DATs account, as we (DENR employees) are all action officers.” (With Vera Merano, Administrative Assistant, RPAO)

Full implementation of environmental laws a top priority for Cimatu

         Environment Secretary Roy A. Cimatu on Monday vowed to prioritize environmental protection through full implementation of existing laws on clean air, clean water and solid waste management.

       At his first flag-raising ceremony in the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Cimatu said he would also ensure strict adherence of mining laws by mining contractors and fight illegal logging.

          "But my main effort will be protecting the environment and implementing laws, such as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act," Cimatu told DENR officials and employees, as he unveiled his environmental programs and management priorities as the new head of the agency.

          The former military chief said he would work towards improving air quality in the country, particularly in Metro Manila.

        Under his watch, Cimatu said the DENR will further intensify efforts to rehabilitate the historic Pasig River, an important water body in Metro Manila that connects Laguna Lake to Manila Bay.
