SN Aboitiz Power Magat (SNAP-Magat) was declared the winner in the private organization category at the 23rd National Gawad Kalasag awarding ceremony held on December 11, 2023, at the Manila Hotel. The Gawad Kalasag award is given to local government units, critical institutions, and special organizations for their efforts in disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness,
climate change adaptation, and humanitarian assistance that protect high-risk communities.

The award recognizes the company’s commitment to sustainable operations and safety. “We are committed to safeguarding our employees and host communities, which are an integral part of our
business,” SNAP President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Yu said. Last year, SNAP-Magat
won the national title in the same category, while SNAPBenguet was a runner-up. This year, both companies were champions in their respective regions demonstrating SNAP plants’ consistency and
commitment to safety and excellence in operations.

The Gawad Kalasag, organized by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council
(NDRRMC) and Office of Civil Defense (OCD), is the country’s premier award-giving body which recognizes organizations that have designed and implemented comprehensive Disaster Risk Reduction and Management programs to protect high-risk communities and increase their resilience and capability to respond to and minimize disasters.
