MANILA, Philippines – The Cravings Group (TCG) has once again been recognized by the international community as it was recently awarded with the “Best Practice in Leadership for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the Community” by the Sustainable Business Awards (SBA). The awards aim to increase awareness on sustainable business best practices and demonstrate how sustainable business benefits companies, the environment and all stakeholders, today and the future.

“We are very honored with this citation as we are the only candidate from the hotel and restaurant industry among top companies and businesses in the Philippines,”said Susana P. Guerrero, president and founder of The Cravings Group.  “TCG’s many initiatives in sustainability earned us this global SBA in CSR.  The goal of sustainability is simply maximizing and properly using, and maintaining life’s resources to remain viable for future generations. It is simple enough to understand that if one puts back what he takes from the environment, then it is replenished and is again available for use. Sustainability is more than just being green or eco-friendly. It is about ethical treatment of people and respect for God-given life resources.”

TCG is the only restaurant /culinary school/ hotel to have been certified under the ISO14001:2004 standard in the Philippines. Its Environmental Management Systems (EMS) has recently passed a Surveillance Audit last July 25, 2014. 

“Proud as we with the citation, it is a call for all of us to take up the challenge of raising the level of standards in attaining sustainability. Information dissemination and education for all is the key towards our goal beyond ISO 14001. We have to fill the Earth with love so that it will be renewed and restored. In turn, it will nurture us and revitalize future generations of humanity,” said Guerrero.
