Beyond the EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment): The role of environment in understanding business risks

Undertaking environmental assessments is often seen as a cost of doing business. However, it is in fact the opposite-- while being a cost, a lot of companies nowadays see the benefits and returns of understanding environmental conditions in a financial/transacti onal project. Knowing the environmental risks before financial transactions are finalised is important in understanding material issues that could lead to increased costs, litigation and added responsibility. Every sound businessman will want to know the risks involved, and too often environmental risks are underestimated.

Mr Duckworth and Ms Janice Lao from ERM- Hong Kong will discuss the business drivers on undertaking environmental studies in financial/transacti onal projects (eg Mergers and Acquisitions, Project Finance, Initial Public Offering). They will draw from their experience working in Southeast Asia and China.

Environmental Resources Management (ERM) is an international consulting group of 3,000 environmental, health, safety, social (EHSS) and risk management specialists. As EHSS issues become more important for corporations and governments, ERM is working to balance environmental protection with economic development, improved health and safety and social equity.

AteneoLAC's Ojo de Dios Lantern-Making Competition

In line with the approaching yuletide this year, the Ateneo Lingua Ars Cultura has come up with Pasko sa Ojo de Dios (Christmas in the Eye of God) Lantern Making Competition that will run on the week of December 18, 2006. We gladly invite you to join us in pursuing this project.

Two objectives drive us to accomplish this project:

1. To enrich cultural awareness and appreciate cultural ties in Ateneans through an incorporation of the Filipino tradition of Christmas lanterns and the Mexican craft of Ojo de Dios.
2. To ignite the Christmas Spirit in selected residential institutions by decorating their buildings with our Ojo de Dios Lanterns.

Pasko sa Ojo de Dios will feature a fusion of two colorful traditions namely the Philippine Christmas lantern and the Ojo de Dios craft of Mexico integrated to the Holiday Season. Furthermore, the Philippine Christmas lantern, as we all know, is traditionally made up of star-figured sticks, colored papers and light bulbs. Through this project, we attempt to give a little twist to our Christmas lanterns using the Ojo de Dios craft which traditionally uses a very simplistic set of materials—yarn and sticks. To detail on Ojo de Dios, here is a brief background derived from Marian Harvey’s book, Crafts of Mexico:

The God's Eyes come from the Huichol tribe which lives in the Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico. The God's Eyes are also called by the Spanish term "ojo de dios". The ojo de dios is meant to be a "wand" (the eye) through which the eye of god will see the supplicant (asking for health and long life for children).

Participants in the contest shall be applying the said fusion of traditions. The finished entries after the said competition will be donated to selected residential social institutions currently served by your organization. These will be for decoration purposes.

Mechanics of the contest, a brief orientation, and the distribution of basic materials shall be explained during the first day of the competition week. We encourage you to join as a group. Also, prizes will be given to the team of contestants with the most creative lantern during the culminating event to be held on December 21, 2006.

Please send us your confirmation with regard to the competition on or before December 11, 2006. We are looking forward to your full cooperation in making this project a worthwhile experience.

Thank you,
Michelene A. Venzon, Project Head, 09165615758

Sanggunian Updates

Committee on Student Activities

ASLA and Sanggu Relations

In our efforts to improve the Sanggunian¢s relationship with the Ateneo Student Leaders Assembly, the currently amendments to the resolution are being evaluated. A meeting was convened last November 13, 2006 in the CSPPA office with the ASLA core and the CSA to evaluate the effectivity to of having Sanggu participation in the applicant deliberations, curriculum setting, implementation and evaluation of the program. Although this year was an improvement from how the two parties dealt with each other in the past years, it was seen that ASLA has gained some independence from the Sanggunian. Because of this, both parties agreed that ASLA may function better if they will be no longer be put under the wing of the Sanggunian as this will allow them to broaden the scope of the program. Although there have been no final decisions made yet, the possibility of finding a better set-up is in the works. Another meeting is set on November 16, 2006 to discuss the issue further.


ACP was cancelled this year due to situational constraints (no evaluation and no team for this year). The project was then put under the responsibility of the committee. The committee is still looking for more volunteers to evaluate the project and set up a new team for next year. The committee has already decided not to come up with an alternative project for ACP this year due to time constraints. Documents from the past ACP cannot be found therefore the evaluation process is put on hold. The committee deputy, Uana Arellano, contacted Celine Sugay, the documentations and publications head of last year¢s ACP. Ms. Sugay said that she has the bible and necessary materials for the project to be evaluated. However, two weeks ago, she said that it was not with her. Ms. Arellano also has been trying to set up a meeting with Grip Bueta, head of ACP in the years 2004 and 2005, to help in the evaluation but his schedule does not permit so. The evaluation has to be done as soon as possible so that a new system for ACP may be put on paper and preparations for next year can be started. The committee will be sending out a message through the AOB Bulletin meant for those who were part of past ACPs to assist in the evaluation and provide input on how the system can be improved.

What's new with the Ateneo Online Bulletin (AOB)?

After evaluating the AOB system that has been used for the past semester, here are some changes we are going to implement this time around in order to improve upon it.

1. Some promotions sent by student orgs are sometimes not included in the weekly announcements.
Þ Orgs now send their promotions/announcement to instead of so that their promotions can be easily organized.
Þ Orgs are now sent an email confirming the receipt of their promotions so that they know if their promotions have been successfully received by the AOB Team.

2. Some student orgs do not know how to send promotions through the AOB.
Þ The AOB Team shall provide soft and hard copies of how to send promotions to all student groups.
Þ In case groups still do not use the prescribed format in emailing the AOB, a reply containing how to send promotions shall always be sent in soft copy to the groups.

3. The banner and pictures of AOB do not appear.
Þ The template pictures are currently being updated in order to avoid this forever.

4. Some announcements are often repeated.
Þ From now on, the AOB Team shall not anymore repeat its announcements for consecutive weeks.

5. Batch emergency announcements aren't included on time to help the students in the AOB.
Þ From now on, the different Batch Chairpersons of the Sanggunian can now access the AOB to send emergency announcements that need to be announced before the weekly updates.

6. There are very few important announcements and so many ads.
Þ From now on, the AOB shall be sent to the administrators and faculty of the school so that they can become more aware that they can use it for their administration announcements.
Þ The AOB Team shall now actively seek out important announcements not sent to the Sanggunian so that it can include all announcements – from no class announcements to lab breakage fees collection dates, etc. etc.

To join, form a team composed of three members and log on to www.e-strat. to register and start playing the game. Registration is until 28 November 2006.
L’Oréal e-Strat Challenge is the ultimate business game that provides the participants with the opportunity to be in the virtual driver’s seat of a leading global cosmetics company, and to make strategic decisions based on realistic marketing situations.

But in a broader sense, the L’oréal e-Strat Challenge allows you to compete with the best minds around the world. Last year, 40,000 students from 2,000 universities in 125 countries registered for the challenge. 5,000 students (1,500 teams) qualified for the competition proper, 300 teams were selected to the semifinals, and 16 teams made it to the international finals held in Paris, France where the participants presented their business plans before L’Oréal senior executives.
If your team makes it to the international finals, you and your partner professor will be sent to Paris, France courtesy of L’Oréal Philippines.
And if you win the finals, you and your partner professor will get the chance to go to any country of your choice… for free!
In the national competition, the top three teams from the Philippines and their partner professors will receive the following prizes:
1st Place: 3 Days and 2 Nights Trip to Boracay
2nd Place: Overnight Accommodation in a 5-Star Hotel

Report on Guimaras Assistance

Dear Friends and Supporters of Task Force Noah and the Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan,

I am happy to report that through the funds collected by the Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan and Ateneo de Manila University's Task Force Noah, the following forms of assistance have been provided to the communities in Guimaras that were most badly affected by the recent oil-spill.
· Relief Goods for 500 fisher-families (of Salvacion and Laniput Towns);
· Milk Supplement for 230 children (of various towns of Nueva Valencia);
· Seeds for Backyard Vegetable farming for 250 families (of Lucmayan Town);
· Start-up capital for a small-scale alternative livelihood/crafts-making project in Sitio Dungcaan, Lucmayan;
· Free Medical consultations for the members of communities in Dungcaan and Talabahan;
I, along with Dr. Atoy Salazar, S.J., M.D. and Dr. RV Guevara, M.D., comprised the SLB-team that facilitated the above last October 24-29, 2006. All our efforts were in cooperation with Mrs. Beth Jarantilla (Iloilo based SLB volunteer), Fr. Bong Gotera (Parish Priest of Nueva Valencia) and Sr.Louise Banares of the Dominican Sisters based in Guimaras.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL WHO GAVE GENEROUSLY to make these forms of assistance possible. A detailed accounting of the said funds and expenses will be sent to all donors shortly. This will also be posted in our website,, along with photos taken in the spill-site and a more detailed report on the conditions found there.

May the Spirit of concern and generosity, and a deepening sense of stewardship for all creation, continue to lead us closer to our God who is with us in our work for those in great need.

In Christ Our Lord,

Mark Lopez, S.J
