In 2019, national government agencies found unacceptable levels of coliform in the waters of El Nido. Coliform can cause illnesses in humans. This makes the waters of El Nido are safe for swimming and other activities.
In response, the El Nido local government unit (LGU) called on all stakeholders to take action. For its part, the LGU invested in a state-of-the-art sewage and solid waste treatment plant.
The Apartments likewise headed this call. The company committed to work with the El Nido local government to address this issue. This effort bore fruit. In April 2, 2022, The Apartments became one of the top 10 sanitation compliant establishments in El Nido.
The Apartments at El Nido remains a proactive member of the El Nido community. The company also has a no plastic policy to reduce the impact of tourism on the environment. Staff regularly participates in community activities, particularly during relief efforts during disasters. The company also supports the local Coast Guard detachment having donated a speedboat in 2021.
Protecting the environment and caring for the community are simply part of the APT Way.
