AC Energy keen on ditching coal assets before 2030–exec

AC Energy Inc.’s exit from coal could happen ahead of its 2030 target, a company official said.

Government employees in Luzon are now required to work from home after the entire island was placed under “enhanced community quarantine” amid rising cases of novel coronavirus disease 19 (Covid-19).

“Work arrangements of government agencies in Luzon shall be limited to work from home except those agencies required to provide skeletal force under paragraph thereof, as part of the implementation of the strict home quarantine,” Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairman Alicia dela Rosa-Bala said in an announcement.

Bala was referring to the memorandum circular signed by Executive Secretary Salvador C. Medialdea on Monday declaring the enhanced community quarantine over Luzon.

Based on the memorandum circular, work from home arrangement shall be implemented in the Executive branch, except the Philippine National Police (PNP), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), and health and emergency frontline services, border control and other critical services.

Bala noted the work from home arrangement will be in effect from March 17 to April 13 or until the quarantine order has been lifted.

CSC Commissioner Aileen A. Lizada assured that the work arrangement for state workers would basically remain unchanged.

“Their pay will continue since they are still working from home,” Lizada told the BusinessMirror in an SMS.

In the case of CSC, she said, they are still keeping in touch with the public through social media like Facebook or through e-mails and their mobile phones.
