Ex-DENR Chief Gina Lopez passes away

Former environment and natural resources secretary Gina Lopez on Monday passed away at age of 65, the ABS-CBN Corp. announced.
“Gina was the pillar of strength that pushed ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. (AFI) to achieve what seemed to be impossible. Her caring heart and selfless kind of love inspired people within and beyond the organization to help and serve others,” ABS-CBN said in a statement posted on its news website.

According to the announcement, Lopez succumbed to brain cancer.

“While we mourn with Gina’s family and loved ones, we also pray that her legacy continues to live on in the heart of every Kapamilya she had touched in her lifetime,” the ABS-CBN statement said.

“We will never forget her and will continue to honor her remarkable contributions not only to ABS-CBN, but the entire nation.”

“Thank you Gina, for showing us how it is to live in the service of the Filipino. When she was the secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Lopez introduced reforms in the agency and made some contentious decisions,” it added.

In February 2017, Lopez ordered 23 mines shut and five others suspended. She also canceled 75 contracts for mining projects located in watersheds.
