The Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission[1] is a state commission in charge of the rehabilitation of the Pasig River. The body was created on January 1999 through Executive Order 54 to strengthen the government's program to rehabilitate the river for transportation, recreation and tourism purposes. Private companies were given a license to coordinate with the commission concerning the rehabilitation program through the amendment of Executive Order 65.

In March 2008, ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources through the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission signed a memorandum of agreement to co-manage the rehabilitation of Pasig River and its tributaries, a vital part of the Metro Manila basin and linked to Laguna Lake and Manila Bay.[2]
