We made a choice to conserve our resources and consciously rethink how we use materials in the way we work. Our goal is to lessen our footprint and make sure that we share the best green practices with all our colleagues.
You are part of the solution!
In many parts of our companies, our colleagues are championing green practices that help protect the environment. If we scale our programs, we can create greater impact and together, as one SM family, we can do our share and fight climate change.
RESPONSIBLE ENERGY USE
Designing buildings with energy-efficient features such as proper insulation, efficient HVAC systems, and energy-efficient lighting greatly helps reduce energy consumption. Installing renewable energy systems such as solar panels also allow buildings to generate their own energy.
Rainwater catchment basins are currently installed in 23 SM malls. They not only help control the flooding in the communities around them, but also create significant water savings through recycling. The collected rainwater is used for greening irrigation, cleaning sidewalks and driveways, and cooling air conditioning systems.
We recognize our duty to responsibly manage our waste and identify programs to reduce plastic waste in landfills. Our malls have become venues for the community to participate in the circular economy via recycling. To date, our program has helped divert almost 20,000kg of post-consumer plastics, equivalent to 32,330kg of carbon dioxide (CO2), from landfills, oceans and rivers.
