We commit to developing green communities and infrastructure that feature designs that minimize negative impact and enhance positive impact, not only on the physical environment but also on people and communities.
Filinvest City, for instance, is the first CBD in the Philippines to be dual green certified, having received a LEED v4 Gold Certification for Neighborhood Development and a 3-star rating in the pilot version of BERDE Districts from the Philippine Green Building Council.
Filinvest’s various business units have their own efficiency initiatives. For instance, Countrywide Water Services intensified their non-revenue water reduction program in 2022. Filinvest’s hotels also prioritize sustainability, with energy utilization indices ranging from 111 to 328 KWH/m22, which are consistently lower than the mean figures for 3-star to luxury hotels.
Filinvest’s building and township designs prioritize nature and people’s needs for green open spaces and sustainable mobility options. At least 60% of a project footprint is allocated for open spaces, with interconnected green parks and natural waterways incorporated into the design.
