Green Designs for Sustainable Communities

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.

Green Designs, Green Technologies for Efficiency

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.

Nature-Inspired,Centered on People

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.

Nurturing Talent: Equal Opportunities for Jobs, Development and Growth

Filinvest has been known for many years as an organization that has empowered women.  The current CEO and President of FDC herself, along with her mother who co-founded Filinvest, had received numerous awards for nurturing an organization that celebrates the abilities of women in the world of business.

Across the Filinvest Group:

  • 55% of all employees are women
  • 49% at the executive level are women
  • 51.5% at the executive, manager and supervisor level are women
  • 3 of the 7-member Board of Directors of FDC are women
At Filinvest, we have many women presidents, but we are definitely not biased against men either. We are a gender-blind organization.
