To advance its efforts, it set a target of carbon neutrality throughout its commercial properties by 2022. This will be made possible by a combination of approaches such as the use of natural lighting and air flow, energy conservation, shifts to renewable energy wherever possible, and offsets through forest enhancements across their land banks. It continues to work on targets and metrics in waste and water which it will roll-out in the near future.
Finally, to champion local economic development as a developer of integrated, mixed-use communities, the company’s goal is to build properties that promote enterprise, generate employment, and increase local economic activity, thereby providing opportunities for inclusive growth and diverse social benefits to a large population.
As the company develops different areas, it takes all these aspects into consideration and constantly ensures that it positively impacts, not just its communities, but also the surrounding towns. This is expressed through ‘Alagang Ayala Land,’ the company’s commitment to social development and environmental stewardship, and is reflected in community projects focused on education, skills-training, livelihood, and forest regeneration.
