ALI taps CCI for Carbon Reduction Initiatives
Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) has commissioned the Center for Conservation Innovations Inc. to provide technical services in support of ALI’s drive towards carbon neutrality by 2022.

CCI is a non-governmental organization that provides technical support and organizational capacity development for various aspects of biodiversity conservation. As part of its sustainability initiatives, ALI recently announced that it is embarking on an aggressive plan to reduce GHG emissions in its commercial properties through a combination of programs which include passive cooling design, energy efficiency, renewable energy sourcing, and carbon offset mechanisms such as forest regeneration and protection.
Present during the contract signing on March 14 were: (l-r) Gilbert Berba, ALI Head of Urban Planning; Anna Ma. Margarita Dy, ALI Senior Vice President, Group Head of Strategic Land Bank Management and Program Lead of the ALI carbon neutrality project; Dr. Neil Aldrin Mallari, CCI President; and Edmund Leo Rico, CCI Executive Director.
