Ayala Land Cited for Building Sustainable Communities

July 16, 2015 – Ayala Land, Inc.’s (ALI) commitment to building sustainable communities has earned for it a special recognition for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at the recently held Philippines Property Awards, a part of the Asia Property Awards, which for 10 years now, recognizes leading companies and professionals in the real estate industry across the region.

“We thank the organizers and judges for recognizing our deepening commitment to sustainability, with its principles integrated in the way we operate the business and demonstrated in every project that we do,” said Jaime E. Ysmael, ALI Chief Finance Officer. “We consider this our ‘CSR’ and our way of contributing significantly and positively to society.”

Known for its masterplanned communities spanning 45 growth centers across the country, Ayala Land’s efforts in sustainability and corporate governance is made visible in the design of its large-scale integrated mixed-use developments.

“We recognize the importance of building with minimum impact to the environment and maximum benefit to people. This is why all the property components in our integrated developments are designed to promote interaction and increase economic opportunities,” Ysmael added.

Ayala Land’s sustainability focus has become the blueprint of every Ayala Land development and the company’s motivation in fulfilling its vision of continuously enhancing land and enriching lives for more people.

According to Anna Maria M. Gonzales, ALI Sustainability Manager, Ayala Land makes sure that it chooses the proper locations and carefully studies the condition of the land prior to developing a project. “We recognize that respecting the natural terrain and native vegetation increases site resilience. We make sure our developments are connected to public transport and encourage walking. Lastly, the business districts we are known for become platforms for local economies to grow and flourish. For us, these elements result in sustainable communities,” explained Gonzales.

In addition to this major award for CSR, ALI’s residential brands also garnered multiple awards and commendations. Among these are Ayala Land Premier’s Park Terraces in Makati for Best Residential Architectural Design; Alveo’s Abreeza Residences and Solinea for Best Residential Development in Davao and Best Condo Development in Cebu, respectively.
