SM CITY SAN JOSE DEL MONTE HOLDS “GREEN RETAIL AGENDA” FOR ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION
On July 27, SM City San Jose Del Monte hosted the Green Retail Agenda of SM Cares and the SM Supermalls Sustainability Department. This program aims to impart to mall tenants SM’s commitment to environment preservation.
This year’s theme, “A Call For Climate Change Action,” was the focus of the three-part program, which tackled environment preservation, climate change and its relationship to sustainable business and development, and disaster risk reduction and preparedness.
The program held at the Cinema 2 of SM City San Jose Del Monte was opened by Mall Manager Arch. Dang Estrella, and followed by a video presentation on global warming and climate change by Ms. Marlyn A. Budac of the Provincial Environment & Natural Resources Office of Bulacan (PENRO). Her colleague, Ms. Virginia S. Cruz also shared the local government’s ongoing environmental conservation efforts that include large scale tree-planting and waterways clean-up.
Ms. Gina Tolentino-Ayson of the City Disaster & Risk Reduction Management Office of San Jose Del Monte (CDRRMO) reminded how lack of concern for the environment could lead to devastating consequences, and that preparedness is key in saving lives in the event of a disaster.
Assistant Mall Manager Arch. Nelson Lopez also shared how SM City San Jose Del Monte is currently adapting various sustainable business practices and renewable energy projects to mitigate climate change. Among these are the Skylight Ceiling and Clerestory that allow natural sunlight to flow inside the mall and the Exterior Insulation and Finishing System (EIFS) found in the mall’s exterior wall panels, which both help in energy conservation.
A No Smoking policy to reduce air pollution and a highly capable Waste Management System that follows the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle campaign of the DENR are also actively being implemented.
SM City San Jose Del Monte is presently working on providing a dedicated parking area for bicycle riders to help reduce carbon footprint. Very soon, an automated Social Weather System and Seismic Vibration Sensors will also be installed in the building to contribute in the community’s disaster resiliency.
Through this Green Retail Agenda, SM City San Jose Del Monte hopes to impart the same desire and commitment for environment preservation to tenants and customers. ///PR SJDMC
