(08 December 2017, Pasay City, Philippines) SM Prime Holdings, Inc. (SM Prime), one of the leading integrated property developers in Southeast Asia, received numerous awards from the 2017 Don Emilio Abello Energy Efficiency Awards, spearheaded by the Department of Energy (DOE), bringing the total number to over 200 since it joined in 2007.
This year, a total of 18 awards, consisting of eight citations, six special awards, and four ASEAN Energy Award of recognition were received by SM Prime in the awarding ceremonies held at the Maxims Hotel in Resorts World Manila, Pasay on December 7, 2017.
SM City Manila, SM Mall of Asia, SM City Fairview, SM City Clark, SM Southmall, SM Delgado, SM Harrison, and OneE-Com were given Citation Awards. Special Awards were given to SM Center Pasig, SM City Bacoor, SM City Marikina, SM City Cebu, SM City Masinag, and TwoE-com; ASEAN Energy Award of recognition, on the other hand, was given to SM Jazz Mall, SM Seaside City-Cebu, OneE-Com, and FiveE-Com.
The combined energy saved by the recognized properties is equivalent to powering-up 2.6 million mobile phones, or 62,000 LED street lamps in one year. All in all, the energy savings measured is 9,571,199 kWh.
The Don Emilio Abello Energy Efficiency Awards recognizes outstanding companies and energy managers who have achieved substantial savings in their energy consumption.
Prior to joining the Don Emilio Abello Energy Efficiency Awards in 2007, SM Prime Chairman of the Executive Committee, Mr. Hans Sy, advocated the company’s energy management initiatives as early as 1999. This was the time when the effects of climate change, carbon emissions, greenhouse, and global warming has not been fully grasped by the world.
Energy management programs are incorporated as early as the design stage of SM buildings, so that at the first day of commercial operations, the structures are already running optimally.
SM Prime recognizes its impact on the environment and thus continues to make energy efficiency and conservation one of its top priorities. Alongside the company’s growth and success, the addition of the recent awards serves as a challenge that inspires the company to do even better in becoming a leader in environmental sustainability.
