SM City BF has been built to be environmentally friendly, sustainable and disaster resilient.

Over the years, SM Prime has taken the lead in making its malls both green certified and disaster resilient which, apart from protecting and conserving the environment, reduces risks for SM and its tenants from the potential effects of the intensifying weather patterns.
