SM Prime Holdings, Inc., one of the leading and integrated property developers in Southeast Asia, recently joined forces with the Department of Energy, Presidential Communications Office, and USAID for the “You Have the Power” campaign.
Supported by SM Supermalls and its corporate social responsibility arm, SM Cares, the initiative aims to encourage the public to adopt an energy-efficient lifestyle and instill a sense of shared responsibility for the environment.
The roadshow kicked off at SM City Baguio on June 23 and engaged with the youth by featuring winning artworks from the DOE’s digital poster making contest created by students from various schools in the country.
Senior high school students from the University of the Cordilleras joined the program, participating in a learning session on energy efficiency and conservation 101 with a gamified experience of the exhibit booths.
With sustainability and disaster resilience at the core of SM Prime’s business, the company continuously allocates 10 percent of its capital expenses in features in its properties supporting these two advocacies, from rain catchment facilities to renewable energy sources and everything in between.
The roadshow showcased SM Prime’s innovative green building design across SM Supermalls, which incorporates renewable energy, energy-efficient building management systems, and electric vehicle charging stations.
The DOE promoted renewable energy and sustainable transport by featuring solar panels and an electric vehicle display with USAID complementing the campaign with its City of Energia app, which provides information on energy efficiency and conservation to the public.
