MAKATI City (Metro Manila), together with the cities of London, Boston, Toronto, Dubai and Rotterdam, has obtained the highest level of certification under the first-ever set of ISO standards for world cities, ISO 37120. It made the Philippines’ financial center among the first 20 cities in the world to earn such certification. ISO 37120 was developed using the Global City Indicators Facility (GCIF) framework with its network of over 255 cities globally and input from leading industry experts within the ISO Technical Committee on Sustainable Development of Communities (ISO/TC 268). The World Council on City Data (WCCD) has successfully piloted ISO 37120 with 20 Foundation Cities: Amman, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bogotá, Boston, Buenos Aires, Dubai, Guadalajara, Haiphong, Helsinki, Johannesburg, London, Makkah, Melbourne, Minna, Rotterdam, São Paulo, Shanghai, Toronto and Makati. Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay welcomed the recognition, which “strengthens our resolve to continue improving our services to the people of Makati so that they would experience quality living commensurate with the amenities of a highly urbanized city.”
