Leading real estate developer Megaworld Corp. is going green in its township projects in Metro Manila.
Jericho Go, Megaworld vice president, said going “green” is not just a trend, but it is a must for developers nowadays.
“If you are not green, you are not considered in and we started that in Megaworld,” Go said, adding that going green in the development of its township projects has become the firm’s advocacy.
Megaworld pioneered the live-work-play-learn township concept in the country where the development features green buildings designed to efficiently use energy.
Go said there should be an active participation by the private sector in a collective effort to
reduce pollution in the country.
“One way of doing that is by using less energy,” he said.
Efficient energy use is the underlying guideline that the company follows in its large-scale, master-planned mixed-use developments such as Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City; Newport City in Pasay; McKinley Hill, Forbes Town Center, McKinley West, and Uptown Bonifacio, all in Fort Bonifacio; and Woodside City in Pasig.
