The private sector is speeding up the transition to renewable energy.
MANILA, Philippines — SM Supermalls, the country’s largest mall operator, has met its goal of using renewable energy for its electricity demands.
SM Supermalls Corporate Compliance vice president Liza Silerio said the mall chain is currently sourcing 68 percent of its power from renewable energy at the launch of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), Department of Energy (DOE), and SM Supermalls’ energy efficiency and conservation information campaign.
According to Silerio, the company has met or exceeded its goal of using renewable energy by 50% by 2022.
She went on to say that SM is the first mall in the country to install a solar rooftop to meet the mall’s electricity needs.
According to Silerio, solar electricity has been used to power eight SM malls, with another 23 malls set to be powered by solar rooftops in the near future.
“There will be something in the works.” “We still have 50 malls where solar roof decks will be installed,” she said.
According to Silerio, SM’s move to sustainable energy is in line with the government’s goal of reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.
