Our commitment to minimize our carbon footprint in the day-to-day operations of our ecozone parks has earned us numerous recognitions over the years.

Awards received include PEZA Hall of Fame for pioneering environmental practices, 2020 PEZA Excellence Award for Green, Healthy, Smart and Sustainable Ecozone, 2021 DENR Best Environmental Practices of Private Sectors and the prestigious LEED Gold certification for our LISP IV Administration Building.

Notable undertakings of SPPI include masterplan designs considering the impact of climate change; generous and green open spaces; efficient operations towards resource conservation, pollution prevention, and waste minimization; use of renewable energy; adaption of smart technologies; and development of integrated townships.

Long before green efforts and sustainability became a mandate in the industrial park industry, we introduced the centralized wastewater treatment plant and this pioneering effort has become a standard requirement by PEZA for all industrial parks since then.

We have pushed ourselves to improve our sustainability programs by setting reduction goals for greenhouse gas emissions by providing e-vehicles to our locators and employees; by using energy efficient lighting fixtures, appliances and air conditioning systems; and installing solar panels and conducting periodic vehicle emission testing.

Social Factors

We conscientiously and proactively serve the social needs of our host communities, employees, and locators through advocacy works on skills enhancement, literacy programs, and providing education to the underprivileged. These programs are complemented by provision of transportation, allowance to students, book donations, as well as facilities improvements and school repairs.
