ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower


A publicly-listed company, ArthaLand is a pioneer in the development of premium sustainable projects that couple innovative design with high quality construction. All of the company’s residential and commercial projects adhere to global and national standards for green buildings, including LEED and BERDE.

ArthaLand is the first in the world to achieve EDGE Zero Carbon certification for its flagship office building, the ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower (ACPT) in Manila. It is the only triple-certified project in the Philippines, having also earned LEED Platinum and BERDE 5-star certification. Zero Carbon status is awarded to EDGE-certified projects that have offset 100% of their operational emissions and have reached at least 40% energy savings onsite compared to a base case building. ACPT has projected energy savings of 45% with 100% hydroelectric energy supplied by the Pantabangan Masiway Hydroelectric Plant.

“We are honored to receive this certification award as it shines light on our other projects, Cebu Exchange and Savya Financial Center. These office projects will adhere to the same standards and target EDGE Zero Carbon certification,” said Jaime González, Vice Chairman and President of ArthaLand. “By achieving Zero Carbon, we have once again raised the bar of green building standards in the country, keeping us true to our unwavering commitment of building sustainable and exceptional developments.”

Climate Change Resilient Pilot Office

Climate Change Resilient Pilot Office, located in Naga City, Philippines, has received final EDGE certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative.

Climate Change Resilient Pilot Office


The Philippines faces a shortage of affordable housing in addition to an increasing frequency of natural disasters that can damage homes, further compounding the housing crisis. The Climate Change Resilient Pilot Office serves as a model home that could help low-income residents most affected by natural disasters and housing shortages. It’s situated on the Bicol State College of Applied Sciences and Technology (BISCAST) campus and also functions as an office for the college.

The home has a safe shelter to provide protection from typhoons or other natural disasters and is slightly elevated from the ground to prevent flooding. It also has advanced systems and solutions that dramatically curb energy usage and nearly eliminate water usage compared to a typical building. BISCAST hopes that the pilot home can be implemented in cities throughout the Philippines.

BISCAST is committed to fostering innovation and technology that builds resilience to challenges caused by climate change. Located in Naga City on the Bicol peninsula, the public university is participating in the Urban Nexus project, to promote a circular economy for cities in emerging markets and  increase access to resource-efficient, affordable housing. BISCAST aspires to adopt the approach within its own campus starting with a waste management system. It also plans to integrate EDGE into its curriculum by teaching students how to use the EDGE App. The Climate Change Resilient Pilot Office has received final EDGE certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative.

A Place

A Place, located in Pasay City, Philippines has received final EDGE certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative.

A Place


ASYA Design prides itself in being a pioneer of green architectural design in Manila and its own headquarters stands as a symbol of this commitment. The 12-story office building is resource efficient, communicating the company’s values toward sustainable architecture. The headquarters serves the green building market in the Philippines and has an entire floor dedicated to tenants who work in the retail industry for green products. The building maximizes space and natural daylight, while also conserving natural resources. ASYA created a coral-like design on the façade of the building to remind the public of the rich biodiversity of coral reefs.

The building uses passive design features such as less glazing and building orientation to keep the building cooler during warm days. Other green features reduce energy and water use, resulting in lower utility bills for ASYA . The building has reflective paint and higher thermal performance glass on the exterior of the building to conserve energy. A Place is also expected to reduce its water use by up to 77 percent with the help of a rainwater harvesting system that covers the entire roof as well as grey and black water treatment and recycling systems.

As an inspiration for other companies who want to go green, ASYA is proud to live out its mission by starting with its own office. ASYA and its employees are committed to building a sustainable future for the Philippines from the buildings constructed to encouraging environmentally-friendly lifestyles for those who live in the country. The building was awarded Best Mixed-Use Office Project at the Philippine Urban Land Institute Healthy Places in 2016. A Place has received final EDGE certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative.
