Italian Design Day with IDC’s Chairman & CEO

​​Sustainable design and development are increasingly becoming important in the Philippines as the country faces environmental and social challenges such as climate change, pollution, and poverty. Sustainable design and development aim to balance economic growth, social well-being, and environmental protection in order to create a more sustainable future.

“Another important aspect of sustainable design and development is preserving the natural environment. The Philippines is home to a rich diversity of flora and fauna, and sustainable development seeks to minimize the impact of human activities on these ecosystems,” said Arch. Romolo V. Nati, IDC Chairman & CEO

This can include strategies such as using green roofs and walls to promote biodiversity, using low-impact development techniques to reduce erosion and runoff, and protecting sensitive habitats from development.

Sustainable development also aims to promote social well-being by creating livable communities that are accessible to all. This can involve the incorporation of public transportation systems, bike lanes, and pedestrian walkways to promote mobility and reduce reliance on private cars. It can also involve the creation of mixed-use developments that provide access to a range of services, such as grocery stores, schools, and healthcare facilities.

In addition, sustainable design and development can promote economic growth by creating jobs and supporting local economies. For example, the use of local materials and labor can support local businesses and reduce the carbon footprint of construction projects.

There are a number of sustainable design and development projects underway in the Philippines. One example is the Bonifacio Global City development in Metro Manila, which incorporates green spaces, bike lanes, and energy-efficient buildings. Another example is the Palawan Sustainable Landscape and Seascape project, which aims to promote sustainable tourism and protect the natural environment of the Palawan region.

“Sustainability is critical in addressing these challenges and promoting a more resilient and prosperous future for the Philippines. Sustainable development seeks to balance economic growth, social well-being, and environmental protection in order to create a more sustainable future.” he added
