Our environmental policy states our commitment to the continuous quality improvement of our environmental management system by providing innovative solutions and initiatives on energy conservation, pollution control, waste management, and environment protection in fidelity to environmental laws and in compliance with regulatory requirements, towards environmental stewardship and sustainable development.

We utilize solar panel technology and building management system for our Electricity Conservation Program. As part of our Pollution Control Program, one engineering solution is the construction of a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), which controls water pollution and helps conserve water.

Further, we have put up vertical gardens in our pathways and pocket gardens in our buildings to help control heat and air pollution. We also regularly conduct tree planting, mangrove planting, and coastal clean-up activities. For all of these, we have received numerous awards from the government in recognition of our environmentally-sound and eco-friendly programs.

In addition, we have a Verde Island Passage – Center for Oceanographic Research and Aquatic Life Sciences, or simply VIP CORALS. This center aims to take progressive leadership in providing research, teaching, and extension services on the marine resources and its marine environment in the Verde Island Passage, recognized as the center of the center of marine shore fish biodiversity in the world.
