Short- to Long-Term Strategies We continue to pour our resources into creating sustainable and resilient spaces, focusing on further reducing our GHG emissions, mitigating our negative environmental impacts, and promoting efficient land use. Onsite renewable energy use and wastewater recycling were significant steps toward reducing our adverse ecological effects, and we look forward to expanding these initiatives to other RLC properties. Currently, we are the country’s largest mall operator powered by solar.
In 2021, Robinsons Malls installed rooftop solar power facilities in two of its malls, Robinsons Place Santiago and Robinsons Place Butuan, bringing its tally of solar-powered malls to 24, and growing its clean energy capacity to 30 megawatts (MW). Meanwhile, we aim to promote responsible land use by converting unused properties into green, open spaces, depending on current market needs. By 2030, RLC intends to become zero waste by diverting all non-biodegradable waste generated in our properties away from landfills and towards recycling and other waste processing facilities.
