UC CEA students together with SM representatives for the successful launch of Sustainability Tour.

To inspire the youth towards sustainable living, SM Supermalls entered into an academe partnership with top universities in Baguio City for a series of educational tours that highlight water conservation, energy efficiency and solid waste management. The instructive activity aims to build awareness among the youth to understand sustainability in creating positive environmental footprint and improving the well-being of our communities.

In collaboration with University of the Cordillera College of Engineering and Architecture and SM
City Baguio, recently launched the Sustainability Features and Greening Effects Tour on
October 06, as part of its commitment to the community and the environment. The short-guided
tour around the mall showcase accessible eco-friendly facilities that SM City Baguio provides.
This reaffirms the SM group’s commitment to empowering young students to dream big and to
spread social good in their communities.

SM City Baguio Regional HR Manager said,” This is a pilot program for SM City Baguio, SM
City Baguio and nag start nito. since we have mall sustainability features like the rainwater
being converted into drinking water. Although in other SM malls, meron ng ganitong technology,
yung rainwater catchment pero this time, it’s different in SM City Baguio, it is converted to
drinking water.”

Thirty selected college students from University of the Cordilleras College of Engineering and
Architecture participated the tour around the mall’s eco-friendly facilities such as the EV
Charging Stations, Rainwater Treatment Facility, waste segregation bins, Plastic Waste
Collection booths, water recycling initiatives and bicycle amenities.
The Sustainability Tour is one of the numerous programs of SM in helping to care for the
environment and promote sustainable living among the youth. Some of the mall-based activities
are the Trash to Cash Recycling Market held every first Friday and Saturday of the month; daily
water recycling systems, and environmental campaigns such as the Green Film Festival, Green
Retail Agenda, and the International Coastal Cleanup Drive, to name a few.
“Sa tour po namin ngayon, masaya po kami kasi mas nagkaroon kami ng knowledge na ia-
apply namin sa aming course …” said Environmental and Sanitary Engineering (EnSE) student
Christine Ann Abalos.

SM’s dedication aligns with the world’s environmental sustainability and climate action goals.

SM Supermalls, through its initiatives, paves the way for a greener, more secure future. This
passion continues to bridge innate student potential as well as providing a channel for the youth
to play an active role in community and nation-building.
