Extending its sustainability efforts to the grassroots level, Mandani Bay developer HTLand, Inc. planted approximately 36,000 mangrove propagules in Bolinawan, Carcar City, Cebu.
In partnership with the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) Argao, Local Government Unit of Barangay Bolinawan, and People’s Organization (PO) – Dunggoan Bolinawan Mangrove Seashore Association Inc. (DUBOLMASAI), several mangrove planting sessions were held between August 24 and September 7, 2020.
“This mangrove planting activity is one of the many ways Mandani Bay is taking care of the environment by involving our partners in the communities in our sustainability efforts,” said Gilbert Ang, HTLand Project Director.
True to its passion for the environment, HTLand pushes for sustainable designs through its flagship project Mandani Bay. Its first residential enclave Mandani Bay Suites has received a 4-star Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (BERDE) accreditation from the Philippine Green Building Council (PHILGBC). The BERDE rating tool identifies green building practices that excel above and beyond local environmental regulations and standards.
