As part of its commitment to the community and the environment, SM Prime Holdings, Inc. (SM Prime) with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) recently launched a series of mall exhibits on sustainability and disaster resilience. The launch event took place on February 24 at SM Mall of Asia.

During the event, SM and DOST highlighted numerous initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability and disaster resilience in the country, including those that are in line with the fight against climate change. Through the exhibit, the promoters aim to reiterate the importance of working together to create solutions to today’s most pressing environmental concerns.

In his message, DOST and PHIVOLCS OIC Undersecretary Dr. Renato Solidum mentioned how Filipinos repeatedly face the risk of natural disasters and the effects of climate change in the country, saying that our story should not just be one of survival, but of becoming winners of disasters. For this, continuous training on disaster resilience and sustainability, he said, is essential.

“This project demonstrates the fusion of science and the arts, with the aim of influencing our kababayans be informed and be prepared against disasters,” said Dr. Solidum.

President SM Supermalls Steven Tan thanked DOST for its continued partnership with SM to promote a more sustainable and disaster resilient Philippines. He also said that amid the country’s collective efforts to revitalize the economy, stakeholders should also not forget about preserving the environment.

“As one of the nation’s leading integrated real estate developers, SM Prime Holdings takes its responsibility to the environment and the community seriously. While we emphasize the importance of ensuring livelihoods, business continuity and economic prosperity, it is equally – if not more important – that efforts to protect the environment are in place,” Tan said.
