Amidst the rising of big players in the business concentrating in metropolitan cities, Chairman and CEO Arch. Romolo Nati has one thing to say about it on why Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC) chose to play in growing cities, which started with an investment in Cagayan de Oro. “What I discovered first when I visited the Philippines was that most developments are concentrated in Metro Manila and other big cities, while there were no big developments in other minor locations. People choose to go to these cities thinking they could find a better job or a better life. Our move for emerging cities is to put forward on reversing the mentality of people and investors”.
There are a lot of things why green buildings have greater importance compared to conventional ones. Two among those practical reasons are; first, green developments are good for savings, and second, they have less negative impact on the environment. Further, what makes it more interesting is that people living in green buildings gain health advantages.
In order to promote sustainable management of the environment in Brgy. Indahag, a far-flung community in Cagayan de Oro City, green builder in Northern Mindanao, Italpinas Development Corp. recently participated in the tree planting activity led by the Philippine Air Force Tactical Operations Group 10 (PAF-TOG 10).
