Pioneering Green Revolution in Cold Storage

AyalaLand Logistics Holdings Corporation (ALLHC), the industrial parks and real estate logistics arm of Ayala Land, is advancing sustainable development by transitioning its cold storage facilities to renewable energy sources. This initiative aligns with ALLHC’s ongoing efforts to minimize its carbon footprint and enhance environmental stewardship. Starting at the end of April 2024, the ALogis Artico Biñan 2 facility will switch to renewable energy under the Green Energy Option Program (GEOP), positioning two of its three cold storage facilities to operate entirely on renewable energy—a notable achievement in ALLHC’s sustainability journey.

The Green Energy Option Program (GEOP)

Launched under the Renewable Energy Act of 2008, the Green Energy Option Program enables electricity consumers to choose renewable energy sources to fulfill their energy needs. ALLHC’s participation in GEOP underscores its commitment to shifting away from non-renewable resources and fostering a more sustainable future. This move supports the growth of the renewable energy sector and ensures the efficient operation of ALLHC’s facilities.

Embracing renewable energy

ALLHC’s move to renewable energy in its cold storage operations marks a significant step toward a more sustainable logistics industry. This shift not only helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also aligns ALLHC with international sustainability objectives, setting a benchmark for industry peers.

Benefits of renewable energy
