Universities in Baguio in collaboration with SM City Baguio will launch the Mall Sustainability Features and Greening Effects tour as part of its commitment to the community and the environment.

The recent Academe Partnerships with the top universities of Baguio signaled this collaboration between schools and SM Supermalls in areas of learning and development.

With the launching of the Sustainability Features and Greening Effects Tour, SM Supermalls will provide an opportunity to influence commitment to giving back to the planet, which was cemented and made a central thrust toward the future through the SM Green Movement, where all of SM is working together to give back to the planet.

This tour will help students equip themselves with knowledge as each tour will be facilitated and delivered by an expert.

 “Students will be exposed to the industry part wherein they will see the different aspects of sustainability, especially on the part of civil and sanitary engineering wherein they will be visiting the treatment plant, the water filtration system of the company, and also for the other courses that we are offering for architecture department if there will be a chance to tie up with the design part, that is a good exposure for the students,” said Engr. Dexter Hansel Apnoyan, University of the Cordilleras-CEA Academic Dean.

As part of the tour, students will learn more about sustainable mobility, waste segregation, water recycling initiatives, and how the rainwater facility treatment works.  SM City Baguio, as an active industry partner of the University, is excited to showcase the mall’s sustainability initiatives, via an educational tour that aims to provide an overview and valuable insights into the mall’s sustainability practices and how we integrate them into our day-to-day mall operations. 

Mall Sustainability Features and Greening Effects Tour kicks off on October 6, 2023, with selected students from the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA) of the University of the Cordilleras.

The attainment of community development and long-time advocate for environmental stewardship is a commitment shared across SM. 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. ### (PR)
