The World Wide Fund for Nature - Philippines recently recognized ArthaLand as one of its staunchest supporters in its drive to boost awareness and involvement in conserving our natural resources. As a sustainability partner and a green developer, ArthaLand was conferred the 2011 Environmental Leadership Award.

Manila, Philippines, September 01, 2013 --(PR.com)-- "As a company, it is our policy to be proactive in keeping our environment healthy," says ArthaLand president and CEO Angie de Villa-Lacson. "We believe that if the environment is well and healthy, the community will surely benefit. A vibrant environment supports healthy lifestyle and promotes total well-being," she adds.

The World Wide Fund for Nature - Philippines recently recognized ArthaLand as one of its staunchest supporters in its drive to boost awareness and involvement in conserving our natural resources.

As a sustainability partner and a green developer, ArthaLand was conferred the 2011 Environmental Leadership Award.

In a ceremony held recently at the Manila Polo Club, Angie de Villa-Lacson, ArthaLand's president and CEO received a plaque of recognition from WWF-Philippines chairman Vince Perez and president and CEO, Lory Tan. This is for the company's support to the sustainability efforts of this global environmental advocacy group.

The recognition was given to ArthaLand during the Black and White Gala event to celebrate WWF-Philippines' 15th year and the WWF global network's 50th anniversary. The two groups' partnership focuses on the 60+ program, a more comprehensive evolution of the globally successful Earth Hour, promoting further ways to help save the environment by conscientious resource conservation - 365 days a year.

ArthaLand is a world class boutique developer of Arya Residences in Fort Bonifacio. Arya Residences is the Philippines' first and only high rise residential development that is registered under the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program with a certification goal of Gold.

"As a company, it is our policy to be proactive in keeping our environment healthy," says Angie. "We believe that if the environment is well and healthy, the community will surely benefit. A vibrant environment supports healthy lifestyle and promotes total well-being," she adds.

"Our partnership in WWF is just one way to show our commitment to keep our environment green and sustainable for generations to come. So much like our dedication to building projects that are future proof," Angie declares.

Satisfying the global standard in green buildings, ArthaLand's flagship development, Arya Residences, employs built-in mechanisms to enable its residents to save energy and resources, maintain healthy lifestyle, and lessen carbon footprint.

For example, with the use of double piping system to deliver grey water for flushing and irrigation, the use of captured rain to water the plants, and the use of low-flow, aerated bathroom fixtures allows the residents to save as much as 40% in potable water.

As much as 25% of air-conditioning related electricity cost may be saved with the units' Low-E double glazed glass window system which acts as double sun protection system. The units' layout and efficient use of natural light and ventilation will allow as much as 14% savings in the total energy cost.

"We make sure that every detail of our project contributes to our drive to be sustainable. By design, Arya Residences will allow its residents not just to live a luxurious and gracious lifestyle, but also let them enjoy a cost efficient and environmentally conscious way of living," concludes Angie.

To get there: from EDSA/Ayala Ave. take McKinley Road towards BGC. From Gil Puyat Makati, take the Kalayaan flyover to the 32nd St., BGC then turn right at 7th Ave., towards McKinley Parkway.
