As published in Business Mirror on March 31, 2015


Eton Properties, one of the country’s leading full­range property developers, joins the world’s largest voluntary switch­off in a worldwide campaign to fight climate change. In partnership with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, the 60­minute switch­off at Eton Centris on Saturday evening aimed to delivera vital and urgent message on the need for conscious climate­change solutions. “Eton’s participation in this voluntary mass action to save the planet is in solidarity with WWF­Philippines’s programs that are anchored on two main goals—to secure stable and sustainable sources of food, water and energy, and to establish long­term solutions in making the Philippines climate change­resilient,” says Martha Herrera, Eton AVP for Marketing, Public Relations and Corporate Communications. “Climate change does not recognize boundaries, but the most vulnerable are the poorest countries, and the poorest in all countries. Earth Hour is one of the very rare examples that empower people to be part of the global community tackling climate change,” shares Marco Lambertini, director general of WWF International, during the start of WWF’s Earth Hour campaign in the Philippines in February. Joining the switch­off at Eton Centris were 87 locators  composed of business­process outsourcing offices in Centris Cyberpod.retail tenants in Centris station, as well as restaurants and shops in Centris Walk. Other Eton developments that also joined the switch­off are One Archers Place and Eton BayPark Manila; Belton Place, Eton Residences Greenbelt and Eton Parkview Greenbeitin Makati City; Eton Emerald Lofts in Ortigas Center; and 68 Roces in Quezon City.
