ETON Properties Philippines recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA), in line with the company’s goal to promote sustainable living in the communities that it operates.
Eton’s greening and treeplanting program in its various residential communities aims to pursue a lifestyle that seeks to reduce carbon footprint and provide a green and healthy environment for its residents to live in.
As part of the agreement, LLDA will be turning over a total of 1,000 tree saplings in a span of two years. A total of 670 tree saplings were initially turned over in a ceremony held at Eton City in Santa Rosa, Laguna.
