SM Prime explores potential partnership with Japanese firm for waste-to-fuel solutions



Leading real estate developer in Southeast Asia, SM Prime Holdings, Inc. (SM Prime) recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Japan’s GUUN Co. Ltd. to explore a potential partnership to implement waste management solutions by recycling waste paper and plastics as an alternative source of energy called ‘fluff fuel’.

Fluff Fuels are one type of RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) which are produced from shredded and compressed plastics, papers, and fibers. These are used as fuels in cement manufacturing, paper mill companies, or power companies in Japan.

SM Prime Chairman of the Executive Committee Hans T. Sy is positive that a partnership with GUUN will contribute to the waste reduction goals of the country. 

“Today, Japan’s waste management and recycling technology is among the most advanced in the world. There is no better partner for SM because we do not just talk about being big, we make sure we do it; we do not talk about being environment friendly but we do take bold steps to save the environment. I am looking forward to growing with GUUN as among leaders in solving environmental issues in the Philippines.” ~Hans T. Sy, SM Prime Chairman of the Executive Committee

GUUN Co., Ltd., founded in March 2001 and headquartered in Yokohama City, Japan, piloted the production of fluff fuel from plastic waste in Inayawan, Cebu in 2014 and recently inaugurated its P200-million, 2,400-square meter waste recycling plant in Tayud, Consolacion, Cebu. 

Since then, Japan’s Ministry of the Environment has adopted GUUN’s waste-to-fuel technology as a model for advanced low-carbon technology innovation for further deployment in developing countries.

“This will be a milestone partnership for us. I understand very much how important waste management is for SM and for the Philippines and we look forward to more projects we can do with the properties of SM Prime.” ~Shinji Fujieda, GUNN Chief Executive Officer

SM Prime’s initiatives for waste management include waste reduction and effective waste collection and segregation. Over the years, it has implemented programs such as Trash to Cash, Plastic Waste Collection, and E-Waste Collection that have contributed to reducing the total solid waste generation across its real estate portfolio. 

Through its pioneering Trash to Cash recycling market, SM Prime has collected and recycled 1.4M kg of plastics, paper, metals, and others in 2022. “We have saved 16,766 trees from the 986,222 kg of paper recycled,” SM Prime disclosed in its 2022 Integrated Report to shareholders. 

Meanwhile, SM’s Plastic Waste Collection program, a partnership with the Plastic Credit Exchange that was launched in February 2021, has accumulated 42,541kg of plastic waste from 14 mall sites. Also present in all its 83 SM Supermalls is the E-Waste Collection program for the responsible disposal of WEEE (Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment). This drive has helped process close to 7,000 kilograms of e-waste. 

Water Sustainability: Leading the change at SM Supermalls



The gradually expanding influence of the water emergency has arrived at all aspects of the globe. As indicated by the World Natural life Asset, a few 1.1 billion individuals overall need admittance to water, and a sum of 2.7 billion find water scant for something like one month of the year. Most awful, 66% of the worldwide populace might confront water deficiencies by 2025 and biological systems will endure.

As the gravity of these issues turns out to be progressively clear, a few nations have found a way critical ways to fashion a more practical future for the Earth. Imperative models incorporate Singapore's water the board plan and The Netherlands' perplexing preservation rehearses.

The Delta Works in The Netherlands was built by Rijkswaterstaat to protect the country against flooding from the North Sea.


Inspiration for the Philippines

In the Philippines, a multifaceted approach has also been embraced by the public and private sectors in safeguarding and managing water resources. SM Supermalls are at the forefront of the conservation and management of water resources in its mall facilities. Its endeavors form the foundation of a more sustainable and water-secure future that the company has long been advocating.


SM's Vision: Greening the Future

SM has been recycling water since the 1990s, treating an average of 1 billion gallons of water annually in recent years, equvalent to 1,600 Olympic-sized swimming pools. In line with the SM Green Movement, SM has been continuously working towards responsible consumption and water conservation in its properties.

To illustrate, the SM Supermalls’ comfort rooms have smart fixtures to manage water flow. There are also signages in the mall that advocate wise water use. Wastewater is channeled to the malls’ sewage treatment plants that recycle an estimated total of 4 million cubic meters of water, lessening their dependence on freshwater sources for non-potable uses. SM did this even before the measure was required by way of the Clean Water Act in 2004.i


SM Mall of Asia has been involved in various sustainability and environmental initiatives, including water recycling among others.

SM Malls have “Save Water” signages that typically aim to create awareness about water conservation and inspire people to take simple actions to reduce their water consumption


Recently, SM took a step further in resource management by launching the first-ever water filtration system at SM City Baguio. This facility can turn collected rainwater into potable water for mall tenant use such as washing and cooking as well as dishwashing and handwashing, allowing the mall to further lessen its dependence on the freshwater supply of the Baguio community.

SM Scholars Aspire to Share the Gift of Education

New SM scholars recently joined the contract signing event in Pasay.


"I desire to become an educator not just to fulfill a dream but also to be a blessing to the next generation. My unwavering commitment to becoming a teacher is directly inspired by the Kidz Life Ministry, a cherished initiative of our church dedicated to teaching children about God's word. I aspire to be a vessel for sharing knowledge, instilling hope, and nurturing a brighter future for the next generation. PNU is renowned for its ability to nurture exceptional teachers. As I aspire to become an educator, I also strive for greatness and excellence, and there's no better place to achieve that than at PNU. Watching, observing, and listening to her, I learned the basics. But right now, I want to ensure that my mother enjoys a good life before making such a significant decision." ~Princess Eunice Motel, SM Scholar
 
These inspiring words come from 18-year-old Princess Eunice Motel, an SM Scholar currently pursuing her education at the Philippine Normal University. She is one of two children of Hildajane, an on-call factory re-packer, and Richard, a set man, hailing from Caloocan City. 
 
Princess' dream of becoming a teacher has been a lifelong aspiration, deeply rooted in her heart and mind since her childhood. This calling became even more pronounced when she embraced her Christian faith.

To pursue her dreams, Princess has chosen to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education at the Philippine Normal University, her dream institution.  

Following in her mother's footsteps, Jhona Bolinas is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Education with English as her major. Born in Baliuag, Bulacan, she passed entrance exams at other universities but opted to enroll at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela due to its proximity to her family.

Despite considering other career paths, Jhona opted education, drawing inspiration from her mother, who is also an educator. Driven by her love for reading and writing, she also chose to specialize in English. 


SM scholar Krissa May Oquindo (right) aspires to be a teacher for her family and community.


When asked if she plans to work abroad after graduation, Jhona keeps her options open, recognizing it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
 
Another aspiring educator is Krissa May Oquindo. Her father, a cable technician, is the family's sole breadwinner while her mother dedicates her time to caring for the family. Krissa completed her senior high school education at the Universidad de Manila. She applied to four State universities and ultimately chose to enroll at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), known for producing graduates highly sought after by employers, as per a recent survey. 

"Being an educator has always been my passion. From the moment I set foot on a school campus, the idea of standing in front of students and sharing knowledge excites me. My passion for teaching is rooted in caring for the next generation, especially for the youth of our country.~Krissa May Oquindo, Aspiring Educator

She has selected Science as her major to deepen her understanding of the subject and to enlighten others about it. 

Krissa has no plans to teach abroad. She believes that while there is demand for teachers overseas, the same holds true in the Philippines.
  
Through the years, the SM college scholarship program has empowered 3,791 graduates who have enrolled in over 120 partner colleges and universities across the nation. These scholars enjoy full tuition benefits, monthly allowances, part-time work opportunities during semestral and Christmas breaks, job offers from the SM Group upon graduation, and engaging activities and enrichment programs. 
 
Additionally, SM's tech-voc scholarship program has produced 4,669 graduates, further contributing to the development of skilled professionals in various fields.

Ready to Zoom-Back to School with your New Motorcycle?



MDPPA Shares Motorcycle Safety Tips for the New School Year 

Back-to-school season is here, and yes, it’s the time of the year again when students start preparing for a new school year that means commuting to and from schools.  

With motorcycles being a prevalent mode of transportation, educating students, parents, and even schools about motorcycle safety are crucial to promoting road safety among Filipinos. That is why, in time for the back-to-school season, the Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association, Inc. (MDPPA) in extensive partnership with Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha are here to share some essential safety tips to ensure a smooth journey to school. 

Remember the Philippine motorcycle laws. One thing about Philippine motorcycle laws is there is a lot to remember, yet every single one is strictly implemented. One of which is the Children's Safety on Motorcycle Act of 2015. It is an act that bans "any person from driving the vehicle with a child on board on public roads where there is a heavy volume of vehicles."  

But there are some specifics in this law that every rider should remember. Since some parents use the motorcycle to drop off and pick up their child, the condition is the child should be able to "comfortably reach his/her feet on the standard foot pegs of the motorcycle." The other clause to note is the child's arm should be able to reach around and grasp the waist of the motorcycle rider. They also should be strong enough to hold onto the driver firmly. Every rider needs to remember these specifics, as the safety and well-being of children should be a top priority. 

Invest in proper motorcycle safety gear. Parents should be capable of providing high-quality motorcycle gear for their children. One thing to always prioritize is providing a budget for a durable helmet to protect the child rider from head from injuries. This is also important because it is required by law (Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009) for anyone who will ride a motorcycle. 

It also pays to invest in other proper motorcycle gear like gloves, elbow and knee pads, non-slip footwear, and reflective gear such as vests and jackets for visibility, among others.    

Learn the proper way to use Motorcycle.  For many, riding a motorcycle may seem as simple as riding a bicycle. However, there is much to learn about the correct techniques, from hopping into it and maintaining the right posture to navigating various road conditions. Members of the MDPPA, including Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha, are developing programs that anybody may join to ensure that you receive the required education regarding traffic safety. 

Teach children about proper road safety. It helps to introduce them to basic traffic rules and regulations specific to motorcycle riders, such as proper lane usage, signaling, and obeying traffic signs and signals. Instruct them to be responsible passengers by holding onto designated handles or the rider's waist, keeping their feet on the footrests, and remaining still during the ride. Train children to be observant and alert on the road, identifying potential hazards such as potholes, debris, or other vehicles and communicating these hazards to the rider. Teach them to use designated pedestrian crossings, look both ways before crossing, and wait for a safe gap in traffic when dismounting from the motorcycle and crossing the road as pedestrians 

As the new school year begins, students, parents, and schools need to prioritize motorcycle safety. By familiarizing themselves with Philippine motorcycle laws, investing in proper safety gear, and teaching children about road safety; we can create a safer environment for students traveling on motorcycles. 

Continuing its commitment to bring safer roads for Filipino students, MDPPA  has been actively engaging students, the faculty members and school administrators with the proper ways on how to ride and maintain motorcycles, along with the relevant road safety regulations by bringing a free Generation Road Safety Seminars to select schools all over the country

Being on stage with accomplished Filipinos like Bobby Lopez and Loida Lewis inspires us to work even harder to share Filipino pride here in the United States and around the world.” ~Beth Dela Cruz, President for Jollibee Group North America Asian Brands (Jollibee, Chowking, and Red Ribbon)

Dela Cruz joins the ranks of renowned trailblazers such as Bobby Lopez, Double EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & Tony) award-winning composer for Frozen, Coco, Avenue Q, and Book of Mormon, and Loida Lewis, philanthropist, businesswoman, and author of “Why Should Guys Have All the Fun?”.

Lopez was born in Manhattan to a Filipino-American family and attended Yale University before writing songs for local theatres. Lopez received his first EGOT in 2013, at the age 39, making him the youngest individual to win all four awards and the first Asian to do so.  Lopez received his second Oscar in 2018, becoming the only person in history to obtain a double EGOT,  making him a legend in the fields of television, music, film, and theater. 

Lewis, a practicing attorney in both the Philippines and New York, was the first Asian and Filipino woman to pass the New York bar without having studied law in the United States. She also served 10 years as General Attorney in the US Immigration and Naturalization Service (currently U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services) and won her discrimination action against INS in 1979.
 
Headlining the full-day summit is Karen Davila, one of the Philippines’ most celebrated news anchors who has been recognized globally and locally for her achievements in journalism as well as her contributions to various advocacies and charities.
 
PHTimeIsNow was launched in June 2018 to create a platform for Global Filipino Trailblazers, Mentors, and Changemakers to share their personal stories of learning, success, and growth in hopes of helping the next generation to reach greater heights in their personal and professional lives.

In 1994, JFC acquired majority shares in Greenwich, infusing what was a family business with industry-leading competitiveness. New pizza variants and a variety of products were introduced through the years, creating a reputation for Greenwich as a maker of mouthwatering pizzas and pastas for the Filipino “barkada.” Today, Greenwich is the country’s biggest pizza and pasta chain with over 270 stores and counting, and home of the best-selling Hawaiian Overload®, All-in Overload®, and Lasagna Supreme®.

Hype Alert: Burger King® collabs with Streetwear Fashion Brand DBTK



Bring Out Your Inner Street Style with BK® x DBTK Exclusive Merchandise for Burger  King® Chicken King product 

Ever wondered if fashion and flavor could go hand in hand? They totally can! Burger  King®, and streetwear brand, Don’t Blame the Kids (DBTK), tie up to bring food and fashion to greater heights this September. 




What connects these two top runners in their respective industries is their burning passion to deliver exceptional experiences, especially for millennials and Gen Z. Most importantly,  they value individuality and give everyone a space to establish, express, and grow their authenticity. 


The Burger King® Chicken King product makes you go ‘sheesh’! 



Much like your favorite high-quality and carefully designed streetwear piece, the Burger  King® Chicken King consists of a hefty golden, crispy, juicy, and meaty chicken burger patty made from whole-muscle chicken thigh, complemented with creamy mayo, lettuce, and tomatoes, carefully styled between two soft potato buns. 




Its product line currently has three offerings with a variety of selections that will hit right  on the spot for all types of Chicken Burger enthusiasts: the original Chicken King, Spicy  Chicken King for those who want to have a kick in every bite, and the limited time offer  BLT Spicy Chicken King for those who want Burger King’s take on a classic but with high  quality chicken patty and bacon. 


Flavor meets fashion with Burger King® and DBTK 

With the vision to immortalize the top-tier Chicken King experience from food to fashion,  Burger King® and DBTK gathered chicken burger and streetwear fans together, building on their pursuit of further showing their uniqueness and authenticity. 

"At Burger King®, we're all about creating unique experiences. It's not just about the food; it's about celebrating the real-life experiences of our burger fans. We believe in delivering the highest quality food that embodies these experiences. That's why collaborating with DBTK, a brand that champions individuality and creativity, was a natural fit. We wanted to bring together the Burger King® dining experience with the craftsmanship that the team from DBTK does in fashion for everyone to feel the authentic vibe of both worlds." ~John Velasco, General Manager of Burger King® Philippines 

 


"We are big fans of Burger King® so when we heard of the collaboration, the process of conceptualizing and creating the style and design based on the Burger King® Chicken  King was by far the easiest for us. With our shared love for authenticity and upgrading everyone’s experience in food and fashion, it all came naturally to both teams." ~Emil  Javier, Co-owner of DBTK
