Our key stakeholders make up the community that we build alongside and serve.
From Megawide Foundation’s initiatives to employee development programs,
our projects support Megawide’s value of enhancing people’s lives and livelihoods.

As a construction and engineering innovator, our raw material inputs consist primarily of steel, cement, and aggregates. Proper procurement, storage, and utilization of these materials help ensure consistent quality, supply availability, and cost-efficiency.

At Megawide, we abide by both local and international standards, including the Philippine National Standards (PNS), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), American Concrete Institute (ACI), Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and ISO standard on Quality, Environmental, Safety, and Health.
Compliance is monitored by relevant regulatory agencies, including the DENR, Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA), and the Department of Labor and Employment. To facilitate this, we engage the services of accredited third-party contractors to haul and dispose of our solid waste and are required to submit documents and certificates of compliance to these government bodies. Segregation and Materials Recovery For HoldCo, solid waste is generated primarily by office activities. Bins are provided in the common office and meeting rooms for proper waste segregation and further disposal in the building’s Material Recovery Facilities (MRF) as arranged with building administration. Our construction sites uphold MCC procedures for waste management. Waste is segregated in designated MRFs according to type: hazardous, biodegradable, non-biodegradable, scrap metal, and debris. The BU strictly implements a “no proper segregation, no collection” policy to promote the separation of residual and recyclable waste. Plans are also underway to establish separate MRFs for the other BUs to promote proper solid and hazardous waste management. Collection, Transport, and Disposal Hazardous waste generated by HoldCo is transferred to the Head Office for appropriate handling by the contracted accredited third-party haulers. EPC’s volume of waste generated and disposed is monitored during scheduled pick-up by accredited haulers. GMCAC has an accredited contractor to haul solid waste generated by the terminal, as well as waste from the aircraft. A Central Waste Storage Facility is provided as a temporary holding area for the collected wastes prior to final disposal.
We have significant energy requirements and recognize that it is critical for us to monitor and manage our energy usage not only to improve our operations but also to address our responsibility to the environment and participation in the climate change agenda.

Energy-saving Initiatives

The HoldCo, EPC, and BUs adopt energy conservation methods, such as the shutdown of appliances and equipment, lights, and air-condition during break time, holidays, and after office hours.

MWM Terminals adopts energy-efficient practices to manage its consumption. This includes the shift to LED lighting, using only 50% of lighting during daytime hours, and turning off escalators and elevators at midnight.

Responsible energy use enables the airport to manage costs and reduce the use of fossil fuels, which impacts the environment. With this in mind, GMCAC has invested in the development of solar resources through a 1.64 MW rooftop solar farm in 2018.
As part of our commitment to the environment, we seek to manage emissions associated with our operations. We acknowledge that we must also comply with national environmental standards and regulations governing air emissions.

Emissions Monitoring

Quarterly self-monitoring reports are submitted to the DENR, which cover accounting of Scope 1 and 2 emissions and other air pollutants. The BUs, with the guidance of the Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) manager, also submits quarterly monitoring reports as part of the annual renewal of our Environmental Compliance Certificate.

GMCAC has an approved Environmental Management Plan, which provides for the monitoring of ambient air and noise quality indices in specific areas surrounding the airport complex. This is in line with the requirements of the Philippine Clean Air Act (RA 8749).
Even beyond our business, we recognize that water is a limited resource shared with our neighboring communities. We are making efforts across the business to improve our water efficiency metrics to ensure that water continues to be distributed to those who need it with minimal negative impact from our operations.

Water-saving Initiatives

The Head Office is exploring the possibility of installing a rainwater harvesting facility to help conserve freshwater resources. We have also installed water-efficient fixtures in our washrooms, such as faucets with sensors, to control flow and consumption and prevent wastage.

The BUs maximize their use of water by reusing or recycling water where possible. At the Precast Plant, the BIBKO machine recycles graywater from the concrete pouring process. The Batching Plant also adopts the use of recycled water, while maintaining the client’s concrete specifications. For specific structures, the Batching Plant can use recycled water for up to half of the total requirement, while for major designs, 20% recycled water is acceptable.

The Terminals have a water conservation strategy in place to ensure the prudent use of water. Water flow from sinks in our washrooms was monitored and adjusted from 15-second intervals to 5-second intervals. This has resulted in a 35% reduction from our baseline water consumption of 900 cubic meters per day.
We align our operations with Philippine environmental laws, rules, and regulations, as well as international benchmarks and standards. At Megawide, we want to uphold full compliance to set the bar for Philippine industry practice that can meet first-world standards. Presently, we abide by:

» Toxic Substances and Hazardous and Nuclear Waste Control Act of 1990
» Philippine Clean Water Act (RA 9275)
» Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000
» Submission of Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and acquisition of Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC)
» Philippine National Standards (PNS)
» American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
» American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
» American Concrete Institute (ACI)
» Construction Specifications Institute (CSI)
» American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO)
» ISO standard on Quality, Environmental, Safety, and Health

In 2019, our Company adopted a Regulatory Requirements Compliance Procedure to give our business and our subsidiaries, affiliates, BUs, departments, and project sites a framework for maintaining all our regulatory requirements.
