Moving Cities to a Cleaner Future

Climate change has been a global concern posing numerous discussions on how to mitigate its catastrophic effects, threatening life as we know it. The call to create sustainable solutions and adequate actions need collective efforts on various societal organizations. 

Held in the United Kingdom, this year’s UN Conference COP26 entitled “Moving Cities to a Cleaner Future” focuses on how cities can create significant contributions in addressing climate change.

Ms. Emma Imperial, the President and CEO of Imperial Homes Corporation (IHC), joined the global event as one of the speakers. As the woman leader behind the first solar-powered resilient community in the Philippines, Ms. Imperial gave valuable insights on how a green, technology-driven, and sustainable housing community can be a potent agent in mitigating climate change, solving housing backlog, and even alleviating poverty.

Incorporating sustainable technologies like solar and Connovate high-performance concrete panels into residential homes, IHC reduces CO2 emissions while providing utility savings to homebuyers.

IHC, as the first developer in the country awarded with an Advanced EDGE Certification by the International Finance Corporation, pledged 100% of its developments to be Net Zero Carbon ready by 2030. “We knew that there is no other way of going green than fully committing ourselves to the vision of a greener real estate,” quipped Ms. Imperial. After receiving this EDGE Milestone, IHC secured green financing for their homebuyers, creating a more viable scheme, allowing easy access for every Filipino into a sustainable community.

She also added that “As more home buyers get access to sustainable and resilient homes, the market will become more interested in investing in eco-friendly houses, forcing real estate developers to switch to innovative technologies.

Ms. Imperial and IHC started the green revolution in the affordable housing market in the country, and she is now encouraging other developers to integrate sustainable, resilient, and innovative technologies into their projects.

It is indeed high time to put all our actions together to create a better and greener home — our planet.

Transforming the Philippines into Asia’s Capital for Solar-Powered Resilient Smart Communities

Emma Imperial, President & CEO of Imperial Homes, attended the National Developers Convention 2021 as a resource speaker in the panel discussion “ROI of Green.” In the discussion, Emma Imperial reaffirms that building green is the only way forward for the real estate industry.

By building green, homebuyers unlock the financial benefits of sustainable and resilient technologies.

An Imperial Homes’ TATAG Home is built with Connovate High-Performance Concrete and equipped with solar panels, giving homebuyers the best value for their money.

A home purchased at Php 2 million now made from the resilient and eco-friendly Connovate panels with 100-year material lifespan, appreciates with an estimated value of Php 10.75 million after 30 years, compared to a home made from brick and mortar.

The 2.4 kWp net-metered solar solution can save up to Php 1.9 million or 256% yield over their monthly amortization. For a community with 550 houses, a staggering Php 1.16 billion savings on electricity for 25 years is created for our homebuyers.

Imperial Homes is also the first recipient of Green Financing. Pag-IBIG’s higher appraisal and NHMFC’s Balai Berde program are among the financing institution’s initiative to support sustainable developments.  Through Balai Berde, homebuyers get access to loans with as low as 3% interest rate. This is incredibly lower than the current rates of about 6.25% in the market, making it easier for middle- and low-income homebuyers to participate in green real estate.

To make these technologies widely available to every Filipino, Imperial Homes believes that all developers should participate in greening the real estate industry.
