The country's largest mall operator powered by solar, RLC has 24 malls with onsite solar power source. In 2020, the company decreased mall emissions by 40.3%. Shorter operating hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to reduced energy consumption. 

At RLC, we are committed to creating low-carbon and resilient spaces. We see huge opportunities to lower emissions across the life cycle of our buildings, and in doing so we contribute to the fight against climate change, while creating value for our stakeholders and society. To reduce our demand for fossil fuel-based electricity and limit our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, we have been investing in onsite solar installations for several years now. For 2021, we have added ₱148 million to make our total investment ₱1.6 billion for 24 Robinsons Malls. Our expanded sourcing of renewable energy has resulted in avoided emissions equivalent to 19,007.10 MT Co2 e in our malls, an increase of 29.9% over last year's 14,627.89 MT Co2 e. The common area electricity consumption of office buildings owned by RLC by year-end 2021 increased by 43.5% in 2021, due to more tenants returning to offices. GHG emissions (scope 1 and 2) also increased accordingly, but at a smaller rate of 18%. The relatively smaller increase is due to Giga Tower's renewable energy use.
