AboitizPower paves the way for a sustainable future in the Philippines

By: - November 25, 2020

Films in the 1960s often had fanciful depictions of the future, with flying cars, rocket shoes, and chrome-plated thingamajigs everywhere. The future couldn’t have been more brimming with possibilities during that time.

Fast forward to the 21st century and impressions of the future aren’t as idyllic as they were 50 years ago. There hasn’t been a shortage of dystopian movies over the last decade, with environmental destruction among the key themes in most of these works of fiction. Who could blame Hollywood, though? Peak oil? Loss of forest and natural vegetation? Extreme weather conditions? We’re already ticking off those boxes now.

With increasing carbon dioxide emissions, global warming, and climate change looming right above our heads, we pretty much already have an idea of what kind of future awaits us. But there’s still something we can do to keep that from happening.

Nations are hard at work to ensure a better and more sustainable future for everyone. Global climate policies are driving the shift to renewable energy, and this transition has never been a more important point of discussion among governments all over the world than it is now.

As movements pushing for clean and renewable energy gain more traction, various countries are intensifying their efforts to harness power from sources such as the sun, water, steam from under the earth, and wind, among others.

Responsibly tapping into these gifts of nature reduces the likelihood of environmental degradation as these emit less carbon dioxide, which is considered the biggest culprit behind global warming. Renewable energy is practically infinite if managed properly, and generating power from renewables does not deplete or damage the planet’s resources. Not only does this help mitigate climate change, it also helps foster sustainable development. Harnessing clean energy also helps improve public health, since there will be less pollution, and opens more opportunities for business and employment in communities near its facilities.

In the Philippines, there is an increasing level of awareness among people on issues around climate change, sustainable development, and green environment. The country is also on its way to increasing the share of renewable energy in its capacity mix by 2040.

With more consumers becoming aware of the long-term benefits of renewable energy, AboitizPower is well-positioned to meet this increasing demand while at the same time maintaining thermal energy sources in its portfolio as it addresses the country’s trilemma of energy security, energy equity, and environmental sustainability.
