Manila, Philippines (April 2024) - RLC Residences recently recorded a new milestone for Le Pont Residences as the development received an EDGE Advanced preliminary certification from the International Finance Corporation (IFC). The prestigious certification recognizes the developer’s commitment to sustainable development and its leadership in creating a more resource-efficient future.

“Imagine coming home to a beautiful, well-designed condo where you will be greeted by natural light streaming through energy-efficient windows. Picture an open space landscaped with plants within the condo where you can enjoy nature amidst the bustling city landscape. At home, see yourself as a homeowner who contributes to water conservation, thanks to water-saving fixtures installed in your unit. These and more are the things we had in mind when we designed Le Pont Residences, and we at RLC Residences are truly grateful to IFC for recognizing our efforts for sustainable living,” says Stephanie Anne Go, Assistant Vice President and Business Development and Design Head of RLC Residences.
