Painting a Vision of Sustainability: Mural Unveiling on Apartment Ridge Underpass

12 October 2022 – The Makati Business Club (MBC) unveils a mural in Makati City to promote sustainable transportation and active mobility. This is a joint initiative led by Allianz PNB Life, supported by AyalaLand, Makati Central Estate Association, and MBC.

Makati Mayor Abby Binay joined the unveiling and supported the multi-sector call for sustainable and liveable cities. “The unveiling of this mural is a testament to the commitment of the business sector, government, and advocacy groups to promote sustainable and inclusive transportation in Makati.” said Mayor Binay. She also shared that the City Government of Makati plans to purchase a fleet of electric vehicles and deploy 440 electric buses as part of the LGU’s Climate Change Adaptation Program.

Allianz PNB CEO Alexander Grenz thanked AyalaLand, MBC, Makati LGU, and MACEA for coming together in this initiative. “It [the mural] is a creative and effective way of inspiring Filipinos to think about the state of the planet today,” said Grenz, “and encourage them to do what they can to secure the future, both on a personal level and on a large scale. I hope it touches many people and sparks a need for positive change.”

The initiative aligns with MBC’s Business For Biking Program, which aims to support bike commuters via infrastructure, policy, and other activities to help mobilize the workforce and improve business productivity. “In light of our commitments and responsibilities, we reaffirm the promotion of active mobility as being aligned with our goals in the private sector. Active mobility has been proven to be critical in making cities more sustainable, inclusive, and productive,” said MBC Chair Ed Chua.

The mural – located in Apartment Ridge Underpass, Ayala Avenue – was painted by local artist Glendford Lumbao.

Also present at the unveiling were German Chamber in the Philippines President Stefan Schmit and Executive Director Christopher Zimmer, Philippine Olympic pole vaulter EJ Obiena, Philippine volleyball phenom Alyssa Valdez, as well as representatives and advocates from civil society Aldrin Pelicano (MNL Moves), Myles Delfin (Bike Scouts PH), Ira Cruz (AltMobility PH), and Keisha Mayuga (Life Cycles PH).
