    NLEX Corporation successfully reduced 154 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions in its operations in 2023. 

    The tollway company explained that it is eager to increase this further, by powering its telecoms systems using a hybrid system of solar energy and the traditional grid. 

    Moreover, NLEX Corporation will also install solar-powered roofing systems in its Balintawak office by the third quarter of the year to minimize electric consumption in the said facility.

    “While we aim for convenience, innovation, and modernization for our infrastructure and business, we believe that this should not be at the expense of the environment. More than a road, we want NLEX to be the leader of sustainable infrastructure in the country. We will continue to implement projects that will make a positive impact in the environment so that we will be able to leave a greener NLEX for the future generation,” noted NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi Bautista.

    Prior to its ISO 50001 certification, the toll road firm secured and maintained accreditation for four other ISO standards namely ISO 39001:2012 Road Traffic Safety Management System (RTSMS), ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management System) and ISO 45001: 2018 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System).
