August 23, 2018 — Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) once again received five major honors at the 15th Annual International Business Awards (IBA), also known as the Stevie Awards. With close to 4,000 nominations from 74 countries around the world, the Stevie is regarded as the world’s premier business award that recognizes excellence in the workplace worldwide.
ALI subsidiary Avida Land won two Gold Stevie Awards for Marketing Campaign of the Year as well as for best Real Estate website. Avida also won a Bronze Stevie in the Best House Organ – Customers category for its Avida Livingpublication.
Avida Land’s Gold Stevie award-winning Choose to Move marketing campaign was recognized for its creative activities, programs and events that encouraged its target markets to step out of their comfort zones and choose from among various opportunities to expand and enrich their lives. These include opportunities to invest in property and to experience the independence of moving into their own homes.
Ayala Land itself won a Bronze Stevie for Management Team of the Year as it led the industry in creating more sustainable developments that enrich the lives of its customers. As the largest property developer in the Philippines, ALI has been creating large-scale, integrated, mixed-use, sustainable estates that cultivate economic centers across the country.
In the year that passed, the company continued to implement sustainability practices focusing on site resilience, pedestrian mobility and transit connectivity, contribution to local employment, and eco-efficiency.
ALI took its commitment to sustainability a step further in 2017 as it embarked on a pioneering plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2022 in all of its commercial assets. This will be done through forest protection and regeneration; increased use of renewable energy; and the implementation of passive cooling measures in the company’s developments.
The company was also awarded a Bronze Stevie for its With Every Step Corporate Video that successfully communicated ALI’s goal of enriching lives, enhancing land and providing Filipinos with a brighter future with every step it takes and with every community it develops.
More than 270 executives worldwide participated in 12 juries this year to determine the Stevie winners. The International Business Awards honors organizations of all types and sizes and the people behind them, recognizing outstanding performances in the workplace worldwide.
ALI also won five Stevie awards in last year’s 14th International Business Awards, with Ayala Land taking home the Gold Stevie for its Reshaping Lives Corporate Video and a Silver Stevie for Best Exhibition Display for the Nuvali Magical Field of Lights exhibit. The company also won two Bronze Stevies for its Project LED (Local Economic Development): Authentic stories of Ayala Land and its mission for nation building campaign, while Avida Land received a Bronze Stevie for Communications for its ‘Avida Grand Neighbor Day’ campaign.
