Who says a greener community cannot go hand-in-hand with economic development? The City Government of Pasig has been making significant progress by incorporating a sustainable environment and green practices amidst the tall office buildings of business companies in the city. It continuously leads the community towards the green movement while enjoying the benefits derived from the city’s main business center, the Ortigas Central Business District.
Aside from encouraging the neighborhood to run, walk, bike, and exercise every Sunday along F. Ortigas Jr. Road (Emerald Avenue), Pasig is also the only city where government employees can ride a tutubi to travel around the city. The tutubi is a bike-sharing program, which, in partnership with Asian Development Bank, creates a different transportation trend to promote a cleaner and fresher air for everyone. Along with this is the existence of e-jeepneys and e-tricycles.
