Alphaland Corporation is keenly focused on integrating corporate social responsibility into all of our projects. To this end, all Alphaland developments are planned, constructed, maintained, and operated with sustainability in mind.

Balesin is the first and only Philippine resort awarded by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) for innovative tourism and sustainability. Our “Three-Pillar Innovation” initiative—technological innovation, sustainable consumption, and community empowerment—serves as the foundation for a socially and environmentally responsible approach to island operations.
The island also produces much of its own food, which is made possible by the careful collection, storage, and distribution of rainwater. The original fishing community that continues to live on the island supplies the fish served in its restaurants, and also staffs the aquaculture facilities, which include fish and shellfish farms. In addition, 40,000 coconut trees on the island, with more planted every year, provide an ample supply of coconuts. Compact, high-technology organic vegetable farms established near the airport yield much of the produce needed by the island’s restaurants, although some items (like rice and meats) will always be brought in from the mainland, as we would rather not clear forest to accommodate these.

Seeding and planting at the newly expanded vegetable farms (over 5 additional hectares of planting area), as well as the addition of the fruit and vegetable farms, were conducted in 2020 to ensure an abundant supply of fruits and vegetables for Balesin members and guests. Growing our own also reduces our carbon footprint by eliminating the need to transport into the island a significant amount of our fresh produce.

Recent project is the Balesin Sea Salt Beds. The seawater around Balesin is pristine, thus enabling us to produce an unusually pure quality of sea salt. 

As part of our drive toward sustainability and ecological responsibility, we have replaced all our plastic drinking straws with biodegradable paper straws. We have also replaced plastic water bottles with our own refillable glass bottles of Balesin purified water, which has passed all required sanitary and laboratory tests. Globally, there are 150 million tons of plastic items floating around or washed ashore. Balesin is doing its part to address this very serious problem.

In addition, Balesin has zero emissions of waste water into the sea around it. From the start, each of Balesin’s villages was constructed with a sewage treatment facility. In 2017, we completed the construction of a state-of-the-art central Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), where all the waste water and sewage from the individual villages is treated. The STP cost us Php 40 million, but it was worth every centavo.

We also shifted to using cage-free eggs from our own poultry farm. Our premium eggs are produced by Balesin Poultry Farm’s chickens bred in the Czech Republic (Dominant CZ brand) and Germany (H&N brand). Alphaland is aiming to switch to 100% cage-free eggs in all of our properties by 2025.

We are proud to maintain the highest standards of environmental protection, which have guided us from the beginning of Balesin Island Club.
