Vice-President's Message

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) promotes economic growth and cooperation in the Asia and Pacific region through loan, technical assistance, grants, and equity investments. Environmentally sustainable growth is an integral part of ADB’s operations. ADB is dedicated to assisting countries in meeting their 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and their national goals for reducing greenhouse gases. By 2020, ADB will double its climate financing to $6 billion, representing about 30% of its overall financing.

Environmental sustainability is also a central feature of ADB’s headquarters facilities in Manila. These facilities support around 2,400 ADB personnel, as well as more than 3,000 contractors, and other visitors.

To show ADB’s commitment to lower its carbon footprint and minimize its effect on the environment and the community, we are sourcing energy from solar and geothermal plants, reusing rainwater for irrigation and other purposes, using vermicompost to fertilize the grounds, operating a waste segregation area, and using a sewage treatment facility to treat wastewater. Aside from these, we also continue to achieve and maintain international certifications to ensure our goal toward sustainability lasts into the future. The greenhouse gas emissions of ADB's headquarters facilities decreased by 44% between 2014 and 2016.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a third- party certification program that promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability. Administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED offers an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings.

LEED recognizes performance in key areas such as human and environmental health, water and energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, implementing materials and resources management, and maintaining a sustainable site.

Sustainable by Design

ADB headquarters is designed to be sustainable and prioritizes health and safety.

Our headquarters embodies sustainable building design and development where environmental impact is minimized and health and safety of its occupants are paramount. As proof of its commitment to sustainability, ADB applied for and received the LEED Gold certification for Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance (EB + OM) in 2011 for the headquarters building in Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila that was inaugurated in May 1991. Subsequently, upon completion of the third atrium in November 2015, it was certified LEED Gold for New Construction in January 2016, which recognizes the extension building for criteria such as sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and design.

In 2016, the headquarters building including the third atrium were submitted as one complex for ADB’s recertification for LEED (EB + OM) and the results indicated an improvement from the 2011 submission with higher points within the Gold rating. Apart from attaining LEED certification, ADB also achieved two certifications under the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), specifically ISO 14001: Environmental Management in 2003 and ISO 50001: Energy Management in 2012, which have been successfully renewed regularly. All of these internationally recognized certifications demonstrate ADB’s commitment to providing an efficient and sustainable environment for the thousands of ADB staff, contractors, and visitors.

The total floor area of the entire ADB complex is approximately 22,566 square meters (m 2 ). The original building measures about 19,173 m 2 with the third atrium adding another 3,393 m 2 . ADB is one of the first buildings in the area designed to minimize energy consumption. The building is oriented along an east to west axis to allow the longer north and south sides of the building to receive natural lighting from indirect sunlight. From the beginning and evolving over time, ADB always did its best to develop a facility that consumes the least amount of resources, to minimize its effect on the environment.

ADB is committed to meeting the highest standards in its sustainable practices at headquarters. Our ISO 14001 certification for Environmental Management commits us to manage activities and products in ways that reduce the consumption of energy, water and paper, while decreasing waste. Furthermore, ADB actively measures and reports its greenhose gas (GHG) emissions according to recognized GHG protocols. ADB has the GHG emissions verified in compliance with ISO 14064 for Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory. The solar panels on the rooftop of the Special Facilities Block and the interior garden show ADB's commitment to sustainability. The solar panels produce clean energy, while the interior garden helps reduce the urban heat island effect.

Optimizing Daylight while Saving Energy

ADB optimizes the use of natural daylight to illuminate different sections of the building while considering human comfort and gaining energy savings.

Within the nine-story tower block of the original building, interior offices and work stations with single glazed windows benefit from the natural daylight reflected from the anidolic mirrors at the roof-deck into the east and west atria.

Energy

Efficiency

Most of ADB’s electricity is sourced from renewable sources. ADB has a target of reducing energy consumption by 1.5% every year. ADB conducts regular energy audits and when replacing mechanical equipment, ADB takes the opportunity to install more efficient systems.

36 Building for a Sustainable Future

Our building automation system efficiently controls temperature, humidity, and indoor air quality. It also monitors needs and automatically makes adjustments to match supply and demand for everything from air-conditioning to lights—all low-watt compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) or light-emitting diode (LED)—allocating precise levels of cooling and lighting to every part of the building. As part of ADB’s continued energy conservation efforts, approximately 12,000 CFL tubes in the office areas of ADB were retrofitted with LED tube lights. Although the initial cost for an LED tube is higher, the cost is offset by savings from reduced energy consumption in the range of 40%, and savings from the reduced need for replacement due to the much longer life span of the LED tube. Once all bulbs are replaced, the estimated yearly savings will be 300,000 kWh.

Most of ADB’s energy comes from solar and geothermal sources. The first solar power plant was energized at ADB headquarters in 2012 and was built on the rooftop of the Special Facilities Block. It has 2,040 polycrystalline panels occupying 6,640 m 2 and generates about 613 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity. Three years later, another solar power plant was built on the rooftop of the third atrium. The second power plant has 369 polycrystalline solar panels, covering an area of 716 m 2 and can generate up to 190 MWh of electricity. Both solar power plants provide ADB with about 803 MWh of electricity annually.

To promote fail-safe technology, six 1,050 kilowatt(kW) generator sets and alternators were installed to supply stand-by power to the building complex in case of power outages from natural catastrophe such as earthquakes or typhoons. Moreover, to provide emergency water supply for drinking, firefighting, and as a hedge against uneven distribution of city water, ADB built two reserve water storage tanks with a capacity of 220,000 gallons that can last for 15 days running at full usage. ADB also promotes water sufficiency by harvesting rainwater and uses this water for irrigation, general cleaning, and the third atrium lavatories.

ADB's

Third

Atrium

The completion of the ADB headquarters building in 1991 featured two atria and advanced technologies, but there has been a continuous need for updates and improvements to increase sustainability. This is why ADB architects looked far into the future when planning construction of the third atrium.

Manila is located in an area where earthquakes are a significant risk. ADB is approximately 1.3 kilometers away from the West Valley fault system, which is capable of creating an earthquake of major proportions. The third atrium incorporates a dual system that supports gravity loads and provides resistance to lateral loads.

In compliance with the National Structural Code of the Philippines, shear walls and special moment resisting frames are designed to resist significant forces caused by earthquake motions. To further resist earthquake damage, the third atrium is constructed as an independent building, separated from the older building by a 65-centimeter seismic joint. To maintain a seamless look, the joint is inset several meters out of eyesight.

As with the original building, the third atrium is buttressed by the latticework surrounding the solid cores. The cast- in-place concrete floor system provides additional stability. And where cast-in-place techniques were unnecessary—such as for arches, staircases, and level 1 facades—less expensive steel molds to form precast concrete that could be set in place were used.

54 Building for a Sustainable Future

To maintain the architectural integrity of ADB's existing headquarters, a continuous "one-look" was called for. Granite was used for the exterior façade of the original building. Extracting and shipping granite, however, disturbs the environment. Real granite is also porous, so it stains easily and is hard to clean. The granite appearance of the façade of the new atrium was achieved by using a water-based resin paint which was sprayed on cement. The environmental green paint used is low-carbon, provides superior weather resistance, and reduces building load.

Preventive

Maintenance

To continuously deliver on its commitment to minimize its carbon footprint, ADB has to make sure that its sustainable features are well maintained. The smooth operation of the building would not be possible without a regular preventive maintenance program.

Following a regular maintenance schedule helps prevent expensive last- minute repairs, increases reliability of the building, and ensures safer operations. Regular preventive maintenance is a cost-effective way to keep the building operations efficient. ADB uses a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to ensure the optimal operation of various engineering equipment.

The system maintains a database

of information about the bank’s

maintenance operations, such as the list

of equipment and the corresponding

periodic maintenance schedule for each

item. This makes it easy to identify when the equipment is due for corrective action. Deciding whether to maintain the equipment or replace it with a new one is also easier because the CMMS records the occurrence of breakdowns.

A physical inspection is also conducted,

which further validates the information. Shift engineers monitor the operating parameters on a daily basis.

In addition to the in-house service providers that handle maintenance tasks, specialist contractors conduct periodic inspections and may recommend parts that require replacement for certain equipment, such as generators, air-con chillers, fire management system, building management system, uninterrupted power supply, and elevators. ADB uses an inventory management software to ensure that the appropriate amount of spare parts is readily available (min-max planning) from the engineering store in case there is a need. The most critical maintenance work is servicing the power substation, which is conducted every 2 years. For 21 consecutive Sundays, all components of the seven substations are inspected and a diagnostic assessment is made whether these are defective, worn-out, or out of calibration. The schedule is deferred if there are weather disturbances or critical functions in headquarters.
