Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives

Governance  >  Annual Corporate Governance Report  > Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives

The Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility is evolving. Just like any other corporation or organization, it all started in philanthropy and realized that the impact was not significant. Then it evolved to Corporate Social Responsibility where employees were encouraged to volunteer and reach more communities. However, the impact is still not significant. To create a material and relevant impact, the Group has embraced the creation of shared value process, two years ago. The Group use its resources and capabilities to innovate products, services and processes to address a societal challenges and create a socially-relevant business model and bring it to a scale. The Group has recently invested in education and healthcare, two areas where we can introduce innovative solutions in addressing the broader communities’ social challenges.

Below are some of the group’s initiatives:

Initiative Beneficiary

The Sustainability Council, through the leadership of AC, embarked on a nationwide reforestation / forest protection program with a current target of covering 13,000 hectares. This initiative is called “Project Kasibulan”.

This project primarily benefits the environment and our companies who are in need to off-set their carbon emission. This further benefits the employees from the Ayala Group who take part in the initiative as it drives a change in their mindset to care more for the environment.

The project has gained traction as well and is attracting bigger batches of volunteers.
