We believe that adherence to good corporate governance principles is essential for the achievement of our strategic goals. At Ayala, we believe in doing business with integrity and in full compliance with all laws and regulations. At the core of Ayala are four corporate values: integrity, long-term vision, empowering leadership, and commitment to national development.
Through the years, we have developed mechanisms to ensure that our corporate governance conforms to regulatory requirements and best practices, and that we pursue our goals ethically and honestly. Those mechanisms are set forth in this Corporate Governance Manual (adopted May 31, 2017), our Code of Conduct and Ethics, Policy on Conflict of Interest, Whistleblower Policy, Policy on Related Party Transactions and Enterprise Risk Management Policy (hereafter, the Governance Codes and Policies), our Articles of Incorporation (the Articles) and By-Laws (the By-laws), and the Charters of our Board of Directors (the Board) and its Committees (the Charters).
