CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
To improve the lives of the communities we serve through meaningful engagements and long-term commitments with the vision of significantly contributing to the development of the Philippines and thereby uplift the quality of the life of every Filipino.
Our CSR Philosophy
Metro Pacific Investments envisions to create a holistically beneficial impact among its businesses, its employees, its stakeholders, and the environment, going beyond the interests of its firms by embracing responsibility for its companies’ actions and mindfully integrating CSR into its business model. MPI Foundation’s (MPIF) strategic programs have evolved throughout its thirteen years of existence, now geared towards four fronts of Social Infrastructure: Education, Environment, Economic Empowerment, and Calamity Response & Relief Operations. In line with Metro Pacific Investments Corporation’s (MPIC) commitment to nation-building and its pledge to improve the lives of the Filipino people, MPIF seeks to be the heart of MPIC’s efforts in infrastructure development by empowering and uplifting the most vulnerable sectors.
MPIF is committed to implementing its programs to benefit both communities, organizations, families, and individuals in areas which MPIC portfolio companies operate, as well as areas outside its immediate business interests. As MPIC continues to progress and expand, MPIF will likewise resume its involvement in transformative legacy projects and contribution towards institutionalizing impactful, sustainable programs.
MPIF is a constituent of Tulong Kapatid, the corporate social responsibility alliance of the Manuel V. Pangilinan (MVP) group of companies. It has a Board of Trustees and is collectively managed by MVP group representatives with the objective of complementing MPIC’s investment and management strategy in physical infrastructure and public services by helping to alleviate poverty, provide high-quality educational opportunities for children and promote protection and conservation of our natural environment.

Puno Ng Pag-Ibig
Translated as “Tree of Love” or “Filled with Love”— is the annual upcycling competition we hold each December to remind our Parent Company employees about the importance of reducing waste while having fun and working together to produce the best upcycled Christmas tree from office materials. In 2018, we donated our upcycled Christmas trees to beneficiary organizations, including Saint Rita Orphanage and the Philippine Children’s Medical Center, together with gifts and snacks so that the children could celebrate the festive season.
Several of our operating companies support the Department of Education’s annual maintenance week known as “Brigada Eskwela” to help public schools prepare for the opening of the new school year.
